We love eggs on everything - fried rice, instant noodles, you name it. But have you stopped to wonder about its health benefits? The next time you're having soft boiled eggs with toast, remember that eggs are loaded in protein, which is an important macronutrient to fuel and build your body mass. It also has other health benefits like decreasing your risk of heart disease, repairing body tissues, and keeping your immune system nice and healthy. Since it's inexpensive and versatile, you can enjoy however you like, from scrambled to hard-boiled.
5. OatsIf you'd like to make an easy meal for sahur, you can try the no-cook method the night before by making your instant oats and leaving it in the fridge overnight. Oats are rich in vitamins and minerals that help you store energy throughout the day. You can top it with fruits of your choice like bananas or berries for sweetness!
Strawberries, blueberries and raspberries - it's tough to find a berry that we don't love. Besides adding a pop of colour to our oatmeals, pancakes and cereals, it's a great source of nutrients despite how tiny they are! Rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, and fibre, these yummy treats can also help to regulate your blood sugar, reduce hunger and combat inflammation. Make sure to enjoy a handful of berries for sahur before you start your day!
There's no denying that bananas make an amazing snack for sahur. Loaded in high fibre, potassium and natural sugar, you can easily add banana slices to your oatmeal, peanut butter toast and pancakes. Thanks to the soluble fibre content, it can also slow down your digestion and help you to stay full for a long time. Besides being kind to your digestive system, this popular superfood can help you maintain a good healthy heart, regulate blood pressure and increase your metabolism.
There's a reason why avocados made its way into the superfood category. Favoured for its rich and creamy flavour, each spoonful is packed with vitamins C, E, K, and B-6 as well as potassium and omega-3 fatty sides. Don't worry about its high monounsaturated fat content because it's considered a 'good and healthy fat', similar to the ones you'll find in nuts and olive oil, which can decrease your cholesterol level when you consume it in moderation. The best part is, avocados are pretty versatile and you can enjoy it on its own or stuffed with eggs or vegetables.
Don't you just love seeing a dollop of thick and creamy yoghurt on top of pancakes and puddings? Available in most supermarkets, it's a low-calorie superfood that's rich with nutrients and calcium. Besides being absolutely yummy on its own (with fruit toppings, of course), enjoying a cup of yoghurt daily can reduce the risk of high blood pressure, strengthen your bones and build muscle. If you're exercising regularly after iftar, it also makes a good pre and post-workout snack!
The superfood family would be incomplete without salmon! Aside from being a good source of protein, it has loads of vitamin B12, potassium, and omega-3 fatty acids as well as low in calorie and saturated fat. Whether you enjoy pan-seared salmon with crispy skin or glazed salmon, it comes with a range of health benefits that includes improving your immunity system, balancing your blood pressure, and keep you full for longer.
These healthy food will not only balance out your body with the nutrients it needs, but they're also delicious! ?
