Who is Sophia Roe?

After fibbing her way into the restaurant world, Sophia Roe has become a one-of-a-kind wellness advocate, and self-described food & feelings enthusiast.

Today, she helps folks build healthier relationships to food and themselves and we were incredibly excited to finally have her on our podcast. In this fun and passionate conversation Sophia generously shares her philosophy on food and principles for living better. She lays out the techniques and principles that anyone can use to become a better home cook and shares the lessons and takeaways she’s learned from teaching other people how to cook, including why when a food is about to go bad is actually when it’s the most flavorful.

We discuss the rise of cause-based brands, where she hopes to see the wellness industry go, and how she’d like people to better use the term “healthy” in the future. This episode is a delightfully positive and inspiring one that you will want to share with friends!
