Making real, healthy habit change takes commitment. My approach is not about quick fixes, rigid restrictions, and unlasting short-term gains. It’s about making realistic, gradual, and sustainable lifestyle change – that works for YOU as an individual. I provide my clients with science-based nutritional information, customized lifestyle tools, and practical cooking tips – helping them transition successfully toward your health and wellness goals.
I practice from the premise that we are all unique, and that no one diet plan works for everyone. That is why I offer highly customized health programs, designed to meet your individual nutritional needs, health concerns, and lifestyle goals. Meeting people where they’re at, I offer highly personalized recommendations, and ongoing support – to help them successfully integrate healthy habits into their lives, in a focused, yet flexible (non-stressful) way!
I work closely with my clients, teaching them about whole food (aka real/unprocessed) plant-based nutrition, helping them transition toward healthy lifestyle habits. I consider all areas of their lives, providing personalized recommendations for physical activity, sleep, and stress management – as well as practical organizational and cooking tools. Empowering and supporting them toward optimal health and wellbeing. I offer two health programs; the first, Foundational Health Program, is ideal for people who are seeking information to get started and tools to equip them for their journey, and who intend to manage their progress on their own. The second, Complete 3-month Health Program, is an extended and highly personalized program – for those seeking ongoing customized guidance, and support, for long-lasting results.

What is a whole food, plant-based lifestyle?
A whole food plant-based approach is not the same as a vegan diet. However, people often think these terms and approaches are interchangeable – so I wanted to share my thoughts on the subject. ‘Plant-based’ means just that, a diet that emphasizes nutritious plant foods. There are no rigid specifications, regarding whether or not animal products are included. A vegan diet simply means no meat/dairy/eggs/fish is consumed. However, this does not necessarily equal a healthy diet – as it may be centered on processed, packaged products.
Specializing in plant-based nutrition, I encourage my clients, and the public – to enjoy a wide variety of whole (aka unprocessed) foods including: Vegetables, pseudo-grains, legumes, some whole soy foods, fruits, nuts and seeds (with allergies/sensitivities taken into account). These foods offer a diverse spectrum of essential nutrients – including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, plant protein, and heart-healthy fats. For individuals who choose to consume some animal products, I provide nutritional guidance on quality & quantity, helping them source the most nutritious and sustainable items. Psychologically, shifting the focus away from what we CAN’T eat, to what we CAN eat – also contributes to a healthier relationship with food. According to the science-based research, and my own experience in the field, a whole food plant-based approach can boost energy levels, aid digestion, support a healthy weight, help balance hormones, and help prevent diet and lifestyle-related diseases.

- Active listening to care-fully assessing their current diet and lifestyle by use of a health history form and 60 or 90 minute session where we talk about their habits and goals. By taking the time and care to help and support somebody in making diet and lifestyle changes, they will feel more positive and motivated to move forward and take action. Unfortunately, the current conventional system of health care offers little of this (time, consideration, respect) and often my clients report feeling disillusioned with the mainstream medical approach.
- Using the data collected from our session and the thorough Health History form and 3 Day Diet Diary they’ve filled out, I create specific recommendations to help them make improvements to their diet and lifestyle that will help them achieve their health goals.
- Finally, I serve people by offering nutritional, health and cooking education. I assess what knowledge a person already has using their Health History form, and then offer them as much relevant information and resources as I can without overwhelming. Explaining WHY a food is better than another gives people more incentive to choose healthier foods, helping them understand my diet recommendations and be more self-reliant in the future. Education is empowering and rather than simply dictating what to eat and what not to eat, holistic nutrition aims to expand peoples awareness around food in its affect on body & mind and connection to the environment, farm animals, and the world.
“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. Danielle really makes nutritional information accessible and fun, and I would highly recommend her services!”
"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!"
“Danielle is a star! A few months after my diagnosis of 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.”
“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!”
"I started working with Danielle for 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."
"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. 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!"
“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.”
“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.”
"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 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!."
“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.”
"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. 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!"
"From the moment I met Danielle I felt inspired and energized to take charge of my health. 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."
“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. Danielle’s program 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. 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. Danielle teaches you how to prepare your week, integrate food into your day and makes sure you feel supported along the way. 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!!”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
