Get to Know Tuesdays – Izzah Cheema of Tea for Turmericjump to recipe
Welcome to our “Get to Know” series! Each Tuesday (for the next year), we’re going to introduce you to a creator in the wellness space that we think you NEED to know. The creators we feature are of various backgrounds. Whether they’re an online content creator, coach, or owner of a product-based brand, they each have their own niche in the wellness world and contribute to the space, as a whole, in an incredibly meaningful way. We’re setting this up Q&A-style so that you can learn more about each creator’s why, the content that they’re most proud of, and exactly how you can be a part of and contribute to their journey. We hope you enjoy our conversations with these wonderful people and brands. We know they’re going to enrich your lives!
This week, we’re interviewing Izzah of Tea for Turmeric. Izzah says: “I’ve always loved eating nutritious food, not for fads or looks, but because of the way it makes me feel. Plus, it tastes better! Luckily, South Asian cuisine naturally incorporates whole, healthful foods, and I try to make traditional dishes even healthier on this blog.”Follow along as we learn more about Izzah:
Why did you start your business?
Izzah: It was a spontaneous decision. One day my husband came home from work and I showed him my new website. I've always loved cooking and writing and I was curious where a blog would lead me. It led me to so much more than I hoped!
What’s your mission/purpose statement?
Izzah: I aim to share authentic, easy-to-follow South Asian recipes that taste amazing.
What 2 (or 3!) pieces of content are you the proudest of?
- Chicken Biryani for sure. That was a tough one because people adore it and have high standards for it. I didn't breathe until I got my first positive response on it.
- Instant Pot Kheer (Rice Pudding) is another good one. The Instant Pot can do magical things.
Where are you going next? What’s your goal for the next year?
Izzah: Because my children are so little, I'm usually caught between what I want to do vs. what I actually can do. I want to continue to grow Tea for Turmeric while challenging myself to find new ways to serve my audience.
