When cooking, also remember to take the MSG, salt and sugar down a notch. Processed ingredients like these are quick tickets to thirst and lethargy- well into the next day, so add in herbs and aromatics instead. Not only are substitutes like basil, parsley, garlic and onions easily available, it gives your meal more personality too.
During Ramadan, maintaining energy levels throughout the day is a challenge, but being mindful of the foods that you eat goes a long way. If a diet plan is too much for you, avoiding processed foods is a good start. Also be sure to eat light and slow in Iftar, so you won’t have an upset stomach all through the night. You can always leave the heavy feasting for Eid instead.
