I just had to tell you how unique I think your book is! Every other book on food or holistic health seems to have something missing, but yours has it all. Not only are the recipes actually delicious and healthy, but you also include humor, the emotional aspects, and everything else I could want for radiant health as you say. I can tell you really know what you're talking about, because you've been there. It's so empowering to read, and I can't say enough about how much I love the book! ---Susan Purcell, Pagosa Springs, CO
I have a number of vegan cookbooks which mostly gather dust. Radiant Health, Inner Wealth on the other hand, is used all the time in my house. I've made a few of the recipes so many times now that I know them by heart! It's a fabulous book and an invaluable tool for either beginner or seasoned vegan cooks. The recipes are wholesome, healthy, and filling, using lots of fresh ingredients and only using unusual ingredients occasionally (and they are often optional). Whenever I'm feeling an illness coming on, I pull out Tess's book and whip up one of her nourishing soup recipes and see quick improvement. ---Kim Buettner, Denver, CO
I've been vegetarian for 12 years and unhealthy for the last few years. Thanks for helping me turn it all around. I'm happily vegan now, to stay! And as a bonus I've lost 25 lbs! Thanks for being you and sharing with us. I've bought other very famous vegan cookbooks and I will be surprised if I make more than 1 or 2 recipes from them. I have yours....and that is as good as it gets! That's really all I need until you come out with a new one. ---Tracy Riley, Greenwood, AR
About the Author

In 2008, Tess published the 1st edition of Radiant Health, Inner Wealth which was the culmination of knowledge from her many personal experiences and work as a chef and instructor.
