Welcome and thank you for taking some time to get to know me.

My dream job, once upon a time, was to be the world’s most AwesomeTown fashion designer. Upon graduating with a fashion degree in 2003, I packed my bags and headed to Africa (And no, you’re not missing anything. A fashion degree and a desire to backpack through Africa pretty much have nothing to do with each other).

After experiencing some concerning digestive issues while travelling, I returned home and began a tour of doctors, while building a career in advertising. Three years and 19 doctors later, in 2006, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. I was told this disease was incurable- and committed right then to break the rules and live on my own terms- defying what convention was telling me, and decided it was time to question the paradigms of what health was all about, and with that began to look at life through a fuchsia coloured lens and there hatched my UnDiet my life.

Taking my health into my own hands, within one month I was symptom free and remain symptom free from a disease believed to be incurable. UnDieting is how I live and what I teach.

The way we live, think, and respond to the world impacts our personal health as much as how we feed ourselves.

My healing journey, which really began in 2006 was an education in life. I worked to get myself well, then went and got my formal training and certification as a holistic nutritionist. I took it beyond my formal studies, cultivating an understanding of the food we eat and the affect it has on our physical, and emotional health, specifcally the importance of happiness on our health. Our connection to food influences our connection to ourselves, each other and the planet.

about meghan

I began my current career as a nutritionist offering intimate cooking classes in my sweet Parkdale loft, which now serves as the Meghan Telpner Inc. headquarters. As demand for my classes grew, I began offering them online through video based courses. In September of 2013, we launched the world’s first Culinary Nutrition Expert Certification (CNE) program online. We are graduating amazing talent twice a year with students from around the globe. In the Spring of 2014, I built a brand new school- The Academy of Culinary Nutrition, home to the CNE program and a hub for learning about culinary nutrition, wellbeing, and business for health professionals.

I have been blessed with the honour of now teaching the teachers- helping to cultivate health leaders in their own communities.

All of this cooking, writing, teaching and cheerleading led me to write my first book UnDiet: Eat Your Way To Vibrant Health. Fitting as this is the theme of my life- to break the rules of convention and encourage people to do the same. The idea of UnDiet Revolution is catching on and an unbelievable tribe has formed. UnDiet hit #1 on Amazon’s bestseller list, #2 in the Globe and Mail and was named 2013 Best Health and Nutrition Book by Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.
