Suhoor is very important during Ramadan as it’s the source of energy that keeps us energized throughout the day. Some people prefer eating a speedy suhoor right before going to bed late at night, and others prefer fixing a quick meal when they wake up at dawn. Either way, discover below the basics of a traditional suhoor that you can prepare for two persons.
What to eat for suhoor?
Suhoor must be balanced and varied. It should include foods that are healthy and easily digestible, to prevent you from a deficit in nutrition levels and help you avoid health problems such as constipation.
1. A good dose of Protein
Protein is essential to help you stay full and energized during the day. For two persons, your suhoor table can include 4 slices of cheese, 2 eggs, and one cup of California Garden Fava Beans Koshna Recipe. The latter is ready to eat and super quick to prepare, and only needs 5 minutes of heating. You don’t even need to season it! Enjoy with half a loaf of Arabic bread per person.
2. High levels of Vitamins
Fruits and vegetables provide you with essential vitamins that eventually convert into energy, which you’ll need until it’s time for Iftar. For two people, prepare a plate of vegetables that includes 2 sliced cucumbers, 1 sliced large tomato and few lettuce leaves. Add pickles and olives to taste, but make sure you don’t rely on them as vegetables as they tend to make you a little thirsty during the day.
You can each enjoy one portion of fruits, as long as they’re not sugary but loaded with vitamins like berries, kiwi, and watermelon.
3. Unsweetened drinks
Sugar tends to burn quickly and leave you tired and hungry during the day. This is why we recommend you to drink 1 cup of unsweetened drinks such as coffee or tea for suhoor. Don’t forget to drink a lot of water, and if you find it hard to swallow it plain as soon as you wake up, you can flavor it with a squeeze of lemon juice. Ramadan Kareem!
