By admin 23-March-2018
During Ramadan, many women often find themselves dedicating a significant amount of time and effort to serving up a big Iftar with a large variety of appetizing dishes. But did you know that Suhoor is an equally, if not more important meal for the fasting faithful? Investing in healthy and nutritious Suhoor goes a long way in helping us endure the long hours of fasting, and ward off excessive thirst and hunger.
The general guideline is to stay away from high-fat, high-carb meals and desserts. But that does not mean you cannot have a delicious meal.
We picked these wonderfully appetizing recipes for you, so you’ll have something new and different to serve to your loved ones every day.
1. Chick Pea and Walnut Falafel
Chickpeas are a highly recommended Suhoor option due to their many benefits, including: high in vegetable protein, calcium, magnesium and vitamins. You’ll find many recipes incorporating this wonder legume, but why don’t you try something new? This falafel recipe with a twist is tasty, healthy and nutritious.
