Hi! I’m Tessa.

Over the past year, my life has been turned upside down due to many health concerns. As of late, all concerns (well most) have been put to rest! Not placed on a single drug, food became my medicine. There’s not a doubt in my mind that I would be in a way worse situation had I not swapped the old cheesy enchilada for the new cheesy enchilada.

Now, my passion is to teach others about the never ending list of benefits that whole foods provide. As I constantly search to learn more and grow personally, my thoughts and ideas are bound to change over time. I hope you learn something by reading my blog and are inspired to make better life decisions along with me.

Thanks for reading Tessa’s Table!
