Who is Tess Begg?

Tess Begg is an Australian fitness and food vlogger who is active on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok and other social platforms. She was born on 10th October 1997, in Gold Coast, Australia. She is known for posting fitness-related and vegan content on her social media.

Background of Tess Begg

Tess grew up in Gold Coast alongside her family and fell in love with the town. Eventually, her family decided to move to Sydney because of better job opportunities for her parents. Tess was always a creative child who liked to draw, pick flowers and act. When she was just 13 years old, she started to care about her food, specifically what was in it. In her hometown, there weren’t many vegetarian or vegan restaurants, so Tess never questioned her diet. But once she moved to Sydney, she figured out that many young people refused to eat meat products.

How did Tess Begg become vegan?

Once she found out about the horrors that happened to poor animals, Tess knew that she couldn’t live the same way anymore. She did her research and started to prepare her own vegetarian food. But it still wasn’t enough. Her initial thought was to save animals by not eating meat products. But once she digs deeper, she found out that the dairy and egg industry is just as cruel. At the end of 2013, she came across an internet vegan challenge that urged people to try eating only vegan food for a month. Tess took part in the challenge on January 1st 2014, and after successfully completing it, she never came back.

Tess created her Instagram account in 2012 but didn’t begin to post regularly until late 2014. She would often post photos of her aesthetic vegan meals and a few shots from the gym. As more people came across her account, Tess started to get several requests for her fitness routines and vegan recipes. Since she already fell in love with the creativity that social media provided for her, she created her self-titled YouTube channel in 2015. Her first video was Vlog Adventures And Quick Leg/Cardio Workout, with over 23 thousand views.

Tess’s channel is equally divided between workout plans and vegan food choices. She doesn’t force her vegan lifestyle on anyone. On the other hand, she tries to show people that eating meat and dairy-free food doesn’t have to be challenging or overly expensive. Tess often shares her own favourite recipes with instructions on how to make them. Her iconic recipes are for acai bowls, which Tess makes with a bunch of different ingredients. These bowls usually end up being the most colourful and exciting recipes on her channel. Since people seem to enjoy her recipes, Tess published Vegan Made Simple, which is a vegan cookbook. Tess’s book contained 130 completely plant-based recipes, including many gluten and oil-free ones. Since her first e-book was such a success, with people all over the world rating her recipes, Tess published another one. Her second cookbook is called Oh Sweet Vegan and includes even more healthy and yummy recipes.
