About Me

Welcome to Nosh! I’m Julie M. Tuttle. I have a passion for food, cooking, and making new recipes to share with all of you! Simple and Casual is my middle name. I love to make recipes easy and use everyday ingredients you don’t need to go to a fancy store for. My recipes are fun, easy, and not to mention delicious! I only post my favorites right here on this blog.  


I went 100% vegan in September of 2018  and this has inspired me to share my discoveries and experiences with going vegan to all of you! Thrive on a vegan diet with health and wellness that comes from nourishing your body with plant-based foods.



I grew up in colorful Colorado and still call it home. I love reading anything with fantasy, magic, quests, and dragons. Some hobbies include traveling and I love taking road trips! Yoga, hiking, painting, visiting art museums, libraries, and making new recipes also fill my spare time.



My passion is all about food, and helping you discover how simple a healthy vegan lifestyle can be! I fuel my desire to learn and cook and went back to school in 2014. Proud to say I graduated from Johnson and Wales University in Denver in 2016 and have a degree in Culinary Arts!

Over the past two years I have self-published two books:


My first cookbook, Nosh with Chef Julie: 50 Personal Recipes for the Everyday with 10 Ingredients or Less! was published December of 2017.



And my second book, Nosh with Chef Julie: Vegan Journal: Daily entries and tips for going vegan from the beginning with self-care, food logs, and reflections. was recently published and is to inspire new vegans on the path to a healthy, plant-based lifestyle.


This blog is all about having fun living and cooking vegan with easy and simple recipes to try out and share. Search through the categories for  inspiration, check out my veganism page for tips and advice for new vegans, browse through the recipe archives, and nosh to your heart’s content!
