More energy and a healthy natural weight with keto and the low carb lifestyle

Hi, I’m Julie, author of bestsellers Het Keto Plan and Keto in 15 Minuten, host of the Perfectly Imperfect podcast, co-founder of vegan and keto product line ALL GOOD, and plant-powered chef with a passion for healthy wholesome cooking that makes you feel your best.

Driven by my personal search for optimal health and high energy, I want to introduce you to the low carb lifestyle and my Food Freedom method: thé way to turn your body into a natural fat-burner and have more energy, strengthen your immune system, and reach a healthy weight for your body type.

Easy Vegan with Julie

More than 10 years ago while studying to become a professional journalist and translator-interpreter, I was diagnosed with Epstein-Barr (chronic glandular fever). Since no doctor seemed to be able to help me, I decided to take my health in my own hands and look for a natural solution to heal my digestion and regain my energy.

It was during this search for optimal health that I discovered raw & vegan food. After experimenting with smoothies, green juices and salads for a few weeks, I started to see incredible changes in my energy, weight and overall health. 

The effects on my body and mind were so surprising that I decided to travel to California in order to learn more about raw & vegan cooking. Together with my partner Simon, I enrolled at the Living Light Culinary Institute where we learned all about raw food cooking techniques, flavor balancing and the science of plant-based nutrition.

That's when I started Julie’s Lifestyle as a blog to share my experiences and my love for healthy & delicious food.


Back in Belgium, Simon and I started a small business offering vegan culinary workshops and raw food catering.

After co-founding and working as the head chefs at the high-end raw food restaurant Essence Cuisine in 2014, we decided to change courses and pioneer Belgium’s first vegan and low carb product line ALL GOOD. Since there were almost no snacks available in Belgian supermarkets that were healthy ánd delicious, we decided to create them ourselves. :)

With ALL GOOD, it is our mission to offer tasty and convenient plant-based snacks that will help you to feel more energized, beat sugar cravings, feel more satisfied, and support your fat-burning metabolism.

After launching ALL GOOD, I started working on my first cookbook to share my story and recipes with a wider audience. Shortly after its publication in Belgium in 2015, Julie Natuurlijk was translated as Vegan & Raw. My second cookbook Easy Vegan met Julie (available in English as Vegan & Raw 2) quickly followed. I feel incredibly happy and grateful that we had the opportunity to present both books in New York and Los Angeles.

The keto & low carb LIFESTYLE

Fast forward: after 6 years on a low fat high carb plant-based diet, my body started to give me signs that it needed more. I had strong cravings for sweet treats, I never felt satisfied after a meal and I got ‘hangry’ if I didn’t eat any snacks in between meals. My energy levels dropped because of an Epstein-Barr flare-up and I started experiencing digestive issues such as bloating, gas and constipation whenever I had legumes and grains – ingredients that are very common in vegan cooking. Lab tests showed that my hormones were out of balance and that my gut lining was very weak, making it difficult for my body to absorb vitamins and minerals.

My doctor advised me to re-introduce small amounts of animal protein into my diet. Not an easy decision to make after ten years of plant-based eating and two Vegan & Raw cookbooks, but a necessary one if I were ever to heal my hormonal imbalance and digestive issues. Vegetables still play the leading role in my current diet, with plenty of healthy fats (like avocado, extra virgin coconut oil and organic grass-fed butter) and small amounts of organic free-range poultry, wild fish and homegrown eggs for protein.

The idea of keto is simple. If you limit your carbohydrate intake and get most of your calories from healthy fats, your body will switch to burning fat for fuel instead of glucose (sugar). This puts your body into a state of ‘ketosis’, meaning your liver produces ketones for energy. You basically turn your body into a natural fat burner.

Eating more healthy fats and moving away from a strict vegan diet has helped me immensely to balance my hormones, improve my sleep quality, heal my gut and overcome candida. It has also helped me to keep my blood sugar level stable, feel more satisfied and beat food cravings once and for all.
