Stay Healthy This Ramadan with Dates

Stay Healthy This Ramadan with Dates

For decades, dates have been known for their great health benefits, and there is a reason why Muslims break their fast during Ramadan with a date:

When fasting, your body can suffer from headaches, low blood sugar and lethargy.

Dates are a great source of fiber, sugar, carbohydrates, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5 and C, potassium and magnesium, so they’re a great way to help your body go back to its normal health level.

Why else do we love dates?

  • They are a great way to fill you up and help you maintain your weight, yes even though they are a sweet sugary fruit dates can help you maintain your weight during Ramadan.
  • Snack on a few dates instead of sugary desserts and sweets; try a mix of dates and almonds as well to keep you full. But make sure that there is no artificial sugar coating on the dates.
  • To avoid over eating during Iftar, break your fast with 2 dates and a cup of yogurt or milk.
  • A single serving of about 100 grams of dates has around 280 calories.
