Thanks for stopping by Tea, a Drink with Jam & Bread! I’m Sheila–aspiring food blogger by day, law student by night. I started this blog because I love food. Loooove it.

I’ve long been a vegetarian, and I somehow got through college eating only veggie burgers, canned beans, and ketchup. My longing to eat yummy food (built up over years of stalking other food blogs), combined with my hope of saving money on expensive processed foods, led me to finally try my own hand at cooking.

While I find myself flailing in the kitchen periodically, I’m slowly learning through trial and error. Most importantly for my own growth, I’m learning to approach healthy eating by looking beyond just counting calories, and I’m developing a better understanding of the nutritional, social and environmental impacts of my own food choices.

Through this blog, I hope to share a mix of healthy and indulgent vegetarian and vegan recipes, and inspire you to step into your own kitchen.

Oh, and you’ll also be seeing a lot of coconut around these parts.

And maybe, like, some actual vegetables too.
