Healthy fast – Suhoor
Suhoor is the most important meal of the day during Ramadan as it is the fuel to get you through a day of fasting. Since most of us eat Suhoor just before Fajr, it also needs to be quick and easy to prepare. This makes it tempting to reach for a bowl of sugary cereal or a pastry, but these high-carb, low-protein options will have you feeling hunger pains long before Maghrib. Instead, try this make-ahead, protein and fibre-packed option.
Almond milk muesli
1 cup store-bought muesli cereal
1-2 cups almond milk
½ cup berries or shredded apple
Pour a cup of muesli into a bowl, leaving room for it to expand. Mix-in berries or shredded apple, then top with almond milk to completely cover by at least a centimetre or two.
Put in the refrigerator overnight. All the milk will absorb, leaving a thick, cold porridge packed with fibre and hearty whole grains. Simply stir and serve.
