How to stay active in the month of Ramadan!

Ramadan is the month of spiritual nourishment and reinforces the values of humanity. As the month arrives all the Muslims have to keep a balance between fasting, dealing with scorching heat, and continuing daily activities.Fasting doent only mean to avoid food and water till Maghrib but it also includes reciting the Holy Quran (Tilawat), offering prayers (Namaz) five times a day, special prayer called ‘Taraweeh’ and, above all – good behaviour.

Most of us feel sleepy and lazy and feel as if we have less energy left in our body it is due to the routine that has changed. You can get rid of being lazy by consuming meals that are rich in carbohydrates. Following are the food options you can combine

  • Banana (Bananas are high in potassium and suppress your thirst)
  • Dates ( dates will give you a good stock of energy to be consumed slowly throughout the day)
  • Milk
  • Avocados
  • Dried peaches
  • Pumpkin
  • Peas
  • Dark chocolate

Some people prefer milkshakes made with syrup as it is easy and quick to prepare. This should be avoided as it contains high amounts of sugar, additives and colorants. If you really want to have it, then reduce the number to two per week. And oily food should be kept miles away.
