5 healthier food choices for suhoor before fasting
Not sure what to eat when you wake up for suhoor?
You might have seen a laundry list of various foods you can eat for suhoor. The reality is that most people feel too tired to cook so early in the morning.
But it's easier than you think to find food that is right in your kitchen which is both healthier and filling.
#1 Oatmeal / whole grains
Have a simple bowl of oatmeal and pair it up with some fruit and nuts!
Or have a slice of whole grain bread paired with one of the options below.
#2 Nuts / Nut Butter
You can add some almonds and walnuts to your oatmeal or simply spread some peanut butter on whole grain toast which will keep you full.
We all need that extra protein to keep us going throughout the day. Pair up some boiled eggs with your favorite bread!
#4 Greek Yogurt
This is another excellent protein option with calcium in case you are not a milk person. Add some flax seed and your favorite nuts or berries.
I always try to have a piece of fruit, like a banana, a date, or some blueberries. Be careful not to eat only fruit or too much fruit!
