    I went into this course thinking I would learn a few things about meal planning, and I came out knowing how to teach this to others in a meaningful way. I never thought I would be confident enough to start a business in this field, but now I have all the tools to do so! The professionalism and structure of this course blew me away, and it was worth every penny of my investment. The community created between Meghan’s team and the fellow CNE-ers was absolutely amazing. Not only did I gain the skills I needed, I now have an entire support system as well! I have never been more inspired!

  • Sam Kelly Sam Kelly

    The quality of the information provided, teaching methods, assignments and range of topics covered, far exceeded my expectations.  I learned exponentially more from this program than I ever did from any traditional college or continuing education courses. You get 1,000 times what you pay for. Meghan and her team offered an unparalleled level of support.  This course has helped me hone my skills, taught me more than I ever imagined, and helped me step outside my comfort zone to make my dreams of helping others a reality.  I’m proud to call myself an alumi!

  • Amanda Langan Amanda Langan

    This class truly surpassed my expectations. It was difficult and challenging at times, but that is to be expected in a class! I was challenged to create my own recipes, get outside my comfort zone and to experiment with different ingredients. Meghan and the team were always an email away, and my classmates really became a community, working through everything hand-in-hand.  This has to be one of the best decisions I have made to further my education.

  • Jennifer Camirand 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.

  • Laura Olson Laura Olson

    Meghan and her team helped take me from a solopreneur wannabe to the “real deal.” It was amazing to watch Meghan in action and apply that knowledge to my business. Each time I watch the videos, I pick up more info that helps me lead myself and my clients to better health.

  • Valerie Piccitto-sq Valerie Piccitto

    This course was one of the great decisions of my life – no doubt. I took this course primarily to further myself professionally but also on a personal level I really wanted to spend more time getting acquainted with my kitchen. As someone who owns their own business, goes to school part-time and has a family, that was a non-negotiable for me. This course exceeded my expectations times a thousand. I came out of this program as a far better version of myself. Thanks to the CNE program I’ve rebranded & restructured my small business and I’ll be offering holistic cooking classes/workshops to share everything I’ve learned.

  • Melanie Conolly Melanie Connolly

    The Culinary Nutrition Expert Program has more than exceeded my expectations. It’s been the best decision I have ever made. The level of support in the CNE program is amazing and Meghan and her team share so much of their knowledge and themselves in this program. This is a one-of-a-kind program. The friends that I have made in the CNE group have been amazing and we have grown and become a tribe/family in the past few months.  I’m so glad I listened to my intuition and jumped in with both feet, it truly was the best decision ever.

  • Jessica Duma-sq Jessica Duma

    To be in the presence of so much incredible knowledge, from Meghan, the TAs and my fellow CNEs made every day a learning experience. I had high expectations of what I would learn and the skills I would acquire during this course, and those expectations were exceeded in both depth and breadth. The incredible, supportive tribe that we have developed is amazing and definitely a permanent part of my life. I don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t taken this course, but I know it wouldn’t be nearly as colourful and fulfilling! Thank you!

  • Lisa McKenna Lisa McKenna

    The CNE program blew me away! I learned more than I ever could have imagined and met the most incredible group of women along the way. Enrolling was one of the best choices I have made for my personal health and for my business. This course changed the way I look at food, how I eat and how I feel. The best part is that this course fully prepared me to share this knowledge in a practical way to help others live healthy, happy lives.

  • Gisselle Perdomo Gisselle Perdomo

    I am incredibly happy that I followed my hunch and enrolled in this program. Meghan’s down-to-earth ways, good nature, charm, wits and her goofiness all made me feel like we had known each other all our lives. She makes learning fun and has an intense passion for helping others through sharing her knowledge and her experience. The quality and content of the program exceeded my expectations! Investing in this program was probably the most fulfilling, smartest decision I made in 2013! I will forever be grateful and hold Meghan, the TEAM and our TRIBE near and dear and close to my heart!

Meet Your Instructor

Why are you an awesome instructor?

My favourite way to spend my time is in the kitchen—creating recipes, learning about health and the healing powers of food, making a massive mess in my kitchen, and having a laugh in the process. When I realized this could actually be my job it was like the angels in their aprons, wooden spoons in hand, came out singing. I am an awesome teacher because I teach can jam pack info into fun, and humourous ways that make them easy to understand, visualize and apply.

What do you love most about the subject of your course?

The Culinary Nutrition Expert program covers it all. We go through the basics of nutrition in the Fundamentals Course and meal prep and kitchen organization in Meal Prep Made Easy. Then we get into specific areas of interest—key healing foods, specific dietary programs, and infused in all of that is the lifestyle component. I live everyday what I am teaching and forever teach on the edge of my knowledge. I love that this course has the set curriculum with the workshops, plus the addition of the live weekly classes so everything we’re learning is completely current and relevant to what’s happening in media, the world and perhaps even in our own lives. I love that my students get to choose the area they wish to specialize in and watch their passions be explored.

What is one thing you secretly wish everyone knew about you?

As a kid I used to put on my mom’s apron, pull a stool up to the spice rack, and mix potions of spices into a pot of water while chatting to my pretend television audience. When they say hindsight is 20/20 they’re not joking! So that and that I won a lot of gold medals in the late ’80s for my mad tap dancing skills. Kick-ball-change!

What is your desert island tool?

A self-sharpening vegetable peeler. I’d have a lot of time to kill I’d imagine and so I’d use the peeler to peel all the carrots and what not I’d be growing and then learn to do fancy origami salads. This would combine the triple threat of resourcefulness, creativity and presentation.
