Hi there! My name is Sheil and I am an internal medicine resident physician, artist, and cook. I live and work in the Chicagoland area, and I am passionate about plant-based nutrition and its applications to clinical medicine. I am the creator, recipe developer, and food photographer of @plantbasedartist on Instagram with over 50,000 followers. I am also a current contributor at Best of Vegan, a digital culinary publication dedicated to veganism and plant cuisine. Although I love exploring new cultures through their foods, my culinary experience lies in South Asian and East Asian cuisines including the regional “thali” tradition of Gujarat, India.
