I’m Julia, the voice and creator behind Savory Tooth. I currently live in California, which has been my home for the past 2 years.
I founded this website in 2015, and it became my full-time job in 2016. I started this site because I wanted to develop my interest in photography as well as document my foray into cooking. Savory Tooth quickly grew into a popular low carb site with hundreds of recipes and over 1 million people visiting each month.
My goal is to share recipes and resources for living a ketogenic lifestyle. I think adopting a lower carb way of eating is one of the best things we can do for ourselves. I’m a scientist by training, and reading peer-reviewed nutrition journals is what led me to keto.
I prioritize readers’ user experience by having an easy-to-navigate layout with few distractions. Ads are kept to a minimum, and there are no pop-ups or auto-playing videos. Recipe ingredients and instructions are at the top of every post, followed by photos and tips.
What I Do
I extensively test each recipe — sometimes more than 10 times — to make the dish as delicious as possible while minimizing the amount of carbs. I eat everything I make, and the food on this site represents my personal taste.
The rest of my time is spent on writing recipe posts, photography, promoting my recipes, answering website comments, and performing backend technical work to keep the website running smoothly. All of the content on this site is developed and written by me.
