Ramzan diet: For all my muslim friends 15 June 2015
The holy time for muslims is just around the corner. With over 12 hours of strict fasting, it only becomes imperative for people to eat what can provide them the best nutrients and hence perform well in their daily chores. So here a few simple guidelines for you to follow during the month of ramzan:
Suhoor: This is the time your body is depleted and energy stores are used up during the night. So you need to focus on foods which give your energy and nutrients like vitamins like A, C, B- complex vitamins, minerals like sodium, potassium etc to help you sustain throughout the day. Opt for foods like fruits( every fruits is allowed especially bananas, mangoes, melons etc (due to their high water, potassium and antioxidant content), dried fruits( anjeer, dates, raisins, prunes) which give energy , oats/ ragi/ dalia in form of porridge, upma, chila etc, eggs to give you your protein content preventing muscle breakdown during the day and some Good fat rich nuts(almonds , walnuts, cashews, pistas).
Iftar: This is the time your hunger pangs at their peak and eating too much food, too fast can create a problem in digestion. The best way is to go slow. Again start with dried fruits and fruits to give your energy. Then have a balanced meal like salads + 1 grain be it wheat, jowar, rice or ragi + veggies/ sprouts + chicken or fish( grilled, steamed or roasted). Avoid fried and extra sweet foods as they can turn into fat easily after a long fast.
Important tip: Keep a ice cold napkin on your stomach 3-4 during the day. This will keep your body cool and prevent you from excess thirst.
