What is the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program?

This is a complete and thorough professional certification program in culinary nutrition that offers practical, everyday, natural cooking skills as well as a deeper exploration into the therapeutic properties of the foods we eat and how we prepare them. This program serves to enhance prior professional training in natural health, or can serve as your introduction to it.

Meet The Founder

Hi, I'm Meghan Telpner and thank you so much for taking an interest in the Academy of Culinary Nutrition and specifically, the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program. I have been working in the field of nutrition since 2008, beginning my career in nutrition after healing my own incurable auto-immune disease. I went back to school to study nutrition but felt there was still a gap in my knowledge where it came to cooking, the most important part of healthy living.

What began as intimate cooking classes in my Toronto loft kitchen has grown into a global tribe of incredible people. If your interest is piqued and you'd like to learn more, there is loads more information for you here.



The cook of the home is the doctor of the home and you are definitely going to learn loads and loads about cooking, health, nutrition and vibrant living.

Whether you are a first time cook, or have a background in nutrition, we teach at a level suitable to everyone.

This program offers you a head start in your profession and will set you apart from those with similar training. You will also be taught how to be the teacher, the leader, and the go-to expert in your community.



The Culinary Nutrition Expert Program is the first program to offer this kind of training online and offer a certification seal to confirm your completion and comprehension of the program.

You get a stamp of approval on your mad skills!



Where else can you eat your homework? We learn in various ways and one of the best is when we learn something intellectually, and then immediately put it into practice.


The CNE curriculum is so practical in application that the information sticks.



With the integration of the program, you will be living what you’re learning and whether you are the type who loves the drastic change or small shifts, you will be amazed by your own personal transformation through the experience of this program.



"Meghan’s warmth and pure spirit shine through in everything she does. I took the class out of curiosity and ended up honing and building a whole set of skills that I never expected. Her ability to channel her passion into building a business that is honest, real and world-changing is both inspiring and exciting. I was honoured to be a part of this journey and to learn and build relationships on the way."

"The CNE program is the highest quality nutrition and whole life program out there! The huge amount of information packed into this course is well above any other. The support from Meghan and her team is unbelievable. Meghan’s teaching style, philosophy, and enthusiasm is incredible. I gained so much more than I had anticipated from the course, community and team at ACN. The community created is beyond amazing, so many people with the same goal, to change the world through this information. My life has changed in such an incredible way since joining the program, which has had a ripple effect to those all around me. I can’t say enough great things about Meghan, ACN or the CNE program. Truly life changing!"

I can’t wait to put all the amazing knowledge I gained into practice to grow my business and inspire others to live their best and healthiest life possible!"

I can’t say enough good things about Meghan and what she has created…so proud and grateful to be part of her amazing tribe!

I was very nervous about taking this course, as I was not sure if I would be able to meet all the deadlines; however, everything was so well organized and if I had questions, my program coach was always there to help. The program content was amazing. I was able to learn new cooking and baking techniques and gain insight into developing cooking classes and workshops. It brought me out of my comfort zone on more than one occasion, but I was so happy that it did! I learned so much. Meghan is such a great educator who always makes it fun and exciting to be in the kitchen!
     -Jessica Mitton, NEWFOUNDLAND, CANADA
I can happily say that the CNE Program was completely beyond my expectations. The content was very up to date, extremely generous and the team was amazing. They were very focused on our learning and giving us encouragement. The tuition was an investment, but totally worth every penny. I’m really satisfied and inspired. I’ve learned a lot and I hope that I can apply each and every pearl of wisdom, and spread this to my community to help everybody take control of their health.
