Did you know that one of the oldest fixtures of the Mediterranean diet is Greek Yogurt? Yogurt has a long history dating back to the 6th Century B.C. Turkey. In the ancient times Central Asian herdsman stored goats milk in leather pouches. Yogurt came about as the milk fermented!
Over the centuries, yogurt has evolved into many varieties, and expanded from home production to mass production. It is a staple in many diets throughout the world, especially the Mediterranean diet. In particular, Greece has long used it as a base to their tzatziki dip.
Greek Yogurt is both delicious and boosts gut health when consumed regularly. We recommend consuming a cup of Greek yogurt at least once a week to maintain good gut health.
Your gut is your “second brain”!
The probiotics in yogurt are notably what sets this powerhouse food apart from other nutritious food products.
Probiotics contained in Greek yogurt provide you with the much needed good gut bacteria which populate the lining of your lower intestinal tract.
Probiotics help you digest food, fight harmful bacteria, and regulate your immune system.
Outstanding Benefits of Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt contains ...
High amounts of protein which help build and repair tissues.
Vitamin B12 which helps keep the body's nerve and blood cells healthy.

Calcium which is necessary to build bones and keep them healthy. Calcium also enables your blood to clot, your muscles to contract, and your heart to beat.
Good fats such as omega 3’s and unsaturated fats which all help reduce inflammation. Good fats also help you stay full longer.
Greek yogurt is a perfect after-workout snack, breakfast, substitute for sour cream and mayonnaise, and can be the perfect addition to many appetizers, main dishes, and even desserts.
