Before starting a long day of fasting, some Muslims like to have a light snack before dawn. Making smart food choices during this time can go a long way in making or breaking your day.

Fruits or vegetables are perfect for suhoor. They’re hydrating, full of beneficial nutrients, and can keep you feeling energized during the day. Dried fruits are also a Ramadan favorite!

#2 Proteins Foods

Think of breakfast proteins. Eggs, turkey, cheese, labneh; have whatever you’re in the mood for! You can make it work with your choices of fruits and veggies. For example, a preferred summer suhoor is watermelon and halloumi.

#3 Bread & Cereals

Confession ….this is an old photo. One that I took the day before I went into labour. Understandably I totally forgot about it, because my phone was flooded with baby pics, and I didn't share. So here I am over a year later FINALLY posting this. Timing couldn't be more perfect since bread baking is the current trend. If you are lucky enough to have some flour then give these a go! You need 2tsp instant yeast 250ml warm water 1tsp caster sugar 1tsp salt 450g plain flour 3tbsp olive oil Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl and make a well in the center. Mix your wet ingredients in a jug and slowly pour into the bowl and start to mix until the dough comes together. Then knead on a floured surface for 8ish mins. Place into an lightly oiled bowl and cover for proving for 1-1.5hrs or until doubled in size. Once proved, divide the dough into 8 equal portions and roll out. You can roll these into the traditional pita shapes you buy from the shops but I went for round. Place on a baking sheet and cook in a preheated oven at 220°c fan for about 5-6 mins until golden and puffed up. . . . . #pita #pitabread #madefromscratch #bread #flatbread #homebaking #bakersgonnabake #bakegram #middleeasternbread #breadmaking #keepcalmandcookon #stayhome #food52 #quarantinebaking #feedfeedbaking #bakinglove #londonfood #putneymums #thebakefeed #food52grams #foodphotography #recipeshare #foodphotooftheday #ourfoodstories #eatpretty #huffposttaste

Make yourself a sandwich or a bowl of oatmeal for a quick and easy suhoor. Pro-tip: Complex carbs are great for keeping you full for longer, so opt for whole wheat!

#4 Yogurt or Milk


Milk or yogurt are calcium-rich, easily accessible, and can help you stay hydrated.

#5 Water

And of course, water before fasting. Make sure you keep drinking enough water from iftar until suhoor time to rehydrate your body. Avoid salty foods that can make you feel thirsty during the long day of fasting.
