Who is Marieke de Zwaan?

Marieke de Zwaan, born in 1976, grew up in a family closely connected to the agricultural world. She graduated from TU Delft in 2001 and subsequently worked as an architect for various multinationals. For ten years, she traveled the world with her husband and three sons, living in America, Australia, and Brazil. During her travels, by changing her diet, she transformed from a state of chronic illness (burn-out, migraine) to one of optimal vitality.

Marieke has completed various courses in nutrition, vitality, and systemic work. For over a decade now, she has been guiding people facing personal challenges. As a passionate keynote speaker, she has inspired thousands of people both domestically and internationally through her lectures and webinars to make more conscious dietary choices.

Her keynotes, however, also contain confronting and poignant insights that provoke thought, as Marieke de Zwaan aims to deeply impact her audience. This human aspect is, for her, the best way to emphasize the importance of healthy eating.

Vision

"Theory can give you a lot of knowledge, but to get to the essence, you must open your heart."

According to Marieke, nutrition is often approached in a very clinical way, viewed solely in terms of nutrients. However, food is much richer than that. A quote that resonates deeply with Marieke is, "Food is not rational. Food is culture, habit, craving, and identity." It's only when you pay attention to all aspects associated with food that it truly begins to work for you!
