About Us


Sarah Gouws

Registered Dietitian

“Food and nutrition have always been a big part of my life. I grew up in a family where cooking delicious meals was a real passion. I love the fact that healthy food can be tasty but also has the power to change people’s lives”. Sarah enjoys cooking and developing recipes that make the healthier choices easy to prepare and delicious to eat.

Sarah makes use of tools such as Nutrigenomics (genetic testing) and mindful eating principles during her consultations for sustainable behaviour change.

She is also a keen trail runner, qualified pilates instructor as well as a new mom – using this background in her holistic approach to health. Being a new mom has sparked a new found passion for childhood nutrition. She’ll be able to give you practical tips on how to wean your baby onto home-made, easy to prepare wholesome foods.

Nutrition is a wonderful tool to improve health, help manage and prevent illness. Sarah practices this in Kingsbury Hospital where she sees patients in ICU, medical and surgical wards.

Sarah has also written a number of magazine articles and appeared on TV.

Lize Stander

Registered Dietitian

Being a dietitian brought two of Lize’s passions together, people and food. Since starting work in private practice she has come to realize that health is more complex than often described. Both physical and mental aspects of health need to be acknowledged. Her focus area is on food relationship, mindfulness, health at every size and eating disorder recovery. Few things bring her as much joy as journeying with a client toward body acceptance and health. 

She is embarking on adding DNA analysis to her list of skills. 

Lize has appeared on a number of television broadcasts, radio interviews and regularly addresses corporates on health days. 

Outside of the office, Lize enjoys the outdoors, trying new restaurants, watching food and travel programmes and spending time with her husband, friends and family.
