Megan Ware, RDN, LD
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
Megan is a registered dietitian who knows that what you put in your body is what you get out. She’s been where you might be now– unhappy with her weight, uncomfortable and frustrated (see her before picture here). At the time, she thought she was eating healthy and was even running marathons but just couldn’t seem to get the scale to go down.
Learning how to fuel her body using the right types and amount of food paired with the the right type of workout regimen has made a world of difference for Megan and her mission is to share what she’s learned and experienced with as many people as possible. Megan’s goal is to teach people how to use real food to get real results and feel happy, healthy and comfortable in their own skin. No more diet pills, nasty frozen meals or cardboard-tasting meal replacement bars!
More about Megan W: She earned her bachelors of science degree in dietetics from The Ohio State University while working in the nutritional services department of an acute care facility and as a group fitness instructor for Ohio State. She completed her dietetic internship at Mount Carmel College of Nursing in Columbus, OH, then landed her first clinical dietitian position at Florida Hospital Orlando. It was there that Megan realized she wanted to start treating people with nutrition before they ended up in the hospital. She started Nutrition Awareness on the side in 2011 and in 2012, quit her full-time job to focus solely on the business. Megan loves the Orlando community and is working hard to make it a healthier place to live. She has given presentations at local businesses such as the Hyatt Regency, DPR Construction, Synergy Wealth Alliance, The Bar Method Winter Park and Dr. Phillips, Body20 Personal Training studio, the Orlando Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, as well as area churches and schools.
Media Experience: Megan has been quoted or featured in multiple online and print publications including Today’s Dietitian, Entrepreneur Magazine, US News & World Report, Shape, MyFitnessPal, Prevention, Huffington Post, The Orlando Sentinel, Orlando Magazine, Camp Business Magazine, WeWomen.com, YourWellness, NutritionJobs.com, TotalBeauty.com, SheKnows Health & Wellness, AVE Business, Examiner.com, Tom’s of Maine Good Matters Blog and more.
Megan regularly writes for the health news outlet Medical News Today and Today’s Dietitian Magazine. She has on-camera experience with Good Day Orlando, Ivanhoe Broadcast News, Univision, Healthline Media, Fox 6, and UCF Knightly News. She has been interviewed live on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Doctor Radio, WTLN’s Healthy Positive Living with Dr. Ahmad, 1520 WBZW, and WRVO’s Take Care Radio show and podcast.

Kait Richardson, RDN, LD
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
Kait found her passion for nutrition and healthy living as a student athlete in high school- the way food impacted her performance & mood fascinated her more than the actual game! Ever since, she knew she wanted to learn more about how nutrition affects the body and share with others to improve their physique, performance, and wellbeing with nutrition. Her life mission is to help people use food to improve their lives, not restrict it!
She graduated with her Bachelors Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Missouri State University and completed her Dietetic Internship while teaching group fitness classes and working at the campus recreation center. Her dietetic rotations emphasized her passions for public affairs, corporate & worksite wellness, weight loss counseling, and community health.
She accepted her first clinical position at Florida Hospital Orlando on a cardiac/pulmonary unit, where she spends much of her time helping patients optimize their nutrition and eating patterns with underlying heart and lung conditions. Her love for education and helping people see results motivated her to pursue a position with Nutrition Awareness so she could spend more time working one-on-one with people seeking to lose weight and transform their health with food! Nothing makes her happier than helping people achieve goals that positively impacts their health.
Outside of talking to clients about gut health and anti-inflammatory snacks, Kait enjoys yoga and lifting weights, exploring Orlando with her Australian Shepard names Grits, spending time wondering the Farmers Markets and recipe-testing in her kitchen with her friends & family.
If you are ready to achieve your nutrition, weight, and/or sports performance goals once and for all schedule an appointment with Kait! She’d love to meet you!
