Eat hunger and thirst curbing fruits during Ramadan


Ramadan 2020 will begin from Saturday. It is an Islamic festival celebrated by Muslims across the globe.

Fasting during this month of Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam. Be smart about the food you choose to eat during Ramadan fasting.

Fruits that curb hunger and thirst and are also healthy to eat should be included in Ramadan ‘Sahoor’.

These fruits include:

Pear: Pear is a high-fiber fruit which contains essential antioxidants and plant compounds. The high-fiber and water content help keep you full for long. Pear provides essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and folate.

Apple: Eat apple as it contains high water content and ample fiber. The sweet and crunchy fruit is super healthy, delicious and low in calories. Apple contains antioxidants, vitamins, dietary fiber and a range of other nutrients to keep you energetic throughout fasting.

Orange: Orange is a high-fiber fruit and it provides bulk that may help you feel full for longer. Eat it whole to have a stronger effect on fullness that its juice would not provide. The fruit contains high water content. Loaded with vitamin C, the nutrition profile of orange is amazing.

Avocado: Avocado is rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids and protein content, unlike other fruits. In addition, the fruit contains high amount of fiber and healthy fats. So eat avocado to keep your fullness for long without adding calories.

Watermelon: Watermelon is a high-fiber fruit consisting 92 percent of water. It is extremely low in calories. Watermelon is an appetite-supressing fruit. Eating watermelon is an important way to keep your body well-hydrated due to its high water content. This property of the fruit will help you feel full for long.

Loaded with myriad of nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B1, B5, B6, magnesium, carotenoids including beta-carotene and lycopene, watermelon should be included in ‘Sahoor’.

They help you feel full for longer and curb your hunger and thirst during Ramadan fasting.
