About Meredith

Meredith has been an athlete her whole life, but always struggled to feel comfortable with her body and often felt like she was chasing body acceptance. She got into nutrition in college when she signed up for an elective beer brewing course. She assumed it would be an easy class to check off a general science requirement. Plot twist: It was hard. Fortunately, the challenging course, which was heavy on topics like biochemistry and food science, piqued her interest in the science behind how food (and, er, drink) affects the body. Who knew a beer brewing course would lead Meredith to land on pursuing a Master’s in Clinical Nutrition? Before joining the team at Culina Health, Meredith worked in graphic design and food media.

Nutrition philosophy in a nutshell: Food is fuel for your health and your soul. Nutrition shouldn’t feel like a battle between what you want and what you need — have what you want and add what you need. Understanding this balance and realizing what you want and what you need are the same thing is the key being at peace with your diet. Diets don’t work for everyone, but YOUR diet needs to work for YOU.

Nutrition myth or trend you find particularly annoying and would like to set the record straight: TikTok “health coaches” who walk around the grocery store and fear monger about very specific ingredients in healthy foods and tell you oats are bad for you. OATS!! eye roll. Trend: “What I Eat in a Day” on social media — ugh. Also, cleanses like juice cleanses or any “five-day” fix.
