About Me – Tiffin and Tea
Hey…I’m Safira. Welcome to my little place on the net.
Tiffin and Tea was born at a time when I was really struggling with my mental health. At the time my daughter was 3 and my son was 4. I was mentally and physically exhausted and in the midst of all of that, I discovered that baking and cooking had a way of relieving my anxiety.
The name just felt like a natural fit. We loved tea and I used to pack a tiffin for my husband to take to work with him. I also associated a tiffin with travelling and that is something I wanted to do a lot of.
People were always asking me for recipes and I thought a blog would be the perfect place to share them.
The blog is focussed on feel good family food. The food is inspired by global cuisine, there are some lovely bread and indulgent dessert recipes thrown in too because I believe that food is there to be enjoyed. This space has adapted as I have evolved.This is how we eat now and it is how our way of eating has adapted over time as a result of learning about what works for us.
Other things about me.. I have studied Tibb/Natural Medicine as well as Energy Healing/Breathing Techniques. I will occasionally write about these things too.
I am also building up a photography portfolio and will be adding some tips and tricks to the site shortly.
You may see the odd picture of days out and nature. My love for nature comes from my dad.. I find myself talking to my own children about the beauty of nature all the time and watching random programmes about penguins with them, just like my dad did with us. (Currently I am listening to my dad talking to my 4 year old son about the rotation of the Earth and sunsets).
Please feel free to email me. I love hearing from you.
