The Culinary Nutrition Expert Program

The Fun Begins September 12th, 2019

Culinary Nutrition Career Inspiration

Interested in being certified in culinary nutrition? Or do you want a leading edge in the world of health coaches and wellness therapy?

This is an incredibly exciting time in our world. Truly, anything we can dream up we can make happen. You can start a business with little more than your laptop and an internet connection and suddenly you have access to the world!

And for this game-changing reason, career options become limited only by your own imagination.

Today is the day! Absolutely anything is possible.

What we strive to offer you in the Culinary Nutrition Expert program is applied nutrition skills that take nutrition out of the clinic or office setting and into the place where real change can happen: the kitchen.

If you are contemplating a career in nutrition, or already have a foundation and are looking to fill in the gaps by adding cooking, therapeutic nutrition, recipe creation, meal planning, workshop and cooking class hosting, or simply to be able to offer your clients better applied nutrition skills, then you are in the right place.

This program works for you whether you are looking to kickstart a new career in nutrition, take your current business to the next level or want to bring more applied culinary nutrition expertise into your current role.

  • Amanda Maguire

    I considered myself to be well-versed in plant-based, whole foods cooking going into the CNE program, so the biggest takeaways for me have probably been learning more about what I enjoy/don’t enjoy (the assignments really helped me to hone in on that), improving my nutritional knowledge (the more science-based aspect of food), and just generally building my confidence. I am a perfectionist by nature and in the past I found that I let wanting to be amazing at something on my first go hold me back from trying new things. The CNE program really solidified for me that “Today is the day!” and I should strive to put my best foot forward, learning as I go and giving life my all. This is invaluable, and I’m excited to see what I am capable of!

  • Brianne Le Grand

    The CNE program is amazing!I am a full time mom, wife, and part time teacher by trade and the CNE program has taken my life to the next level. The support from Meghan, her staff, and especially my teaching assistant was invaluable and helped me push myself through my comfort zone into the realm of possible awesomeness! It was a hard and busy course to complete but the assignments and recipes assignments were spaced out nicely and it was completely doable, even with a busy schedule. I actually feel like something is missing since I have had time off from the course and now take the time I spent on the course to build my business, test new recipes, and cook up some serious delishness for my family. Cheers!

    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.

  • Jennifer Camirand

    I was looking for a professional level program that would allow me to partner my skills as a nutritionist with my passion for whole food education.  Meghan delivered on all fronts. Do not be fooled by the fab, fun and fashion of this nutritionista – she means business. The Culinary Nutrition Expert Program is the real deal.  If you are not afraid of hard work and a challenge, throwing yourself out there, and living in the Eye of the Tiger for three short months, then this is the path for you.  I would walk this road again in heartbeat.
