Change your life, health and career

The Nutrition Academy was created by Changing Habits founder and nutritionist Cyndi O’Meara to educate on the power and importance of good food for great health.


The philosophy we teach at The Nutrition Academy is like no other.

Our courses are built on a foundation of vitalistic philosophy. We consider not only the past and present nutritional trends that influence health and well-being, but also the greater systems we are part of, including our environment and lifestyle. We view the body as a whole, looking at the entire system and not just a collection of their parts — ultimately teaching our students how they work together in harmony to achieve a specific outcome or function.

The Introduction to Nutrition Course is a great starting place if you are new to Nutrition and are looking to break old habits and create a new healthier lifestyle centered-around our vitalistic philosophy. It is our basic, information-only course.


Whether you are a beginner or an established gardener, this comprehensive course will teach you the foundations of growing a thriving edible garden that doesn’t cost the earth. You’ll gain valuable tips and guidance from a very simple and accessible approach to permaculture design and gardening.
