Ramadan in the summer.
It has been done before and it will happen again this year!
For some reason, so many articles seem to be coming out now with “what to eat to keep your energy up” and “special foods to keep you hydrated”.
We get it…people want to write articles that go viral. But, since when were all these things such a concern?
We’ve always seen Ramadan as a great challenge to accomplish. We overcome our emotions, and our physical desires for food.. and instead focus on the inner self and more spiritual pursuits. It’s definitely important to make sure we’re healthy as well, and when you follow the basic guidelines of fasting, you should be in good shape. If you have any sort of medical condition, always talk to a doctor first!
Of course food does come in to play. But we don’t think it should be the main focus and obsession.
That’s why we’re all about doing things easy and simple. We hope to bring some easy to make recipes during Ramadan that can help you get by at the last minute.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the “feasting” and forget about the “fasting”. That’s why so many people ironically gain weight in Ramadan.
There is a lot of fun to be had when celebrating with friends and family and eating iftar (the meal at sunset), and we love that aspect.
We’re going to try to keep it simple and not go too crazy with the dinner buffet spreads.
What are your plans this Ramadan? We’re not sure if it’s going to be easy or tough this year.. but the first few days are always hard right?
