The Amazing Authors Tour 2015-2016 is presenting vegan chef, author and wellness coach, Tess Challis, at the Cortez Public Library Thursday, Nov. 12, 6 p.m.
Watch Challis demonstrate her culinary talents, learn a lot and sample some Thanksgiving delights.
Challis began her journey to better health in her late teens after experiencing numerous health ailments: acne, obesity, strep throat, anxiety and depression. Her newly discovered vegan diet, along with an ‘inner wellness regime’ of meditation and visualization, literally make a world of difference for her. In 1994 she began sharing this knowledge through cooking classes, catering, meditation classes and workshops. She has been a personal chef to many clients across the U.S.
Her first book, “Radiant Health, Inner Wealth,” a vegan cookbook and complete holistic health resource, is in its second edition. Her next book, “The Two-Week Wellness Solution: The Fast Track to Permanent Weight Loss and Vitality,” was released in June 2010. “Radiance 4 Life: The 4 Cornerstones of Ultimate Vitality,” was published in 2011.
The Amazing Authors Tour showcases writers from America’s Southwest as they travel to Colorado libraries in Bayfield, Cortez and Telluride.
