Hi there, I’m Kim-Julie!
PROCRASTINATING PERFECTIONIST, INTROVERT, GEMINI, vegan.
I’m the founder and creative director of the vegan food and lifestyle brands Best of Vegan and Vegan Reset, as well as the author of the books Vegan Reset: The 28-Day Plan to Kickstart Your Healthy Lifestyle, its U.K. counterpart The 28-Day Vegan Plan, and the upcoming Best of Vegan Cookbook (January 2023).
When I don’t cook, eat, photograph, or write about vegan food, you can usually find me in a bookstore, at a jazz bar, on a yoga mat, traveling, or at home, enjoying doing absolutely nothing.
Before going vegan (somewhat accidentally and overnight) in 2011, I was the furthest thing from a vegan you could possibly imagine. I LOVED meat, fish, eggs, cheese, and honey. That’s why I know how overwhelming it can seem to change your lifestyle and eating habits. On my Vegan Reset blog, I teach you how to do it one step at a time, with lots of delicious, quick and easy recipes.
Outside of veganism, I’m passionate about social justice, art, history, and my friends and family.
