The stresses posed by COVID-19 lurking about are mentally fatiguing. You’re not alone - we’re all going through it. The anxieties of having to balance everyday responsibilities and stay on track with our health goals are put to the test by cyclical curfews and lockdowns, forcing us to consistently adapt and readjust.
With added stress and limited physical movement, looking after ourselves has never felt more tiresome - but it has also never been more important. Preparing meals that are delicious and nutritious suddenly seem more burdensome rather than fun. Instead, we often turn to sugary foods, creating a dangerous cycle: these highly addictive foods also cause energy dips that impede our ability to function at work, as a parent, or even during basic exercise. How do we find a balance and how can make eating clean easier? Meet, Innosense.
That is the problem that Dr Kaycee Reyes endeavours to solve. At the launch of her newest food brand Innosense, Kaycee spoke passionately about preventative medicine, reiterating Hippocrates’ aphorism: let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food. She illuminated how clean eating mitigates silent inflammation in the body - an underlying factor in acne, skin diseases, and chronic diseases like heart disease and hypertension. But she recognises how demanding it can be: ingredients are often expensive and hard to find, preparation can be time-consuming, and foods marketed as “healthy” are often unappetising.
