Backstory Behind Stephanie and Guest

I met Meredith for the first time on this show. I knew I would like her by the company she keeps. Her husband founded a brand called Joyful Activist, which is exactly what it sounds like; opportunities to do good work that bring joy to the volunteer and receiver of work. If Meredith puts in even a 1/4 of her warmth and joy into her cooking and recipes then her cookbook is a must have!!!  Her love for exposing people to mindful food practices is authentic and inspiring. – Stephanie Michele
