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 food. The food is inspired by global cuisine, is mainly vegetarian with the odd meat recipe, some lovely bread and indulgent desserts thrown in too because I believe that balance is key and deprivation is not. I love baking and I do a lot of it.
This space has adapted as I have grown, come back home to myself and learnt to love myself all over again. I have learnt to allow myself some freedom and nourish myself with the food that feels good for me. 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 am currently studying Naturopathy (Tibb) as well as Energy Healing. I will occasionally write about self knowledge, self care and self love because these are topics that I am very passionate about.
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 son about the rotation of the Earth and sunsets).
Anyway guys, please please feel free to email me. I would love to hear from you!
