5 Types of Foods to Eat for Suhoor

Fasting is hard. Especially when Ramadan hit summer, and the time between sunrise and sunset seems to be an eternity. That’s why Karaz’s Yousef has compiled a list of 5 types of foods to eat for suhoor, based on expert advice, to make the fast a little more bearable.

1. FIBER

Fiber keeps you full and provides you with that much needed energy. Plus, it helps regular your ‘business’. Great foods to get your fiber fix include; whole wheat bread, pasta, brown rice, nuts, seeds, and more.

2. PROTEIN

Protein puts off hunger—an amazing characteristic all fasters want this Ramadan. It will also give you energy, and help that zombie-like state be a little less zombie-ish. To get your protein fix, try; eggs, yogurt, beans, soy, fish, lean beef and white-meat poultry.

3. HEALTHY FATS

Fried food sucks. Not only is a bad for you, it wont last long. So opt for the type of fats that will keep you fuller for longer. These include; avocados, nuts, nut butter, olives and olive oil (which, as Arabs, we have in abundant supply).

4. FRUITS & VEGGIES

Don’t forget your requirements for fruits and veggies every day. Mix it up if you want to just have one kind, by rotating between fruits and veggies every other day.

5. WATER!

Staying hydrated is UBER important. Fruits and veggies will help with keeping you hydrated, but drink as much water as possible—at least 2 glasses at suhoor. Water is magic. Avoid sugary drinks and sodas, they’re bad for you and you’ll regret the decision around 1 PM.

Keep it balanced. Keep it healthy. Keep it up!
