In the video, Meredith walks us through her meal preparation schedule for her clients. She starts each day at 6:45 a.m. and ends by 10 p.m.

TikTokers are amazed by Meredith’s dedication to providing her clients with a luxurious home dining experience.

“Is this EVERY DAY?!” a TikToker commented.

“This is why people shouldn’t feel bad that they can’t work, take care of kids, and cook and clean [simultaneously] – this alone is a full-time job!” Another said.

Meredith also includes clips of how she gets ingredients for her delicious recipes. Although Meredith makes a quick grocery trip after serving lunch, viewers are more fascinated by the clips of her collecting fresh vegetables and herbs from her clients’ garden.

“That garden. That property. Damn. Your food looks amazing,” A TikTok user wrote.

“I WISH I had a garden,” another TikToker said.

While many commenters are raving about Meredith’s luxurious workday, other TikTokers find it amusing that Meredith starts her day by drinking a Diet Coke.

“The Diet Coke at 7:00 a.m. is unhinged, and I’m so here for it,” a TikTok user said.

Meredith also posted a follow-up video to answer some questions TikTokers had about her job.

“I have come here to set the record straight. Yes, I do get days off. That was my Saturday schedule,” Meredith explained. The vlog depicted Meredith’s typical weekend schedule for the summer; during the week, she goes back to New York City to rest, but she still spends time on developing new recipes and building her brand.

Meredith also used this video to defend her habit of drinking Diet Coke in the morning.

“Many of you guys are really pressed about the Diet Coke for breakfast. No. 1, relax. No. 2, I’m actually a Diet Dr. Pepper Girl,” she said.

“We LOVE an honest queen,” someone commented.

“I was laughing at all of the Diet Coke comments on that video. You posted all this gorgeous food and prep, and that’s what they chose to comment on,” another wrote.
