Meet Filomena Vernace-Inserra, Registered Dietitian (RD)

Filomena has supported her clients in achieving their health goals for over 27 years.

After experiencing the devastating effects of Type 2 diabetes in her beloved grandmother, she became inspired to further understand the therapeutic relationship between food, diet and disease.

A graduate of the Nutritional Sciences program at Ryerson University (1993) and the Toronto General Hospital Internship Program (1994), Filomena has published two research articles in scientific journals that investigate adherence factors to calcium recommendations in women attending the Multidisciplinary Osteoporosis Program at Women’s College Hospital.

Her passion and commitment as a Registered Dietitian were further explored with clinical experience in the areas of Renal, Cardiology, Women’s Health, Breast Cancer and Osteoporosis.

After 11 years of full-time in-patient and out-patient hospital experience, Filomena went on to open her private practice where she now operates out of 3 offices located in Vaughan (main), Bolton and Toronto, Ontario, as well as through Virtual Nutrition Consulting sessions to best support the diverse needs and lifestyles of her clients.

As of today, Filomena has coached thousands of individuals, couples, students and public groups with a fun and easy-to-understand educational approach.

A dedicated mother of 2 teenagers, Filomena understands the struggles of balancing day-to-day life and strives to support the community in any way that she can. Recipient of the client-nominated Healthy & H.O.T. (Helping Others Too) Award in York Region, and contributor to the “Healthy School Committee” at a local elementary school of 800 students, Filomena is committed to teaching sustainable solutions and willingly accepts university and college nutrition students for mentorship opportunities.

From tailored nutrition coaching and educational workshops to curated recipe books and effective meal planning tools – Filomena is known for her warm personality, fluency in English and Italian, compassionate leadership and extensive knowledge in health and nutrition.

Filomena is a licensed Craving Change™ facilitator and a member in good standing with the College of Dietitians of Ontario and Dietitians of Canada professional groups including the Diabetes, Obesity, Cardiovascular, Sports Nutrition and Consulting Dietitians of Ontario Networks.

Nutrigenomix™ Genetic Testing

Nutrigenomics is a new scientific discipline that uses modern genomics technology to study the relationship between genes, nutrition and health.

To move this genetic research from the laboratory to the clinic, Nutrigenomix Inc. (a University of Toronto biotechnology startup) has empowered registered dietitians and their clients with comprehensive, reliable, genomic information using small, non-invasive saliva samples.

With a Nutrigenomix™ test kit, Filomena counsels her clients according to their unique genetic profile with the ultimate goal of improving your health through personalized nutrition. Contact >>

Most Canadian adults do not receive the recommended amount of magnesium, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin D, fibre and potassium from their everyday diets.


No gimmicks. No fads. No deprivation.

At Inner Health Nutrition Consulting, we take a “whole-istic” approach.

While fad diets never work long-term (and can be severely damaging to your health), Filomena encourages a balanced approach to healthy, portion-controlled meals using her “70+ Easy, Enjoyable & Nutritiously Energizing Recipes” E-Book, as well as her “Your Dietitian-Approved Grocery Shopping Guide”:


Filomena is Amazing! Her methods are sustainable and provide results at a healthy pace. The path she put me on is one that I can stick to for the rest of my life.
So happy I found Filomena 🙂

Alessandra Gallo

My journey with Filomena started about 10 years ago. She helped me have a better relationship with food and myself. She’s like a “food therapist” lol. Not only is she my nutritionist but she became my friend. Her space is a non judgemental, honest, a safe place. She makes you feel comfortable. There is no one else like her.
