Appreciate Food Logo

Food has so much to offer. Not only does it supply essential nutrients to our bodies, but it’s also integral to culture, connection, and joy.  Here at AppreciATE Food, we believe food is meant to be celebrated and enjoyed, and are passionate about sharing that message with others. We provide nutrition education through evidence-based resources and workshops in hopes of inspiring others to appreciate the nourishment and joy of food.

Meet our founder, Megan Lange

I started AppreciATE Food in 2019 simply out of a love of food. At the time I was a high school student who loved cooking and was curious about  the science behind food + nutrition. Since then, I’ve started a Bachelors degree in Nutrition and Food Science with a Dietetics Specialization, and this food blog has grown into a space where I share not only recipes, but also evidence-based nutrition resources and workshops.

I hope AppreciATE Food can inspire you in some way, whether it be to cook a food you’ve never tried, learn something new about nutrition, or simply to appreciate all that food has to offer!
