Hailing from the spiritual mecca of Sedona, Arizona, Danielle came to New York City as a chemistry collegiate. Supporting herself through school as an actress and model, she suffered from a dysfunctional cycle of body image issues and uncomfortable weight fluctuations from yo-yo dieting, leaving her dissatisfied with her own body. Danielle thought the key to health and happiness was tracking calories and cutting carbs to lose pounds. After studying a pre-medicine track, she realized that medicine couldn’t heal her issues with food. A desire to learn more about using food as medicine led her to study at the renowned Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN), in order to leverage the power of food as medicine. After graduating from the program and learning to transform her own relationship to her body and food, Danielle combined her personal experience with her nutrition expertise to create a philosophy that has helped thousands of individuals change their lives through the healing powers of food.
DuBoise and Tingle have been honored in Forbes' 30 under 30, MindBodyGreen's 100 Women in Wellness and Oprah's SuperSoul 100. Their debut cookbook, Eat Clean Play Dirty, debuted in 2019, teaches readers to make signature Sakara dishes in their own kitchens.
In this episode, Michael and Danielle discuss the pros and cons of intermittent fasting, the key to having a healthy your relationship with food, and how to use your “why” to say “no.”
