High fibre cereals make the top breakfast choice for Muslims during Ramadan. Suhoor (early breakfast) is the most important meal of the day, but sometimes plain muesli or cereal with milk can be boring. Add variety and improve the nutritive value of your breakfast with these ingredients:
A fan of dairy? Try mixing breakfast cereal with yoghurt instead of milk for a change. You can match your favourite flavours or go with plain yoghurt and benefit from the probiotics!
Nuts & Seeds
Adding nuts such as chopped almonds and walnuts to your cereal can provide enough protein and fibre to help you feel full. They can also improve the taste of your cereal and awaken your appetite! For an extra dose of Omega-3 fatty acids, add a tablespoon of chia seeds.
Raisins and chopped dates go very well with both cold and hot cereal. If you prefer freshly cut fruits, go with fresh blueberries, peaches or strawberries for a burst of colour. Sliced bananas are also great with cereal, and can definitely help to fill you up!
Just a little bit goes a long way! For a dose of sweet without all the processed sugar, drizzle some honey and you’re in for a sweetened, lower-carb breakfast bowl.
Turn your boring bowl of cereal into a soup dish! You can make cereal soup with different cereals such as barley, rice, spelt or oats, or you can add your favourite vegetables if you prefer. You can prepare the soup the night before and add your cereals in the morning as you heat it up.
Spice up any bowl of cereal by sprinkling in your own spices. While cinnamon might be the most popular choice, nutmeg, garlic powder, mustard and turmeric are also great options.
