Ah, Ramadan. A time where bellies routinely spend about 14 hours a day hollow with emptiness, only to be filled up again for the rest of the evening until sleep. Muslims fast intermittently during Ramadan to fulfill a spiritual duty, but the practice has its own health benefits as well, such as effective weight control, heightened brain power, and even greater longevity.
All that intermittent fasting can sometimes cloud our judgment when it comes time to eat, and in Ramadan, we’re used to squeezing in three meals and lots of snacks within a short time period. Here to teach you a thing or two about your wicked, caloric ways is SUPER/FOODS, the game changer that redefines the way people see indulgence. The fact that rather it being a heavy, fatty-laden calorie fest, it could be a treat for your insides as well as your taste buds. With this in mind, SUPER/FOODS might just be your best friend this Ramadan, especially that you can order your favorite healthful foods through with Zitaat!
First of all, you’re fasting in the summertime, and pairing that with Kuwait’s extreme heat, means it’s never easy. Luckily, SUPER/FOODS has on offer a wide range of beneficial juices, smoothies and infused waters to help you through. Their “Deep Soak” line of infused waters are mixed up with chia seeds and different fruits and veg to reap different nutritional benefits you so require. Our personal favorite is the Blueberry Orange, promoting healthy skin, which we know is important to look after during Ramadan. We also love Blue Potion: their ultra-hydrating and nutrient-dense elixir, providing the necessary tools for a seamless fast in one bottle.
The thing about Ramadan is that after every indulgent iftar meal follows a congregation of sweet endings. Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it? Somewhere between day 1 and day 30, it can get problematic. Instead of having your usual two pieces of qatayef smothered in syrup for the third day in a row, switch it up a little and do your body a favor by ordering up a customizable sweet bowl from SUPER/FOODS. Just open up your Zitaat app and start selecting your base and toppings of choice!
Green Smoothie bowls are a personal favorite, topped with loads of fruit to help catch up on all vitamins you’re missing out on throughout the day. We’re also excited about their newer dessert offerings, dairy free, and served as whole cakes and pies. Mango Passion Cheesecake: with mango and passion fruit, supercharged with maca, Lucuma Banoffee Pie: with banana, sugar-free caramel and coconut, supercharged with lucuma, and Raw Chocolate Cheesecake (self explanatory), to name a few. For more bite-sized delights, try out their new new assortment of handmade vegan chocolate dates.
Who could forget about suhour? The mini late night meal is essential in order to survive the next day of fasting. Instead of loading up on fatty sandwiches and greasy takeaways that would only further dehydrate us (thanks, sodium!) and memories of indulgence from the night before, opt for one of SUPER/FOODS’ gorgeous, healthy savory offerings! Their toasts are a hearty option to create a fulfilling meal, and are topped with dairy-free goodies and spreads making up menu items such as Golden Hummus, Spirulina Edamame, Raw Pesto, Avocado and Beet Hummus, to name a few.
Sweeter toast offerings are on the menu as well, using nut butters and fresh fruit. Artful salads packed in a beautiful jar (perfect for saving!) are on the menu too, so we recommend throwing in one of those with your toast order if you’d like to make it a meal with Zitaat.
Ramadan evenings tend to be quite long, and between gathering and galavanting around, snacks happen. Luckily, SUPER/FOODS has a hack for that as well! From fruit filled nature pots to homemade kale chips, beet chips, and seeded crackers, there’s something for everyone to take their munchies.
All in all, you really have no excuse to be anything but wholesome this Ramadan. With SUPER/FOODS, there’s a healthier alternative to satisfy even your most complex of cravings, and each ingredient that makes up a SUPER/FOODS experience is actually curated to help your fasting, not harm it. Just order on Zitaat to avoid that nasty traffic, and your best self will be at your doorstep in mere moment.
