With Ramadan here, we all want to eat food that stays in our stomachs during suhoor, that gets us through the day until iftaar-time, that doesn’t let us wake up and feel like our stomachs are completely empty.
A lot of us work and find it difficult to wake up for sehri/suhoor, but think of it this way…you might as well wake up at least a half-an-hour before time is up. Then, you can eat, pray fajr and peacefully sleep.
Slow-digesting meals include dairy products as in yoghurt and milk, fibers as in seeds, whole wheat and oats, iron-filled food as in fruits and almonds, and vegetables as in green beans, peas and lentils. Some ideas include rice with yoghurt and banana slices, vegetable soup, whole wheat bread with butter spread, almonds and lentil soup.
And…lots and lots of water!
