Foul medammes, boiled eggs, and yogurt are all suhoor table staples that we’re all used to and love. However, a week into Ramadan and you eventually get tired of the same old foods every day, right? Check this article out for our take on healthy suhoor meals that will nourish your body and satisfy your taste buds.
Alongside your suhoor meal, always remember to drink two large glasses of water to make up for the fasting period.
Greek Yogurt and Berries
Yogurt is the perfect suhoor food, as it is high in slow releasing protein that will keep your muscles replenished throughout the long fasting period. Adding some berries will make your meal more hydrating as well as provide you with some healthy sugars to keep you going throughout the day.
You don’t need to completely give up breakfast just because you are fasting for the month. Try out this chocolate oatmeal recipe for a suhoor that is full of slow releasing energy to prevent that infamous mid-day fasting crash.
