I’m talking about keeping your engine running smoothly, taking it back to basics and pulling macros from real whole foods. It’s really nothing fancy, just food that works!

Each meal in my Ramadan Diet has been designed to help you sustain your energy levels and is high in protein, keeping you feeling satisfied for longer. These protein-rich meals will also help prevent cravings for the delectable Ramadan fare your family and friends are bound to bring into the home. Each recipe contains a higher-than-usual amount of calories as you are unable to spread them throughout the day during this time.

Start off your day on the right foot with this Coconut and Almond Flex Bowl from my Ramadan Diet, which has been designed to help you sustain your energy levels, and is high in protein to keep you feeling satisfied for longer – plus it’s packed with familiar flavours you love, like dates, almonds and coconut. 

470 CALORIES

1/2 date (cut up)
2 egg whites
20g whey protein (vanilla or chocolate)
1/2 cup water
8 chopped almonds
5 Tbsp desiccated (unsweetened) coconut

METHOD:
Cook oats in the microwave or soak in boiling water, add 2 egg whites to oats and stir, microwave for 5-10 seconds at a time, stirring well, until egg whites are cooked into oats. Egg whites cannot be seen or tasted at this stage as the oats have fully absorbed them. In a shaker, mix whey protein with 1/2 cup water or coconut water.
