Academy of Culinary Nutrition

As a happy graduate of the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, I wanted to share some information about this course led by Meghan Telpner, as well as my personal experience. I am absolutely over the moon with this program, and am so glad I stumbled across it. If you want to learn more about nutrition but have a full time job and can’t apply for a course that asks you to attend classes in person, this may just be the ideal course for you. It was for me. 🙂

At first I was a bit skeptical about enrolling in an online program that was organized in Canada with me living all the way in Barcelona, but I was so pleasantly surprised to see how responsive and supportive the faculty and staff were. The distance & time difference were never an issue at any point throughout the course.                                                                   Academy of Culinary NutritionOn to the specifics! So this course is about nutrition, healthy living and healing. It’s largely plant-based ( all the recipes you have to do have a vegan option ), and gluten-free. In the 9 modules that are released throughout a period of 3 months, you learn how to create a healing diet for yourself, your loved ones, and for future clients. Meghan teaches you how to organize your kitchen, how to plan and execute a weekly meal plan, how to create a healing diet for a specific condition ( for my assignments I picked type 2 diabetes ), and how to organize a workshop. The following modules are covered: culinary nutrition basics, fundamentals of nutrition, “plantiful” eating, fueling with whole foods, raw food foundations, liquid nutrition ( all about juices & smoothies ), healing elixirs and tonics, therapeutic foods, beauty and home cleaning products, and baking and sweet treats ( my favorite! ).

Even though I’ve been cooking and baking vegan food for a few years now, I can’t say that I’ve been paying much attention to healthy eating or what it really means to fuel your body with nourishing, gluten-free foods. Throughout the course of this program I learned a ton of new things, but I also got better at things that I was already familiar with.The absolute highlights for me were the raw food, elixirs and tonics modules. I was also very happy to see just how easy it is to make your own cleaning & beauty products. Fabulous stuff!                                                        The course really pushed me to be better at the things that I was already good at, and to discover new tricks that I can apply in my everyday cooking and baking. The Academy of Culinary Nutrition has reconfirmed my passion for food…I really couldn’t be happier with this experience. 

I would like to invite you to read more about the course & see if this is something you would like to pursue. In my opinion, anyone who loves food will love this program. ❤
