I recently visited the famous land of rulers, philosophers, conquerors where the landscape is dotted with palaces and temples dating back to 3rd century BC. I’m sure you guessed it right - Greece.
We like to travel to new places to learn about their culture and heritage. In the past few years my most memorable moments have been time spend with my 2 kids and wife exploring new countries. Greece was easy destination to choose because of unimaginable wealth of historical treasures. We had some doubts about the weather in summer but compared to Texas it was much nicer with low humidity and a cool breeze in the evening.
We all know about the Greek yoghurt whose popularity in US rose with the growth of chobani http://www.chobani.com. Yoghurt is one of the most common probiotic foods and it contains lactobacillus. Some other probiotic foods are kefir, kimchi, sauerkraut. WIth my interest and passion in probiotics I wanted Simply Biotic probiotics and greek yoghurt to be clicked in one frame. I had written a blog recently comparing Simple Biotic probiotics to Yoghurt, Kefir etc (https://www.simplybiotic.com/blog/11-simply-biotic-or-yoghurt-kefir-for-women-and-weight-loss) and it was befitting to capture best man made probiotic - Simply Biotic and greek yoghurt. It was a journey across the Atlantic that was truly rewarding especially when the best probiotic - Simply Biotic met its cousin greek yogurt.
As the picture shows - greek yoghurt is displayed in large wooden bowls in cafes and eateries lined along all major roads. This picture is clicked on our way to the Acropolis. While in the cafe I ordered a serving of yoghurt with honey and nuts. Kids got chocolate ice cream as always. Seating outside is quintessential to european lifestyle which we really enjoyed during this trip as well.

The consumption of probiotics is on the rise and the enthusiasm in general public is far greater than supported by scientific literature of the past.
