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 knowledge when it came to cooking, the most important part of healthy living. And so, the Academy of Culinary Nutrition was born!

What began as intimate cooking classes in my Toronto loft kitchen has grown into a community of more than 2,800 incredible people in over 73 countries. I would be thrilled to welcome you into this powerhouse community.


What Sets This Program Apart


We use food as the primary tool for our teaching. All of our classes take place in the kitchen where you will learn about food, health, culinary skills, and putting it all together where health begins- in our kitchens. Meghan teaches as she cooks and you are then guided into your kitchen to create culinary nutrition magic with weekly recipe assignments — both following recipes and creating your own.

📄 You Will Get A Professional Certification

The Culinary Nutrition Expert Program is the first and only program to offer this kind of training online with a certification seal to confirm your completion and comprehension of the program. You get a stamp of approval on your super skills!

🥗 You Get To Eat Your Homework

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 Culinary Nutrition Expert Program is practical in application so that the information sticks.

🧡 You Will Live What You Learn

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

✅ You Will Succeed

We have a 90% completion rate in this program as our students are guided along by their dedicated program coach. We lay out the full program curriculum up front and all of our students go through the program together for maximum community support and accountability resulting in an exceptional success rate in our program, and for our students who graduate and go on to apply what they have learned professionally.
