Are you in need of a dish for Iftar? Well, then you’ve come to the right place! Iftar is the meal that breaks your fast each night after sunset during Ramadan. The initial fast is usually broken with a date and a glass of water. After the initial fast, worshippers will break for prayer and then return for a larger and more substantial feast. Iftar is a time known for celebrating with food, family, and friends and is one of the most significant points of the day during Ramadan!
The Ramadan Spread, made with Coachella’s Best Organic Dates, is an easy to make and satisfying way to break your fast. It is the perfect mix of sweet and salty and is full of nutrients to help keep you feeling satisfied longer as well as give you the energy you need to make it through your next fast. Dates are particularly beneficial during Ramadan because they are high in sugar and vitamins such as magnesium and potassium and are also an excellent source of fiber and carbohydrates. These nutrients can help alleviate lethargy, headaches, and low blood sugar which often occur during fasting. They are also a great source of energy. Dates are also known to help with digestion and can prevent an upset stomach when eating large amounts of food after a long period without eating.
This Ramadan Spread is a great way to replenish your body after fasting and will keep you satisfied longer. The best part of this Ramadan Spread is that it is completely customizable. Make your spread unique to your Iftar celebration, choose ingredients that you like best but don’t forget those dates!
