Greece ● 15 March 2017
 

The Greek yoghourt is famous worldwide due to its special taste, its quality and its preparation, which makes it an ideal way to start your day with energy. Particularly when you travel, you need a rich breakfast that will keep you active during the day and will give you the strength you want to walk and explore the new destination. In every hotel and hostel in Greece, the breakfast includes Greek yoghourt in many variations and with many ingredients to combine this amazing product in order to have the taste and the recipe you want.

The Greek or strained yoghourt is different from the regular because it is a creamy, rich yoghourt with less sugar, more carbs and a tart taste. It is a nutritious snack that can benefit your health in many ways. A plain cup of non-fat Greek yoghourt includes vitamins and other nutrients, such as minerals and protein. In detail, yoghourt has a higher amount of protein than milk. Remember that protein is vital for your body to have energy during a tiring day, to build bones and muscles and to have a healthy immune system. The Greek yoghourt includes also probiotics, vitamin B-12, iodine and potassium. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that keep you regular and happy, decreasing stomach issues, calcium helps your vital organs to function properly, while the vitamin B-12 is essential for your red blood cells, your brain and the DNA synthesis. Potassium lowers the blood pressure and iodine is important for proper thyroid function.

The recipes with Greek yoghourt are numerous. For breakfast, you can combine it with honey, nuts, cinnamon, fresh or dried fruits, such as banana, strawberries, figs or cherries. Alternatively, very tasteful is also the Greek yoghourt with ginger, corn, marmalade or biscuits. Even during a diet, you can definitely combine it with honey, if you don't like its sour taste, because it provides you with fewer calories than any other snack. Greek yoghourt is also used in Greece as an ingredient in many desserts, instead of cream or whipped cream, in order to have a healthier, more nutritious and less fatty delicacy. It is also used in food recipes because it is perfectly combined with chicken, turkey, pistachio, curry and turmeric.
