5 Groceries You Should Purchase This Ramadan

Ramadan is a period of fasting that requires you to refrain from not just food and drink, but also guilty pleasures, usual interests, side talks and uncanny behaviour.

It does not prevent you from getting around your daily lives or activities, rather encourages you to do as you would regularly and be conscious of actions that are not worth emulating, does not speak well of you and would be frown upon by the Koran. 

It is a test of patience and perseverance and the perfect time to enrich one’s self with spiritual teachings, sober reflection and analysis of one’s life.

The fast basically teaches Muslims to curb their excesses and desires and have maximum understanding of what the poor and less privileged go through in order to appreciate more what one has, increase one’s need to be more giving and definitely a better relationship with God.

It is a period of unison, thoughtfulness – Prayers, giving and Sharing. It is the best time to reconnect with God and as stipulated the time where one can guarantee that their past sins has been forgiven and a new slate created.

In the Spirit of that, there are a few things that should also be considered especially what one takes immediately after fast,


1. Rice: 
When engaging in something as serious as the fasting for the Ramadan, you have to bear in mind that will contribute to your health better as opposed to what will interest your appetite more so the likes of Rice are perfect as carbohydrate and the fact that they are slowly absorbed which controls your blood sugar is a perfect add. 


2. Beans:
Protein is always an essential class of food for good health, and for a healthy Digestive system go for food with lower cholesterol level are much more favourable.
