Marelie Winterbach lives in Pretoria, South Africa and is a qualified Diet and Nutritional Advisor. She founded NutriRoots, a family nutrition practice, at the beginning of 2011. Marelie consults in the form of cooking classes, talks and private consultations. Her passion lies in providing balanced tailor-made lifestyle programmes to suit individual needs.
Having been in the hospitality business for almost 15 years has cultivated in her heart a love for food and what it does for the human race. But often, with a hint of sadness she has also observed how original wholesome foods are over processed and reinvented into foods we cannot recognise and benefit from. They have been stripped of their original flavours, authenticity and sadly their life-giving, sustaining nutrients. Being a nutritional advisor has changed the way she approach food as a life giving substance. Her main focus with Nutriroots is quality and authenticity – enhancing the experience of food.
