Iftar meals are essential for maintaining a sufficient, balanced diet during #Ramadan, when many fast for more than 12 hours. Check out the suggestions below to make your iftar meals more balanced.
At least 1-2 glasses of water should be consumed. This will keep you hydrated and offer your body with the fluids it requires.
💡 Ramadan drinks should be avoided because they are high in sugar and calories.

📍100g (1/4 cup) sugar
📍250ml (1 cup) water, divided into 2
📍160ml (⅔ cup) fresh lemon juice
📍15g (½ cup) mint leaves 420g
📍 (3 cups) ice cubes
👉 Serve yourself a bowl of soup
Iftar should begin with soup to refill the fluids lost during the day while fasting.
It also assists in the maintenance of a healthy digestive system by preparing your digestive system for the remainder of the meal.
😊 If you don’t want to consume a hot soup during the summer, cold soups are a perfect substitute.
