Hey girl hey. And boy.
Can you believe that a week of Ramadan has passed already? Around this time, we lose a little bit of the motivation we had at the beginning and suhoor preparation sometimes narrows down to a drink of water before dusk. I personally love suhoor prep (because food, duh 😂) but it could get hectic sometimes especially when you have to get up early to make it. So here are 3 simple and on-the-go suhoor ideas that will bring you the energy you need while not needing you to wake up earlier. For non-muslims reading, these ideas are perfect for on-the-go breakfast ideas. I’m definitely making these after Ramadan is over. Before we get started, this is a collab with autumngirl who’s also making a Ramadan post. Check out her post on habits you should get rid of this Ramadan here. Anyways, let’s get starteddd.
- Peanut Butter Oats Energy Balls
I recently saw this on a youtube video and thought I’d try it out. What I love about this is that it only requires a fridge (I can’t deal with heating things), all the ingredients I had at home AND I can make a lot of these in advance and just serve them to go for suhoor or breakfast. These are perfect snacks too and you could add something else on suhoor as well like milkshakes or another meal with this on the side. It has so many health benefits and will keep you full so definitely try it out!
What You Need
- peanut butter
- chocolate chips
- start with a bowl of oats
- add enough peanut butter so that all oats are caught in the butter (if that makes sense)
- add honey and chocolate chips
- mix together and refrigerate for 10-20 minutes
- take a spoonful and add pressure with your hands to keep the ball form
- eat it right away or refrigerate for up to a week!
I was fasting when I made these but according to my siblings, it tastes like snickers! If you’re allergic to peanuts or just don’t like this recipe, we have two more to go!
2. Avocado & Eggs
I haven’t tried this yet but it looks really good! Apparently, this combo is very good together and it takes a little more effort but scrambled eggs only take about 2 minutes. There are many different variations but I’ll just share two.
Egg in Avocado
What You Need
- Preheat oven to 425 F or 218 C
- Slice avocados in hald
- Crack and egg on each
- Bake for 15-20 minutes
- Sprinkle with topping of your choice
This recipe looks super simple and I would definitely recommend it!
Scrambled Eggs + Avocado Toast
What You Need
- Topping of your choice (recommended: feta cheese, tomatoes..etc)
- Crack the number of eggs you need and whisk together with a fork or whisk
- Pour into a pan with a bit of olive oil on medium heat
- Stir the eggs until dry and ready
- Toast your toast (weird sentence) and spread avocado onto it
- Add your scrambled eggs and any toppings you want!
3. Greek Salad + Hummus
You guysss. This is the perfect recipe for when you have salad leftover on iftar and want to turn it into suhoor. All you need to do is add some feta cheese and have a hummus platter beside it. This combo is super delicious together and really simple to prepare. You can serve on toast or eat with normal pita bread.
What You Need
- Feta Cheese
- Vegetables of your choice
- Salad dressing
- Hummus toppings (oil, lemon, cumin)
- Chop up your vegetables + feta cheese cubes and add your salad dressing
- Prepare a bowl of hummus (I just get pre-made ones from Costco)
- Serve on toast or on a plate.
This recipe is perfect because you can prepare the salad and hummus in advance and just serve it to go for suhoor or breakfast.
Anddd that’s all for today.
