As Ramadan comes up in the next week, it is important to stay healthy during your fast. During Ramadan, the typical occurrences of when the fast is broken are during iftar (sunset meal) and suhoor (pre-dawn meal).
Here are some tips you may want to incorporate during this Holy month.
1. Take Your Vitamins
Vitamins are essential for staying healthy and keeping your energy up. Due to the loss of food and fluids throughout the day, it is important to absorb those missed nutrients through vitamins.
Canvita offers some great options regarding vitamins! Some of the vitamins we recommend are vitamins C, D, and our multivitamins. These are all nutrient-packed and will allow you to stay energized!
2. Nutrient-Filled Foods to Eat During Suhoor
Suhoor (pre-dawn meal) is the most important meal of the day! It is the meal that will sustain you until Iftar. Along with our vitamins, here are a couple of options of food you should consider incorporating into your Suhoor diet because of all the high nutrients they carry.
- Assorted Fruits
- Assorted vegetables
3. Nutrient-filled Foods to eat during Iftar
Iftar (sunset meal) is valuable because it is the meal that will sustain you until Suhoor. Along with food, It is also important to keep hydrated! Drink lots of water to keep your body healthy.
- Rice and alternatives (complex carbs will keep you full and are good for fibre)
- Whole grains
- Cut out caffeine (can cause you to be dehydrated)
