JOUR­NAL All About: Skyr Sim­i­lar to strained yo­gurt, this cul­tured dairy prod­uct has been part of Ice­landic di­ets for cen­turies. Full of pro­bi­otics to boost im­mu­nity and di­ges­tive func­tion, skyr is great for those on the go. “The high pro­tein and cal­cium con­tent is matched with the per­fect ra­tio of car­bo­hy­drates, mak­ing skyr ideal for peo­ple with ac­tive life­styles,” says An­drew Buerger, founder of B’More Or­ganic. Check out their skyr smooth­ies on page 42. Wa­ter is great for a num­ber of rea­sons—it’s calo­rie-free, keeps the body hy­drated and en­er­gized, and flushes out tox­ins—but when plain H O gets old, opt for these home­made fruit-and-herb in­fused recipes in­stead of reach­ing for a store-bought fla­vored wa­ter, which is likely laden with un­wanted ex­tras such as sugar.
