Combining expertise in nutrition and organic food to help companies and schools improve sustainability and optimize employees' and pupils' health and performance.
Maximum productivity, creativity and performance as well as the prevention of illness (and paid sick-leave) are the main reasons why more and more companies look to optimize the general well-being of their employees.Likewise more and more schools are looking to improve the long-term health, well-being and performance of their pupils. Body image issues and disordered eating are rampant among teenagers.
Nutrition is directly linked to health, well-being, performance and productivity
It`s very straight-forward: Food provides the energy we need to function and perform physically and mentally. Whenever we eat, the food is broken down into its components, which are then either used for important metabolic functions, or for energy supply.
So on the one hand, food is fuel and what and how much we put into our tank affects how long we can go before running out of gas.
On the other hand, food is not just fuel or calories, it is also information. It literally talks to all our cells, conveying different messages, influencing blood sugar, hormones, enzymes and even DNA. This ability to turn on or off certain genes is called “epigenetics” and implies that even if we have certain genetic predispositions, we still have a lot of influence on whether or not those genes will actually express themselves or not.
In other words, our food - and also our lifestyle and mindset choices - determine to a large extent whether or not we will get sick.
