It’s that time of year again…
Ramadan is here!
And with Ramadan arriving during the longest days of the year (at least here in the Northern hemisphere), fueling in the dark hours is super, duper important.
What to Eat for Suhoor and Iftar
In general, you want to eat more vegetables, fiber, protein, and healthy fats. Your body will burn fats for energy during the 16-hour fast, and you help your body stay efficient at energy production by not overloading on sugars and sweets in the evening. Healthy carbs, like lentils, beans, and fruit (not fruit juice) in moderate amounts help your body refuel and replenish glycogen stores.
(sorry for getting too technical!)
There’s so much to share with you that I created a whole workshop on the topic.
You will leave this workshop with:
- Clarity on what foods to eat for sustained energy throughout the fast
- Suhoor and Iftar ideas
- Understanding of the health benefits of fasting for detox, weight loss, digestive health, and cardiovascular health, and how to eat to maximize the benefits
- Tips and strategies for hydration
- A countdown to Ramadan so your body is prepared and strong for the fast

Here’s what some people who attended the workshop said:
My biggest challenge during Ramadan is eating too much at Iftar. This workshop taught me how to get the maximum of healthy foods and replace the bad habits. I plan to rearrange the way I eat in Iftar and Suhur and focus on fiber.
I have a hard time staying hydrated and not eating too much sugary sweets. I learned how I can fill up and eat less, how to reduce the sugar and get more fiber. I will be making some things to freeze in advance.
