About Me – Tiffin and Tea
Hi All! I’m Safira. Welcome to my little place on the net.
Tiffin and Tea was born when we decided that we (me and the husband) wanted to eat better and reclaim our health. Everyday, i would pack a tiffin for my husband to take to work with him. In it was a variety of healthy foods/snacks that helped keep him far away from junk food. The other reason we loved the name was because i always associate a tiffin with travelling and that is something we both want to do a lot of. Oh and one more reason..we both LOVE tea. I prefer a simple english breakfast, whilst my husband has a 20 minute brewed ginger tea.
I am currently studying Naturopathy and Herbalism. I am very much in a transition phase with practicing wellness and am yet to fully incorporate all the elements of Naturopathy into my life. I strongly believe that what we eat can affect the mind, body and soul.
Some of the older recipes are comforting, cheesy, carb coma type recipes, now that I am on a healing journey, things are changing albeit very very slowly! I feel like when the kids are a little older and life isn’t as hectic, I may find it easier to make the bigger changes. That being said, some of the small changes I have made have made a MASSIVE change to my mental health and overall happiness. So a lot of internal healing and processing has been happening.
In my personal life, we have 2 very adorable and active children. We have a 6 year old boy and a 5 year old girl. When we aren’t working, they keep us busy.
I also love to walk. I love walking in nature and I love all kinds of markets and food stalls/events.I love the moon, the night sky and trees. My love for nature comes from my dad.. I now find myself talking to my own children about the beauty of nature and watching random programmes about penguins with them, just like he did with us. (Currently I am listening to my dad talking to my son about the rotation of the Earth and sunsets)!
Please please feel free to email me. I would love to hear from you!
