Let’s be honest, we’re more than halfway into Ramadan and as the days roll by, it gets a little more challenging for us to wake up in time to prepare a good Sahur meal. But even if you wake up minutes before the Azan, don’t give up. Dash right to your kitchen because you might still be in time for a quick meal. Here are 10 things you can prepare in case you snooze!

No better way to start your day with dates! After all, our Prophet (S) said:”How excellent are dates as the believer’s Suhoor” [Abu Dawood, Ibn Hibban and al-Baihaqee; Sahih].

2. Granola and yoghurt

Full of protein and close to no prep time needed! Chomp fast and wash down with a glass of water or milk.

3. Instant oatmeal drink

Add hot water and stir. Plus, it’s really filling too!

4. Peanut butter, banana and honey on toast

Spread fast, bananas optional. Who knew honey and peanut butter would go so well?

#HHWT tip: Use wholemeal bread which is low-GI and high in fibre. That means you’ll feel fuller for a longer time as compared to eating white bread!

5. Scrambled eggs

Full of protein and ready in 2 minutes. Have 2 more minutes to spare? Throw the scrambled eggs on toast and you’re good to go!

6. A cup of milo

Stock up on a few packets of muesli bars before Ramadan. These tiny bars come in handy when you’re rushing for sahur 😄

2 glasses of water if you have no time for anything else.

BONUS: Put a bottle of water and some dates on your bedside table if you ever wake up with one minute to spare. Better to be safe than sorry!
