More about what I love & do

Vegan Reset®

Vegan Reset® is my plant-based food & lifestyle blog where I share recipes and all things going vegan, meal prepping, and wellbeing. I also have a corresponding cookbook, meal plans, and guides. It’s where I show you how to incorporate more plants, one step at a time and without ever feeling intimidated.

Best of Vegan®

Best of Vegan® is a culinary and lifestyle publication I founded in early 2014. It showcases the best plants have to offer and features chefs, bloggers, city guides, recipes, tutorials, and much more. It’s your number one resource for vegan cooking and vegan travel, decor, and style recommendations. The official Best of Vegan® Cookbook (published with HarperCollins) is now available too.

My Personal Blog

My personal blog is the place where I share the parts of my life that aren’t (always) linked to veganism. Join me on my travels, discover the books that have inspired me, and everything else in my day-to-day life. Note: this blog is currently on hiatus, but will be back very soon! In the meantime, you can follow me on instagram at @kimjuliehansen.

My Cookbooks

Best of Vegan

A versatile plant-based cookbook featuring over 100 recipes, including some of the most popular fare from the Best of Vegan community, exclusive dishes created with renowned international vegan authors and chefs, and a variety of staples for every occasion. This book includes both metric and imperial measurements.

Vegan Reset

A practical and easy-to-follow program, laid out day by day with meal plans, prep, shopping lists, recipes, and personal tips and inspiration. If you want to become a vegan and don’t know where to start, this is the ultimate guide. But it’s also invaluable for anyone (vegan or not) looking to kick-start healthier habits to cultivate a more balanced lifestyle. This book includes imperial measurements.

The 28-Day Vegan Plan

The U.K. version of the Vegan Reset Cookbook. Same book, different cover & metric instead of imperial measurements.
