Ramadan Kareem to all my Muslim readers. I know it may seem a day late to the rest of the world, but we only started fasting in South Africa today as the moon was not sighted on Sunday from our corner of the globe.
My wish is for all of us fasting to have a spiritually rewarding and fulfilling month. May we all be in Allah’s blessings and mercy.
I really also want to thank all of you for reading. Especially my previous post Ramadan tips for the working person.
And being a working person myself I found myself in need of these very tips today. Yesterday when I got home from work, I cooked a big pot of soup so that of course was on the menu. The rest of the soup has been portioned up in Tupperware containers and taken out the fridge when I get home from work.
Since it was the first night, I made some pancakes (I always make pancakes on night one) and I fried some samoosas. But the fried stuff is definitely not going to be a nightly thing. Moderation in all areas is necessary.
I fasted really well today. But it was a bit warm here in Cape Town so I missed my water. I made up for this lack at iftar. At suhoor I downed about a litre and a half after I had my obligatory cof I don’t want to end the month with dry skin!
This morning I also made some eggs sunnyside up with an avo salad and let me tell you that no/low carb in the morning is the best thing you can do for yourself. Top tip: if your yolks are runny they serve as the best dressing for your salad.
What was on your menu today and how has the fast been for you? Tell me in the comments section below.
