Eat well and have healthy Sehri in Ramadan

We all know how many of us just end up shoveling random food items in our month during Sehri. However, let’s agree on how we all know it’s wrong as well. So let’s try to have healthy Sehri in Ramadan. Whole grain cereal with honey is a good option. Cut down on sugar – switch it with honey. Add water rich foods like tomato salads, cucumber and juicy fruits for example oranges. Not only are these healthy but will keep you hydrated for a longer period of time. 

Choose healthy Carbs

Both your Iftar and Sehri should contain complex and healthy carbohydrates. Healthy options include whole grain wheat, fruits, beans, green vegetables and if you can’t keep your hands off rice then switch to brown rice. Have nuts and seeds like almonds, walnuts hazelnuts, chia seeds or pumpkin seeds.

Cut down on Caffeine

This can be very difficult for caffeine lovers but do you know you need at least 3 cups of water to compensate for the water loss for each cup of coffee and now considering your water intake drops during Ramadan it’s better to cut down on it and have plenty of water instead to keep you hydrated. 

Sleep well 

Many of us tend to sleep only after Sehri and are awake whole night chilling thinking waking up late would compensate for lost sleep but that’s not true. It’s better to get a good night’s sleep so you can carry out your daily work/chores and pray well without feeling fatigued or sleepy. 

Avoid sugar

Heavy meals that contain lots of sugar should be avoided at both Sehri and Iftar. If you crave for something sweet rather than having any dessert, have some fruits or baked goods which contain refined sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Healthy Iftar options in Ramadan

It’s best to avoid greasy foods at Iftar. Rather than having fried foods, invest in an Airfryer and have Air fried fritters/rolls/samosas or bake them. Other healthy options include chia pudding, chickpeas and fruit salads.

Healthy lifestyle in Ramadan for high-risk individuals

A lot of muslims have health conditions that put them at higher risk to fast during Ramadan. If the elderly, the sick or the pregnant/lactating females still decide to fast regardless of their health conditions, it is mandatory for them to consult their doctor and take necessary precautions to ensure safety and health.
