where healthy meets guilty

Hi Everyone,

My name is Julija Steponaviciute and I am the author of kitchenJulie. Thanks for stopping by!


I am currently working as a professional model (I have been modelling part-time since 2008 and it is my full-time occupation since 2012) around the world, though mostly Europe. Based in my home country Lithuania, I create content for kitchenJulie, cook, photograph and retouch all of my pictures when I'm not traveling. 

I'm not a vegan, neither a vegetarian, I believe that balance in everything is the key. You will find, however, that most of my recipes are vegetarian and many of them - plant based. Sometimes I will give a gluten free option in recipes that contain flour, so if you are gluten intolerant, you can still check out recipes such as muffins or pancakes. 

KitchenJulie is open for collaborations, most of which can be seen on my instagram profile. If you're interested in working with me, feel free to contact me via email or send me a message on instagram / facebook. I'd love to hear your thoughts.


I hope you will enjoy kitchenJulie's content and thanks again for stopping by!
