My name is Danielle Felip and I am a Holistic Nutritionist located in Toronto, Ontario and a graduate from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. I am available world wide for phone and Skype client appointments, corporate presentations, workshops and cooking demonstrations. I am also the Holistic Nutritionist at Yellow Brick Road Holistic Centre where I meet with clients in-person.
Motivating others to be happy and healthy is my passion, with a special interest in the areas of emotional wellness, mindfulness and compassionate living through a vegan lifestyle. I have personal experience with depression, anxiety and an eating disorder so I can understand the vast complexities of what we eat and how we feel. Coming from the corporate world, I know what it’s like to feel stressed out and unhappy. I know what it’s like to feel guilt and shame from emotional eating and poor body image. I also know what it’s like to change my life, get on track and shine!
I changed my life by changing my eating to a whole food, plant-based diet and learned to incorporate mindfulness practices into my daily routine. I aim to educate and inspire others to empower themselves to make conscious choices around what they eat and how they live.
Known for looking on the bright side of life, my personal mantra is “be the change”, it’s even tattooed on my arm as a reminder to myself and those around me. I approach health and wellness with compassion, understanding and a sense of humour.
When I’m not working, I can be found in yoga class practising my downward dog, in the kitchen creating simple and healthy (yet delicious) meals, hanging out with my pet rabbit, Thumper and laughing with friends.
