1. Smoothie Bowl
Smoothies are meant to be slurped through a straw, but what if you make it thicker, somewhat like ice-cream, such that you have to use a spoon instead? Add to that, endless possibilities of fun toppings? You’ll get a nutrient-packed and super-filling smoothie bowl! [caption id="attachment_8387" align="alignnone" width="900"]

2. Old-School Sardine Sandwich
You can never go wrong with this classic, old-time favourite! And did you know that sardines are full of protein, Omega 3, and vitamin D? Make the filling by mixing shallots, lime juice and chilli slices to mashed sardines (eggs optional!). Then slather the filling between two slabs of wholemeal bread for extra fibre! Include some tomatoes and lettuce to your sandwich for added hydration throughout the day.
3. Omelette Souffle
Omelettes are your usual go-tos for a quick sahur meal. But how about we elevate the humble omelette to greater heights by making a fluffy omelette souffle? You can choose a variety of fillings to go with your omelette such as cheese, mushrooms or spinach!
4. Muesli French Toast
Add a new spin to your typical french toast by rolling it in muesli. The result will be a crispy and crunchy sahur treat! Make it even more irresistible by drizzling maple syrup over the toast and topping it off with some fresh fruits. [caption id="attachment_8385" align="alignnone" width="900"]
