Suhoor foods for more energy

Category: Lonumedhu Lists


The predawn meal ‘suhoor’ or as we locals call it ‘haaru’, is a meal that you really shouldn’t be skipping if you want to feel good and energetic during your fast the next day. After all it’s the meal that’s supposed to keep you going until you break your fast at ‘iftar’ time.

Below we’ve summed up a few foods you can include in this special meal for sustained energy and hydration.



Unlike simple carbs like white flour and white rice, complex carbs like oats release energy slowly. Enjoy a bowl of oats with milk and a little bit of honey for a boost of energy that’ll make fasting so much easier.


Milk & Yoghurt

Including calcium-rich products like milk and yogurt will help you feel hydrated the next day. Enjoy it in a smoothie with your favourite fruits.


Fruits & vegetables

Fruits and vegetables are good sources of energy, sugar and fiber. They can help with constipation and if you go for fruits and vegetables with a high water content, like watermelon, they can help you with hydration too.



Proteins are the building blocks of life and they can help you ward off hunger pangs the next day. Choose lean meats like poultry and fish.



Last but not the least, hydrate yourself with plenty of water, especially if you’ve had salty foods that can leave you feeling thirsty.
