Greetings, beautiful human!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m Tess and I’m an author, vegan chef, wellness coach, and mom.

My passion

is to help you re-discover how wonderful your life can be—both inside and out. I believe that we can all enjoy radiant health, well-being, and do so joyfully—while eating crave-worthy, delicious food!


Coaching & Workshops

I love working with my clients to help them achieve lasting change. Whether we work in person or via phone or Skype, it’s empowering, life-changing, and fun!


Here are a few of my favorite recipes – I hope you dig ‘em!

About Tess

I love food so much—a little too much. Thankfully, I’ve learned how to create yummy dishes that love me back (as opposed to my years of obesity and sickness). Here are a few other things you might like to know...

Be Radiant


My Be Radiant community helps women lose weight and gain health—in a way that creates empowerment and lasting change.


Did I mention that I love to eat? If you do too, check out some ways you can enjoy food with me!


I write too many cookbooks. I can’t stop. And I won’t stop.


I teach cooking classes, speak at events, and hold workshops (both online and in person). I also love to travel—so don’t hesitate to let me know if you have an event idea in your area!


I love hearing from you! If you have a request, suggestion, or comment, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
