I strive to get as much probiotic food as I can in my daily meals. These are ideas that work for me.
I like to have one smoothie each day as a meal or part of a meal. I make it with 1/2 - 1 cup of kefir milk, 1/4 frozen banana, 1 tsp strawberry preserves, 1 tsp raw honey. I think it tastes nice and it has all the probiotics of kefir and the amazing properties of raw honey.
I also usually have a serving of coleslaw each day. But I do love salad so it is not a chore. I make it with half mayonnaise and half kefir milk. I also include raw apple cider vinegar for added probiotic benefit. And a teaspoon of raw honey for balance. This salad keeps for a long time in the fridge, after all it is soaking in ferment/preservative.
Another enjoyable way to get more probiotics is in tuna salad for sandwiches. I mix the canned tuna with some mayonnaise and I add quite a bit of kefir milk. I also chop up my cultured vegetables, namely sauerkraut, and mix it in for the pickle. Strangely, this gives the tuna a sweeter flavour. I like a lot of pickle, so 1/4 - 1/3 of the mixture is pickle.
Ranch Salad dressings can be made according to recipes but substituting the buttermilk portion with kefir. In fact, I believe all recipes calling for buttermilk (especially healthful when raw) can be substituted with kefir milk.
Live cultured cabbage/sauerkraut is delicious as a condiment on hamburgers, hot dogs, or with curries. I also conjecture that it is helpful to have cultured pickles with meat for digestion. Raw pineapple which contains bromelain is also helpful to have along with or after meat to help with digestion.
Of note, when probiotic food is cooked or heated, the living cultures are killed. Therefore, eating these things with minimal or no heating is the aim.
I don't want to compromise health for taste or taste for health so I am striving to find the best balances I can. If the food tastes nice I will be less likely to stop putting in the effort. The foods I described are foods I genuinely love and would make similarly even if I was unaware of the specific goodness I was adding.

Oh my gosh, we are really synching now. I also prefer Sirena! And it is packed in massive amounts of olive oil already. In fact, last night I made some tuna salad mix (with kefir ) so it would be ready to prepare a packed lunch for my son this morning. I gave the dogs some of the olive oil I drained off of it. Not a good idea. One had too much and it had a laxative effect. Ooops.
