Ramadan Mubarak! Each culture and family have their own dishes that form part of their suhoor (the meal before dawn) and iftar, (the feast that breaks the fast at sundown).
Check out our top 6 Ramadan recipes to cure fasting fatigue.
Porridge – oats and oatmeals
Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. They’re a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Studies show that oats and oatmeal have many health benefits. These include weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and a reduced risk of heart disease. We love eating Porridge as our Suhoor (Pre-dawn) meal as it releases energy slowly throughout the day ahead.
Eggs, scrambles, fried or poached
Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. A whole egg contains all the nutrients required to turn a single cell into a baby chicken. One egg contains 75 calories, along with 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of healthy fats.
Greek yogurt is a good source of probiotics. These are living microorganisms that help your gut stay healthy, so you won’t have to worry about feeling sluggish during the day due to poor digestion.
What’s great about Greek yogurt is how many different power foods you can add on top. Berries, nuts, oats, granola, seeds, honey, apples, papaya, mango, coconut, and over a dozen other fruits can make breakfast an enjoyable and satisfying way to start your day.
Roti or Chapati
A plain roti is an excellent source of soluble fibre, which helps lower blood cholesterol levels, prevents constipation and helps keep our digestive system healthy. Loaded with complex carbohydrates that give you sustained energy and it can keep you satiated for hours.
