Hi, I’m Meghan Telpner and thank you so much for taking an interest in the Academy of Culinary Nutrition and, specifically, this FREE From Scratch Training.

My Health Journey

My passion for culinary nutrition began in 2006 after successfully healing myself of an auto-immune disease that I was told was incurable. I worked to get myself well, then went on to earn my certification as a holistic nutritionist. I took it beyond my formal studies, cultivating an understanding of the food we eat and the effect it has on our physical and emotional health. Specifically, I explored the impact of happiness on our health and how our connection to food influences our connection to ourselves, each other and the planet.

Two Time Best-Selling Author

I have been working in the field of nutrition for over a decade and have written two best-selling, award-winning books, UnDiet (2013) and The UnDiet Cookbook (2015).

Culinary Nutrition Educator

After teaching cooking classes in Toronto for four years, in 2014 I founded the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, where I took everything I was teaching in person, and offered it online.

A Global Community

Since its inception, the Academy of Culinary Nutrition has had over 3,000 students pass through our virtual halls and go on to become Certified Culinary Nutrition Experts.
