The holy month of ramzan or ramadan is here. During this holy month Muslims
all across the world observe intermittent fasting. They observe fast the whole day and eat only before dawn and after sunset.
But during this period of intermittent fasting it is highly important to keep your health in mind. The foods that you eat or any drink that you consume need to be selected very carefully.
There is a belief that the fast is observed to bring them closer to God and also to remind them of the suffering of those who are less fortunate.
Due to the change in food habits and also the timings, many people end up getting constipation, indigestion, etc. If not taken care, it might turn to piles as well later.
Hence, eating the right food and the right drink is very important to prevent a number of these health issues and keep one hydrated and energized to observe the month long fasting.
So today in this article we will be discussing a few of the healthy drinks that one can consume during iftar. Take a look.
Milk & Dates:
Take a few dry dates, soak them for 12 hours in a glass of milk. Take these soaked dates and milk to break your fast. It helps in providing you the needed energy and maintain the blood sugar level that would have gone down during the fasting period.
Apricot is rich in fibre content and vitamin A. The retinol in apricot is fat soluble that quickly gets dissolved in the body and the nutrients get absorbed easily. This aids better digestion.
Take a glass of water, a bunch of mint leaves and one crushed lemon juice. Add all these ingredients in a blender and then blend it well. Drink this for iftar. Rich in vitamin C and fibre, mint lemonade helps in refreshing and energizing you after the day long fasting.
Banana is rich in potassium, dietary fibres, vitamin C and B6. It has low cholesterol level as well. You need to take just 1-2 bananas, add them to a blender with one cup of milk and blend it well. Drink this one glass of banana milkshake for iftar. It energizes you.
Soak 10-12 almonds overnight in a glass of water and then peel them. Take a glass of low fat milk, the almonds, a teaspoon of honey and a few peeled cardamons. Add all these ingredients into a blender and blend it well. Drink this one glass of almond shake during iftar; it helps.
Apple & Tomato Juice:
Rich in vitamins, iron and fibre content, apple and tomato juice are a must-have after you break the fast. Peel the apples and tomatoes and chop them into small pieces. Add these to a glass of water, a bit of lemon juice and a teaspoon of honey. Blend it well and then drink it.
There is nothing like drinking a glass of water when you break the fast. It not just helps in replenishing and hydrating the body, it also helps to provide you the energy that would have been lost during the fasting period.
