As we move into the month of May we find ourselves still in Lockdown but with a glimmer of hope that there is light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel. Many countries are starting to open up once more, schools are returning and people are returning to work. There is still much uncertainty for the UK when we will be able to open our doors again, in the meantime here at Saffron we thought we would share our news and give some food for thought.

VE Day

This year May Day has been moved to Friday 8th May to help us celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. What better day to order a takeaway! We anticipate an increase in demand on this day so are taking food orders in advance to ensure that we are able to deliver to all our customers with limited delays. To place your order in advance please call us or order online.

Ramadan Update

We continue to observe Ramadan this week and have been preparing some delicious meals each day. Here is an insight to some of the dishes we have been eating to break our fast and some pictures received from our followers.

Stars Appeal

We are lucky enough to be working with The Stars Appeal at Salisbury Hospital, which ensures our free meals reach those in need the most. On Monday, we successfully delivered 100 vegetable curries and pilau rice to the hospital. Check out our Facebook page for highlights of the day!

You are what you eat!

During this time, it is more important that ever to ensure you are eating the right food as this can affect your mental wellbeing as well as physical. Sticking to the principles of a “plate of three” will help your chances of getting the right levels of food in your daily diet.

  • Half plate of vegetables
  • Quarter plate of carbohydrates, such as rice or pasta
  • Quarter plate of protein, such as meat, fish and lentils

Spices used in curries have a surprising amount of health benefits too.

So, next time you are eating one of our curries, don’t feel like it is an indulgence, it’s good for you!
