When talking about Ramadan, most people will think about fasting – the abstinence from all food and drink from sunrise to sunset. Fasting has a variety of health benefits, including digestive boost, detox, and fat burning, but if you don’t do it properly, you may end up with more health risks. We often assume that fasting will help us lose weight. However, the overeating during non-fasting hours actually causes people to put on weight. Here are some easy Ramadan recipes that will keep you well-nourished without having to stock up too many high calories foods.

Egg salad for Suhoor

This egg salad is not only about boiled eggs and mayo. For this recipe, you will have loads of veggies, too. A serving of this egg salad requires:

  • 5 cups of lettuce, arugula, spinach, or all of them
  • Half of a sweet bell pepper of any color
  • Half of a medium tomato
  • Half of a baby cucumber
  • Some avocados cut into small cubes
  • 2 hard boiled eggs cut into small cubes
  • About 30gr of fresh mozzarella cheese in cubes
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of crushed thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

All you need to do is mixing everything in a big bowl and season as you wish. You may add more eggs and ingredients to make a bigger meal for more people. Although this recipe is quite high in fat, the fats from olive oil and avocado are considered healthy fats. So, they are not a cause for concern. If you only eat eggs one or two times every week, it’s OK to have 2 eggs in this salad. Some people do not like the taste of cheese, so you may skip it if you want.

Simple Muesli

Muesli is the healthy combination of raw oats, dried fruits, and nuts. It’s high in nutrients and easy to make. For 6 servings of muesli, you will need to mix:

  • 1 cup of whole oats.
  • 1 cup of nuts (slivered almonds, chopped walnuts, peanuts, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/3 cup of chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup of shredded coconut without sweeteners
  • 1 cup of dried fruit (chopped prunes, apricots, dates or raisins)
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder or 2 tablespoons of dark chocolate chips

After you have mixed everything well, put the mixture in an air-tight container. This mixture may last up to 4 weeks in your pantry. To serve, you may add yogurt or other milk alternatives then store it in the fridge overnight so the muesli will be moist and soaked when you eat it the next morning. Or, you can just eat them immediately to see which kind of texture you like better.
