Don’t forget the importance of food
Especially during Ramadan, it is important to eat foods that will keep your energy high during the hours of fasting.

The suhoor is the most important meal of the day and should healthy and fulfilling: with lots of fiber, lean protein, and healthy fats. You should also remember to eat fruits and veggies. Try to incorporate lots of different color on your plate – greens, carrots, peppers.
