Approved Suhoor Meals

If you think Futoor’s the most important meal in Ramadan, stomach then you need to think again. Futoor’s all about getting your blood sugar up and rehydration from 16 hours of fasting. Basically, side effects all you need are 3 dates and 2 glasses of water. Unfortunately, we never stop there. 16 hours of fasting builds crazy cravings, and when delicious food is laid on the table, not even a nuclear bomb can stop us from indulging.

The Bulge

What happens after we feast, or more appropriately pig out? We get dizzy and lay on a sofa rubbing our bulging bellies from all the food we ate. It’s common sense people- fasting for 16 hours and then gorging on a huge calorie load will send us into low blood sugar induced deep sleep. Plus, all the blood supply will rush towards the stomach to aid in digestion, leaving us light headed.

I apologize for going off-topic, but I need you all to understand why Futoor’s not the most important meal in Ramadan. Like I said earlier, it only takes 3 dates and 2 glasses of water to get energized from 16 hours of fasting.

NEVER SKIP SUHOOR!

Was that clear enough for you guys? Hook yourself up with the best alarm clock you can find! Go steal BIG BEN if you have to, just make sure YOU WAKE UP! Suhoor’s importance TRUMPS Futoor’s- it’s the meal that’ll help kill hunger and energize you for 8-10 hours. However, it’s also the meal that can damage you the most, sending your cravings to unprecedented levels once you wake up.

Eating too little at Suhoor won’t provide your body with enough nutrients to sustain energy and kill cravings, but eating too much will send your blood sugar levels crashing. Once your blood sugar levels go down, you’ll wake up sluggish, tired and SUPER HUNGRY.

Anyways, enough with the chatter. Lets get down to business!

    Hey Fahad, another great Suhoor meal is a bowl of fool with spices+oregano+olive oil and some brown bread and together these digest slowly because of the high fiber and protein content. Followed by a nonfat yoghurt with honey to quench thirst and sugar needs. What do you think of that?
