|Canon firing to indicate end of fasting.|
Once nice thing about the month of Ramadan is the shorter working hours. While the usual working time is 9 hours, most people (including myself) work for only 6 hours during this period. So in reality, we (non-Muslims) need to manage the fasting for about 6 hours only.
|Protein-heavy breakfast with eggs, lean meat & Milk|
Keeping this fact in mind, my Ramadan-month breakfast is basically a protein-heavy breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, lean meats (chicken or turkey), cheese and milk along with some carbs.
Here's the nutritional data of my ideal breakfast that will keep the hunger pangs away for 6 to 7 hours.
|1 Scrambled Eggs||100||7.4||1||6.8|
|Whole Wheat Bread||138||1.8||23.2||7.2|
|1 Kiri Cheese Cube 18g||58||5.6||0.3||1.4|
|3 Turkey Slices||60||0||3||10.5|
I sometimes drop the apple and replace it with an extra scrambled egg (2 scrambled eggs for breakfast). This will drop the carbs, and increase the proteins. However, the calories remain almost the same.
With this breakfast, I can complete my days work without feeling irritable or anxious for my next food fix.
