23/03/2018 The Fit Hijabi in Fitness / No comments

These are simple, yet healthy breakfast ideas you can make in advance for any occasion, especially with Ramadan coming up!

With these tips from a Muslim registered dietitian Nour Zibdeh, you’ll have a healthy breakfast planned in no time.

Nour has five rules to a healthy breakfast: fiber, protein, fats, fruit/vegetables, and drink 2 glasses of water!

Fiber helps keep you full and your gut stay regular!

So where’s the fiber?

According to WebMD the top 10 sources are:


Whole Grains

Brown Rice

Popcorn (plain no salt!)

Nuts (almonds, pecans, and walnuts have more fiber than other nuts.)

Baked potato (with skin)


Any cereal that has 5 grams of fiber or more in a serving counts as high fiber




Protein delays hunger and provides energy!

So where’s the protein?

According to WebMD the top sources are:



Poultry (skinless, light-meat)

Lean Beef (including tenderloin, sirloin, eye of round)

Milk (low-fat or skim)

Yogurt (low-fat or skim)

Cheese (fat-free or low-fat)


Lean Pork (but us Muslim’s don’t eat that.. lol)



Fats, like fiber, keeps you full for hours!

So where’s the fat?

According to WebMD the top sources are:

Fish (salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines, and albacore tuna are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids)


Seeds (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds)

Nuts (all nuts, but walnuts, especially, deliver heart-healthy fats)

Olive Oil

Eggs (a large, hard-boiled egg has 5.3 grams of fat, most from healthy fats)



Omega-3-Fortified Foods (you can find enriched milk and eggs, bread, and breakfast bars)
