Before heading to Stockholm for a month, all the research I read on current food prices warned that it would be extremely expensive to eat in Stockholm at this time. However, I actually found it easy to find affordable healthy food in Sweden.
In fact, pictured here is a favorite quick breakfast (frukost) that I’ve loved: müsli, plant milk, cucumber, and seasonal fruit.
Organic. Pure. Gluten-free. It was purer and more affordable than what I've found in North America.
And then there are the organic greens. A quick steam (with some apple cider vinegar) makes them tasty.
So Where Can You Buy Healthy Food, Affordably, in Stockholm?
At Paradiset (paradise!).
Paradiset is like Stockholm’s mini Whole Foods, but with more affordable (co-op) pricing on many items.
There are a few Paradiset stores in Stockholm, and by some miracle, our Airbnb was right around the corner from one of them (I highly recommend this). Paradiset also delivers!
Paradiset also has a deli, with affordable (take-out or eat-in) lunch specials that truly tasted exquisite.
In the future, we will be sure to stock up at Paradiset before leaving Stockholm, so we can take some of our favorite (organic, gluten-free, plant-based) products to our next destination (after verifying they’re allowed across the border, in our checked bag), because we can’t find this stuff just anywhere:
our favorite müsli
nuts (super cheap)
pure plant milk (crazy to pack, but yes!)
sugar-free lingonberry jam
a miraculous natural face moisturizer
a pink natural lipstick
