Great Tips for Healthy Eating in Ramadan

by Ady Grewal Content writer
Ramadan is the ninth and probably the most sacred month of the Islamic year. During Ramadan, Muslims observe their obligatory fasts for the entire month as the 3rd pillar of the Islamic faith. Hence, not only Muslims abstain from eating or drinking anything from dawn till dusk but also refrain from everything that is prohibited in the state of fast but halal otherwise. As a result, Ramadan instils believers with the traits of patience, gratitude, and love for the needy and poor. 

While also, some people from all across the globe also prefer going for the performance of minor pilgrimage through Ramadan umrah packages from Manchester and other cities. As it holds great rewards for pilgrims. 

So, whether performing umrah or not, one should always abide by healthy eating in Ramadan. Here are a few tips for you.

Don’t ever skip the Suhoor.

Suhoor or ‘Pre-Dawn Meal’ is as essential during Ramadan as breakfast is during the other months. It’s not only a Sunnah to have Suhoor meal but also a medically proven fact for good health in Ramadan. However, organic eating is also advised. The meal should be wholesome including a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, and dairy products. So that you can have a sufficient energy reserve in your body to withstand the whole day.

Over-eating during Iftar is not good.

Since you’ve fasted all day long, it would be harmful to you to eat way too much at Iftar. Rather, break your fast with some water and dates (also a Sunnah) and then have small portions of everything that is available on your dining table. Don’t eat to your fill but by the one-third rule. In this way, you can avoid an infinite number of heart and stomach diseases.

Drink plenty of water but with small intervals.

Similarly, it’s not an intelligent move to drink litres of water at once. You must drink plenty of it but with a 20-30-minute gap in between.  

Switch to a healthy and balanced diet.

In Ramadan, consuming healthy, balanced and organic food is of many benefits. It helps you stay active and fit. Furthermore, you can easily avoid common stomach health irregularities. Thus, as always, fruits vegetables, nuts, juices, and whole-grain products remain top of the list.

Avoid deep-fried, junk, and too much sugary and salty foods.

Junk, Oily and too Sugary/Salty foods must be off your list in Ramadan. As said before, they can enhance your chances of falling sick. Despite that, after a whole day of fasting, it’s unjust to burden your digestive system with all that is unhealthy. 

So, if you are going for 7 day umrah packages during Ramadan, these healthy eating tips will help you make your umrah trip more safe, memorable, healthy and efficient for yourself.
