7 tips to see you through Ramadan
- Do what works for you, for some this means a substantial sit down meal at Suhoor while for others a few dates and a glass of water is sufficient.
- Breaking your fast with warm water and dates is a great way to rehydrate and energise your body.
- Whether cooked or fresh leafy greens – vegetables are always a good idea as they are packed with vitamins, minerals and fibre.
- As tempting and thirst quenching they may seem, try replacing sugary drinks with water and fruit.
- Oily fish is high in Omega 3 and beneficial to any balanced diet, especially in Ramadan.
- Foods high in fat salt and sugar! Where possible, I switch up cooking methods for healthier alternatives. Like baking instead of frying.
- Let me know if this is you, but rushing through meals invites indigestion. So let's eat slow, enjoy and savour the moment.
With all this being said, I have shared with you the tips that work for me and before taking on any tips you’re unsure about, please seek professional medical advice.
