As the granddaughter of famed author Ernest Hemingway, one might assume that today's guest simply had fame as her birthright. However, actress Mariel Hemingway established success in her own right at the age of 13 when she made her film debut in "Lipstick," and four years later, when her work in Woody Allen's critically acclaimed film "Manhattan" earned her an Oscar nomination. She has since made 30 films as well as numerous television appearances in both series and as host of various environmental and humanitarian documentaries.

At age 47, Mariel has become one of the most active celebrity voices in the area of healthy and sustainable living. As part of that role she leads wellness retreats all over America, where she shares her insights about movement, home, silence, and nutrition. 

In 2003, Mariel published her powerful bestselling memoir, Finding My Balance, the insightful and inspiring story of her life's journey as viewed through a lens honed by yoga and meditation. Her highly successful second book, Mariel Hemingway's Healthy Living from the Inside Out, is a how-to guide for finding and enhancing personal balance and health through the utilization of self-empowering lifestyle techniques. Her third and most recent book is entitled "Mariel's Kitchen: Simple Ingredients for a Delicious and Satisfying Life", in which she offers ways for active people to eat in a healthier and more sustainable fashion, and turn the kitchen into the heart of a home. 

Her latest exciting project is a Mariel's Kitchen… a company that will produce real food products with what a real life message! Mariel believes that caring for the health of the body, mind and spirit is the first step in becoming conscious of the health and well-being of the environment that surrounds us. Eating real food, grown organically and locally, may help us get more in touch with who we are and how we interact with our communities.
