Suhoor snacks that maintains energy levels and hydration
Ramadan is upon us and there are certain foods that go a long way in maintaining your energy levels and ensuring you remain moderately hydrated throughout the long day.
This is an obvious one that many people forget — keep sipping water throughout the non-fasting hours to avoid dehydration. It’s also a good idea to avoid salty foods as these could make you thirsty.
Milk or yogurt
Calcium-rich products, such as skimmed yogurt, aid muscle strength and retain hydration.
Light puddings, such as rice pudding, can be consumed during suhoor as they leave you feeling full and provide your body with the energy you need.
Fruits and vegetables
Having a fruit or vegetable at suhoor is an ideal way to stay hydrated. They are a good source of energy, sugar and fiber. Go for waterlogged veggies, such as cucumbers.
Cheese, labneh, eggs and fava beans provide you with energy and delay hunger pangs throughout the day. Meats such as fish, lean beef and white-meat poultry are good options as long as you go for the low-fat ones.
Complex carbohydrates will ensure you don’t get the post-meal crash you would when enjoying simple carbohydrates.
