Muslims around the world are now observing the month of Ramadan.
During this time, they have to refrain from eating and drinking from dawn till dusk daily, until Eid al-Fitr comes along on June 15.
This act of sacrifice is a way to draw believers closer to God, and it’s also a time to remember the sufferings of those less fortunate who may often go hungry.
Before the start of the fast every morning, Muslims will eat a pre-dawn meal called suhoor.
As it’s the only meal they’ll have for some 14 hours, it’s important to have something well-balanced that will provide sustained energy throughout the day.
Here are some foods to load up on, and some to avoid:
Foods that have a lot of fibre, such as fruits and vegetables, will leave you feeling full for longer.
They are also rich in vitamins and minerals, and will help prevent constipation.
