It is that time of year again, when Muslims from around the world celebrate Ramadan and fast from sunrise to sunset daily for a month. Ramadan is a time for spiritual reflection as well as a time for communities and families to come together. While it is a very special month for those celebrating, it can be confusing to know exactly what to eat to provide you with enough energy to get you through your fasts.
Eating healthy during Ramadan goes beyond going on a diet or losing weight. Eating the right foods will help you fuel your body the right way so you feel less tired and have more energy throughout the day. Making healthier food choices at suhoor will help you feel fuller for longer and provide you with the nutrients required for your body to get you through to iftar.
Click here to read my article on Masala Mommas to learn the types of foods to include at suhoor to fuel your body properly for those long summer fasts.
Once you have read the article, check out my Ramadan Suhoor Meal Planner to help you make planning for suhoor easier. To use the Suhoor Meal Planner, print and fill in using the "Food Types" column as a guide. Try to have at least one food from each group, using the examples under each heading as a guide. Feel free to select foods that are not listed and if you aren't sure which category a food item falls into, let me know and I can help you!
Use the "Notes" section to:
Make notes on how you feel after eating certain foods
How much water you are drinking
Grocery list items you need to stock up on for the following week
I hope this Suhoor Planner simplifies 3AM meal planning for you, I know I will be printing it out and using it weekly! Share how you are using your Ramadan Suhoor Meal Planner by tagging me @NutritionbyNaz on Instagram and Twitter.
