It is important to maintain our physical strength in this hot summer day. So some unhealthy foods should be avoided. In our day, our eating habits change, we eat sehirry (before sunrise) and during the iftar (after sunset). These two foods are an important part of Rojas. If you want to know about the foods that need to be avoided in Sehri and iftar
Do not eat foods that may be eaten:
1. Refined carbohydrate
Foods made from refined carbohydrate foods such as sugar, flour, pastry, donut etc. are only 3-4 hours and they contain less essential nutrients. So it is better to not eat such food in Sehorei.
2. Saline meal
The imbalance of sodium level imbalances will make you thirsty while roasting. So avoid eating foods that have saline nut, pickles, chips and soy sauce.
3. Caffeine rich drinks
Coffee caffeine may cause insomnia and unrest. It also does not help you stay hydrated and increases your thirst during fasting.
Instead of these, there may be protein rich foods such as egg, fiber rich foods such as oatmeal, calcium and vitamins rich foods such as milk and dairy products etc.
Do not eat food iftar:
1. Carbonated drink
Processed drinks and carbonated drinks should be avoided iftar. Drink ordinary water or coconut water, which will satisfy your thirst.
2. High quality sugar food
High-quality sugary foods like sweet or chocolate should be avoided. They cause weight gain and everyday complications arise.
3. Fried Food
It is better to avoid oily and crumpled foods such as pancakes, onions, etc.
Instead, instead of fruits, potassium-rich fruit, such as dates, can eat iftar. Drink enough water to avoid dehydration. Raw nuts such as kalashadam can eat that will meet your fat needs. You can also eat cucumbers, lettuce and high-fat fiber vegetables which will help you stay hydrated.
Fasting improves health, but it is only when properly kept. If it does not, then it is worse than better. Therefore, it is important to self-control even when it comes to satisfying food. Remember that Ramadan is the month of getting rewards and benefits and this increases your spiritual connection this month.
