I was working in a coffee shop the other day, when I suddenly realised that I have never properly introduced myself. So I would like to take this opportunity and this platform to connect with you on a more personal level and to also get to know you better.
I am Lize Schreiber, wife, sister, friend, business owner, student, mathematician and lover of all things nutrition. In 2017 I married the love of my life, my soul mate, best friend and partner in crime. He is my rock solid, greatest supporter and all time hero.
I grew up in Stellenbosch, with a passion for Science, food, nutrition, wellness and the environment. I graduated from the University of Stellenbosch with an honours degree in Applied Mathematics. Soon afterwards, I started working for about 4 years as an Applied Mathematician. But I was lacking purpose, my big WHY. I felt empty. I wanted to make a lasting difference in people’s lives. I wanted to touch people in a way that is lacking in today’s busy lifestyle. Fast forward to a few months ago, and after completing a few courses in nutrition, I officially started my studies in nutrition and wellness coaching. Watch this space because I will be opening practice in 2018, where my focus will be on people who are stressed, have low energy and little time, who wants to quit fad dieting, make healthy living a lifestyle, heal their relationship with food and love their bodies again.
Around the same time I started studying again, I saw a gap in the South African market, and by combining my love for nutrition and the environment, Take Outs from Nature was born. Take Outs from Nature is all about living a more waste free life but also to provide you and your family with affordable, easily accessible and nutritious whole foods. And by doing the above, I feel excited to wake up in the morning and I am fulfilled.
Whenever I am not in the kitchen testing new recipes or reading some article on health/wellness/nutrition, you will find me hiking, relaxing around a campfire or participating in a road running event.
This journey is not always as rosy as social media makes it out to be, but I am forever grateful for this amazing opportunity that has come my way. I will therefore strive to always bring you content that is real, honest and close to my heart.
So that is me in a nutshell. Now I would like to know more about you. Please feel free to let me know if there are certain topics that you would like me to address or questions you would like answered. Anything from recipes, health tips, healthy swaps/alternatives, nutrition advice, meal prep/planning, healthy snacks, restaurant reviews, goal setting, reaching and maintaining your goals, your relationship with food and your body and making healthy living a lifestyle. I would love to connect.
P.s. Whenever you feel like quitting, think about why you started.
In health and happiness,
