These five things will save you from the heat during the fasting month of Ramadan.
The month of Ramadan will soon start, and Eid, after fasting for the whole month, is called Meethi Eid or Eid-ul-Fitr. To observe the fast, people from the Muslim community eat ‘seheri’ in the morning before sunrise and break their fast in the evening with delicious dishes for ‘iftar’. Since one is fasting the whole, it’s essential that you also take complete care of their health. So today, we'll tell you about some food items and beverages that can help you stay healthy for the whole month.
- Mint: Mint is good for health in the summer season. Do you know why? Because mint keeps the digestive system intact. Fasting during the summer season can be challenging, causing dehydration in the body. In such a situation, eat mint chutney during iftar and enhance its taste by adding it to crush or syrup.
- Aam Panna: In the summer season, the risk of heatstroke remains the highest due to fasting throughout the day. There can be no better option than aam panna in such a situation. Mango contains Vitamin A and calories, which benefit the most during fasting.
- Lemon: Lemon must be consumed during seheri and iftar because it helps maintain Vitamin C and potassium levels. It’s also suitable for your skin tissues. So, if you want to maintain balance in the body, the best remedy is lemon.
- Watermelon: At the time of iftar, eat watermelon to reduce dehydration in your body and improve your digestive system. According to doctors, watermelon contains 80% water, which helps to keep a tab on water deficiency in the body.
- Cucumber: Cucumber must be eaten during iftar as it contains minerals and micro-nutrients, maintaining the energy level in the body. In addition, cucumber contains 80% water, tackling the water deficit in your body.
You can consume all the above things during the fasting of Ramadan to keep yourself hydrated.
