"Meeting with Danielle was truly transformational. I went to see her because I wanted to slowly transition into a more plant-based diet. Not only did I get specific ideas and recommendations for that, but more importantly I gained a deep sense of empowerment. Our relationship with food, or at least mine, is very intertwined with my self worth and I used to experience a lot of shame for not always making the right choices. Danielle's approach is really focused on the small steps you can take to have a healthier diet and lifestyle. Now I literally hear her kind and encouraging voice in my head supporting me and helping me do my best even if it's only drinking a proper amount of water that day. No more shame is involved and instead my relationship with food is filled with possibilities of improving it one meal at a time in a mindful way. Thank you Danielle!"
"I initially came to Danielle because I was looking for a more holistic approach to health and nutrition. I had been suffering from severe digestion issues and overall health issues for a while, and the advice and treatment suggested by standard doctors wasn't working at all. I had also been trying to switch to a plant based diet and hadn't been able to find the combination of foods that suited me. Put all that together and Danielle seemed like the perfect choice. Right from our first session, it was clear how things would go with her. She was extremely knowledgeable and genuinely listened to my situation. By the end of the first session, she had cleared out many misconceptions I had about the kinds of foods that were good for me and had drawn up a precise plan of action for the next 3 months. The first session on it's own was incredibly helpful and solved many of my problems. However, my time working with Danielle was more than just nutritional advice. Her view was to look at nutrition as just one of the many aspects of health, and that the key to being healthy was looking at day to day life as a whole. This included looking at personal relationships, job environment and just overall mentality. At the time, I was stuck in a job which clearly was doing more harm to me than good but for various reasons, I felt I didn't have a choice but to go through that. Danielle was convinced that this was influencing my health and regularly worked out coping methods as well as genuine guidance on how to process the whole situation mentally. She was incredibly easy to talk to and get very sound advice from. While there was short term improvement, the real results come after a few months of implementation. I'm happy to say that after my 3 month program with Danielle, and a few more months of continuing what we worked at, I'm now completely free of all the health and digestive issues I had in the past and I'm on a career path much more suited to me. Could not be happier with her!"
"Danielle has helped me in more ways than I can count! Her approach to food, nutrition, and wellness is so incredibly well rounded and unique. She has helped me transition as a vegetarian to a more plant-based lifestyle by encouraging me and helping me form good habits and by helping me loosen the ties to the bad ones. After having tried for years to break my bad eating habits and failing, the guidance I have received from Danielle with her constant support has been the first thing to allow me to see change. For years, I knew that I was doing many things wrong nutritionally, but I could never make any lifestyle changes successfully because I would always move too fast to reach my goals. It has been an absolutely incredible, eye-opening journey working with Danielle. She has taught me patience and self-love, all through food and nutrition, and I am so glad to still be working with her!"

“To best convey my appreciation of the high quality and effectiveness of your services, a few words come to mind: knowledgeable, enthusiastic, pragmatic, caring, listening, professional, tailored fit tools, programs and objectives.”
"It has been a pleasure to work with Danielle for the past few months. I reached a point, where I would wake up most mornings regretting what and how I had eaten the day before. I had the "tomorrow" mentality. Tomorrow I would make some changes and eat better. I slipped into the trap of regularly eating fast 'food', to squeeze a meal into a busy schedule - ultimately leading to some negative health consequences. Danielle shared her knowledge about nutrition, food and lifestyle choices. Meal ideas and recipes were provided, and customized to make GREAT meals. Within 2-3 weeks of making some significant changes in how I prepared food, and ate, I was surprised to see cravings for sugar and fast food completely disappear. It actually seemed like the food I was now eating had such different flavors, compared to what I had experienced before. I am sleeping great, feeling more energized, and love making healthier meals for myself and my family. Thanks Danielle!"

“Danielle is a star! A few months after my diagnosis of a blood cancer, I sought out her advice and guidance to optimize my vegetarian diet and transform it into a healing regime. Danielle’s enthusiasm is infectious! She was a role model from the very start, being so fit and healthy herself, was patient and without judgement. I was inspired by her approach as she prepared my nutritional programme, provided delicious recipes to simplify my cooking and set me on a course that I could manage and am now maintaining with ease. I have recommended Danielle to friends with confidence knowing she will inspire others to enjoy a healthier lifestyle through her coaching practice.”
"I started working with Danielle when I was sorting out my IBS. I was prescribed an intense diet, and needed some help with my new way of life. The support that I received was incredible -not only did I get information about nutrition, but we also worked out lifestyle changes and planned new habits to make the whole shift realistic. Danielle was available, knowledgeable, and very encouraging. She supplies meal plans, shopping lists, and practical tools that I still use every day. I am now totally cured of my digestive problems, and don't think I could have done it without her help. Would highly recommend!."
"Danielle inspired some real changes in my life, like planning and preparing healthy snacks ahead of time, involving my family members in food preperation, and making nutrition a priority. She is full of practical knowledge, and is passionate about food! Her enthusiasm is contagious, and inspiring. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for ways to move to a more plant-based diet, and a healthy lifestyle."
"I went into this not knowing much, or anything really, about holistic nutrition and with the sole purpose of losing weight. I have to say, Danielle opened my eyes to a whole world of possibilities and has become a real role model for me. After working closely with her for 6 months, I’m at a place in my life I could have never imagined being. She has so much passion for what she does and it really translates in how she works with people. Her “joie de vivre” is contagious and I’d say anyone would be lucky to meet her, let alone work with her."

“My experience with Danielle Levy has been an amazing journey of discovery, not only of healthy eating but healthy living as a whole. Her positivity, encouragement and regular check-ins provide motivation and show her dedication to helping clients with whatever goals they may be trying to achieve. Her blog and detailed menu ideas are so helpful and continue inspiring and guiding me as I work towards a balanced, healthy and happy lifestyle. I am forever grateful for the advice and positive path Danielle has set me on!”

"Since working with Danielle, I have lost weight, and I feel less hungry in between meals. Instead of going out to restaurants several times a week, I now eat mostly homemade meals. While Tim Hortons muffins were a regular family breakfast, we now eat them only on occasion - just once a month. I am eating way more vegetables and legumes, and continue to experiment with new foods like tempeh, and farro. Overall, I've made lots of positive changes - and have experienced great results from Danielle's Diet & Lifestyle recommendations!."

"I found Danielle through a yoga teacher I once had. From the moment I met Danielle I felt inspired and energized to take charge of my health. I found myself to already be a healthy person both nutritionally and spiritually however I felt I just needed to fine tune some things. Danielle helped me to zero in on areas for improvement and focus my energy on what I wanted to accomplish and how to make it happen. I'm so glad I found Danielle, she has most definitely been a positive influence in my healthcare regime. Each time I leave an appointment with her I feel full of life, re-energized and refocused on my goals. I have her to thank for all of the positive changes I've made within the last couple of years and I will be forever grateful I crossed paths with her."
“After accessing Danielle’s services I have made major changes in my diet and have noticed a definite increase in my energy levels, as well as a decrease in pain and inflammation. As someone who suffers from chronic pain this is a huge deal! I have also invested more time into my daily and weekly meal planning and have discovered a lot of amazing vegan blogs and cookbooks. Danielle really makes nutritional information accessible and fun, and I would highly recommend her services!”

“Growing up, my family didn’t eat a lot of vegetables. Neither of my parents were very good cooks and the veggies we did eat were usually canned corn or frozen peas. So when I went vegan in my early 20’s I relied mostly on cookbooks to modify my diet, which unbeknownst to me promoted very carb-heavy lifestyle. As the years progressed, I gained more and more weight and not sure of why. I thought that vegan = healthy and slim. Every time I looked up healthy eating and weight loss on the internet, I became confused and overwhelmed. I was relying on calorie counting apps that made me hungry and dizzy and meal plans I couldn’t stick to. That’s when I decided I needed professional advice! I googled vegan nutritionist and Danielle’s name popped up right away. I loved her website and blog and decided to meet with her. After taking one look at what I ate she said that I had been eating vegan, but now she would help me eat more plant-based. Danielle enthusiastically and energetically relayed lots of information that I had been searching for. She provided me with meal plans and recipes to help me get going, suggesting helpful kitchen gadgets I had never heard of! She gave me guidelines and tools that helped me move beyond rigidly following a meal plan and helped me be more creative and diverse in my eating habits. She helped me every step of the way, making sure I was never hungry and tweaking the plan so it suited my needs and took into account my work and school schedule. Not only did Danielle help me reach my goal of getting back down to a size medium, and increasing my energy, she provided me with stress-management tools and promoted positive psychology. I am forever grateful for the tools Danielle has provided me with to carry out proper eating for life!”
“Our family has made some amazing changes, and Danielle’s workshop really helped me realize where I was going wrong. We now have fresh fruit and veggie juices everyday, which has really helped to up our veggie intake. My toddler loves all sorts of new recipes I’ve been trying and I’ve noticed my husband’s skin looks glowing! I feel less stressed knowing that everything in my fridge is nutritious and I don’t really feel guilty at all anymore, which is great.”
M. SollecitoNutrition Student
"At the beginning of the year, I was really struggling with my weight, energy, and health. I had been transitioning toward a plant-based diet, however my weight was piling on, and my energy was low. Completely opposite of how I was suppose to feel on this lifestyle right? I had been following Danielle's Facebook and Instagram accounts, until one day I decided I no longer wanted to be inspired by her through a computer screen - but wanted to meet her, learn from her, and to be inspired by her, in person. I remember meeting Danielle for the first think and thinking to myself, "why didn't I come to her sooner!?". I cannot explain how much she's helped me in three short months, with tons of recommendations, recipes, inspiration, kind words, and positivity. Through following her recommendations, I managed to finally understand what a true plant-based diet looks like. I learned to cook better, and use my imagination in the kitchen too! Thank you Danielle."
“Danielle’s consultations were the best way to start the New Year. After adopting her nutrition and meal planning tips and by being more conscious of what, when and why I was eating, I noticed a drastic surge of energy and change in how I felt that were so uplifting that I never wanted to go back to my old eating habits. Danielle’s approach (which includes amazing recipes, a tremendous amount of support, relevant information) completely reframed the way I approach and feel about food and I can’t thank her enough for that!”
“It is an absolute pleasure working with Danielle. Her infectious positive energy gives you something to aspire to. You can see right away that this is clearly a person who practices what she teaches. And if her personal energy isn’t enough of a testament to her skills, her very thorough analysis of your needs should be. I was taken aback at how in depth and well rounded her initial consultation was – from her initial survey, to how well she was prepared, to the completeness of her analysis and her follow-up. Her blog has become a regular resource and I’ve been very happy incorporating several of the recipes she’s posted into my regular meal plans. Danielle is clearly a dedicated professional who takes care to see the whole picture.”

“When you’re in survival mode, being able to nourish your body in other ways is unthinkable. Danielle’s integrative holistic 3-month program made me a stronger being, by allowing me to reach into another level of my pyramid. My relationship to food completely changed. Nutrition has always been one of the biggest struggles in my life, I’ve tried every lifestyle, from Vegan all the way to Paleo…You name it I gave it a go. Danielle’s was the only one that taught me a balanced eating structure. It’s not only about the food you eat, it’s how you feed yourself. I’m a yoga teacher, a spin teacher and a Pilates teacher my day is filled with running from appointment to appointment. I eat really well, but I never have time to eat. Danielle’s program changed that for me. Through her program, I learnt, my relationship with food is reflective of my relationship to life, and if I wasn’t well fed how could I be strong enough to teach, learn and move without causing stress to my own body. Food preparation was the missing link in the love that I felt for myself. We all work on our appearance our inner selves, but who thought food prep integration contributed to that. Working with Danielle, made me realize food is one of the main catalysts to our inner being. It drives one of the most important relationships. When we are properly fed, we feel stronger, we can be more efficient in our days, with so much more time to concentrate on other important tasks, to climb up our pyramid. Danielle teaches you how to prepare your week, integrate food into your day and makes sure you feel supported along the way. Our body is a well oiled mission if we don’t keep putting fuel in it, with what and how do we run? With this 3-month program we can change our habits and our relationship with food, because we literally are what we eat, we can transform our bodies and minds by choosing to create an optimal food plan for ourselves. I recommend it to anyone! The stronger you feel, the stronger you become! Let this 3-month program be the catalyst in your life. I feel Nourished!!”
“I am so grateful to have met and worked with Danielle Levy. Danielle is more than just a nutrition practitioner; she helped me to improve all facets of my life. I came to her with a bevy of food and body issues, expecting to be put on a diet and given a prescription for exercise, but instead Danielle wanted to know what was going on behind the scenes, what was at the core of my problems. I really felt that she took the time to get to know me, and she was compassionate and supportive throughout every step. I had been recovering from an eating disorder and I was suffering from very severe acne. In short, my system was totally out of whack. Danielle talked to me about my work and stress levels, and she encouraged me to go back to yoga and to engage in more self-care activities. She also educated me about a whole foods, plant-based diet, and gave me some of the most delicious recipes I’ve ever tried. Danielle acted as my very own personal cheerleader, guiding and encouraging me as I progressed with all my lifestyle changes. I really appreciated that her maxim is “Progress, Not Perfection,” because it allowed me to take some of the pressure off. I was able to heal at my own pace, and as I result, my transformation occurred rather quickly and fluidly. Danielle’s holistic approach to wellness was exactly the education I needed in order to be able to get myself back on track. In the three months that we worked together, I managed to completely clear up my acne (to the point where people are complimenting me on my glowing skin), establish a healthy relationship with food, and make a big life change with regards to my career. I know my journey’s just begun, but Danielle was instrumental in getting me on this path to wellness and self-actualization. I highly recommend Danielle Levy to anyone who’s ready to commit to getting healthy, but might just need a little help along the way.”
“Danielle Levy is a nutrition practitioner like no other. She is not there to tell you you are wrong and unhealthy and make you feel guilty about your eating habits and your lifestyle, rather she just opens your eyes up to the possibilities of a healthy lifestyle and how simple it can be. She teaches you how to cook your own delicious food, shop for the right groceries, and make sure you know how to manage yourself. She makes sure you don’t feel guilty or get stressed over a daily activity that we should love – eating food! I came to her sick and unhappy with my eating and after talking to her for two minutes, her positive attitude and loving approach motivated me to pick myself up and start my journey to a happier healthier life. She is not only a nutritionist but a guide and a friend.”
“I liked that Danielle checked in with me a lot, and consistently had new recipes to try on both your blog and in her emails. I thought her positivity was incredibly helpful. She focused on things I was already doing right rather than just focusing on what I need to change, which I was grateful for and seems like it will lead to more sustainable results. Also when I slipped and had foods that aren’t good for me, her attitude of ‘tomorrow is another day’ made it easier to stick to healthy eating rather than slipping back into grilled cheese sandwiches as a staple food.”
“Although I’ve been a vegetarian for fifteen years, I never felt that I was good at it so moving towards a plant based diet was scary because I thought I would have even fewer options. I wanted to do this right, so upon a recommendation I decided to set up a meeting with Danielle. I can honestly say that this was the best thing I have ever done for my health. Danielle created a meal plan that was both delicious and perfectly suited for my on-the-go lifestyle. She gave me many resources that made the transition to a plant based diet easy and was always available to answer my questions and offer me support and encouragement. Thanks to Danielle, I now eat better than I ever did and have all the tools to continue living a healthy life.”

“After having several ongoing concerns with my skin, digestion and sleep, I was in an endless cycle of prescription medication that just seemed to lead to more problems. Danielle helped me realize that most of my issues are connected and have to be resolved at the root rather than just treating the symptoms all the time. My issues have noticeably improved since I started taking her suggestions, including my stress level. I really felt like she listened to me and took everything I said into consideration. Her menu plan offered easy recipes that work well with my busy schedule, and she followed up with many suggestions of new things to try. Her extensive knowledge and optimism encourage me to maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep a positive relationship with food.”
“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Danielle. Her passion and enthusiasm for a healthy life is contagious. Thanks to Danielle I have learned the skills necessary to execute and enjoy making and eating delicious nutritious food.”
“Thank you again for the advice you gave me, my health improved dramatically. When you said that I would eventually have more energy, I must admit that I was sceptical, because my levels were so low. Three months later, I’m sleeping properly and my hormones aren’t as wild and I do feel more energized!.”

“Danielle m’a donné des conseils précieux sur la façon de m’alimenter. Je connaissais tous les principes de base d’une bonne nutrition mais Danielle a surpassé mes connaissances et mes attentes. Elle m’a montré comment intégrer de façon savoureuse le tofu, le tempeh et le quinoa dans mon alimentation quotidienne. Nous avons cuisiné ensemble dans ma cuisine. Ça été tellement agréable. Danielle est très enjouée et stimulante. Elle cuisine efficacement et ses recettes sont fabuleuse; très faciles et très goûteuses! Je vous recommande fortement de consulter Danielle, elle est non seulement une nutritionniste hors-pair mais aussi une personne formidable. Vous allez tout de suite l’aimer!”
K. SpillaneMcGill Student Well-Being Committee
“The McGill Student Well-Being Committee was thrilled with the excellent workshop Danielle gave us at the Faculty of Law. Her presentation was informative, interactive AND delicious! Everyone loved the energy bars that she made, and I think we all left inspired to begin changing our lives in small but meaningful ways.”
"Becoming a vegetarian was something I've wanted to do for a long time, but I had little support from my family, as they worried I would lose more weight. I decided to seek outside help to learn how to live this new lifestyle, and what I found was so much more. Danielle has given me real and positive advice to help my specific needs. Not only have I managed to lead a healthy sustainable lifestyle, through the development of a plant-based diet, but I've also managed to gain weight, all through her recommendations. The wonderful thing about knowing someone like Danielle, is that you always have someone who will support your lifestyle and encourage you to keep going, and even if results aren't necessarily fast, they will come!."
B. NguyenNurse | Triathlete
"I first saw Danielle speak at the Montreal Vegan Festival in 2015. Her positive energy and enthusiasm about whole food, plant-based nutrition caught my attention. As a triathlete, I was trying to find a healthy way to get extra energy, and was tired of the processed gels, protein powders and bars that had ingredients I couldn't pronounce - and didn't affectively sustain my energy. My other issue was finding a healthy way to gain weight, and I needed help figuring it out - so I committed to Danielle's 3-month program. In the first month, I learned all the basics on whole food nutrition, and received a customized diet and lifestyle plan. Now, I am very happy with my progress! I have increased energy levels, and noticed significant improvement in my training and triathlons. I have gained some muscle weight, and become stronger overall!."
B. Lebel-BournivalAthlete | Personal Trainer
"Danielle guided me through food organization, with simple tips and cues. Being an athlete, her plan helped me raise my energy levels, to get through my 10-12 hours of weekly workouts, and competition cycles. I had the discipline to reach my goal, but I definitely needed Danielle's personalized guidance to achieve it. I strongly recommend her service!".
