Ugh....... I started out OK, breaking my fast with three dates and then I drank a Canada Dry and then ate two Reese's Peanut Butter cups and then a Snickers and then I ate a piece of chocolate cake that was left over from a baby shower that we had at work today and needless to say I feel horrible  sigh  No one should ever eat so much sugar in less than ten minutes!  This is what happens when I have to break fast at work smack

Awwww, Sr. Sarah, sorry to hear that, yeah that doesn't sound too good. Hope tomorrow holds better options for you.


Sis Jannah - cheetos? Wow, that's a new one, but the tandoori chicken sounds good, but maybe only 2 pieces next time 'round.

I'm sorry, but that is one of the funniest posts I have read in a while.... Cheesy


Sweetie, make sure you have a sandwich and a bottle of ice cold water ready for iftar if you have to break fast at work. You are both crazy!

When I was expecting my first, I used to crave pizza and coke.....I'd break fast with the traditional date and water, and then eat pizza!!! I must have eaten a pizza a day for the entire month!!! My manager used to find it highly amusing, especially when I would occasionally finish my meal off with a double chocolate fudge cake slice!!! They were all waiting for me to get fat.....they continue to wait Cheesy

But no, avoid sugary foods when breaking fast, it only ends in nausea!!!

Salaam Alaykum Sister Sarah,
I hope that the rest of your Ramadan fasts go well and are accepted insha'Allah.

I usually try and separate the 'iftar' and the 'dinner'.... knowing that you only have a date or two, and some water to break the fast makes it a much more spiritual experience. I eat the main meal after Maghreb then.

Also as Sister Fouzia pointed out, it does not hurt to have a meal ready; though with the disruption in the sleep etc, I can understand if there is not enough time in the morning to prepare it. It may be worth it to prepare it the night before in that case.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Some of the 6000 other people reading this today should benefit, and not take a head-long dive into the sugar bowl insha'Allah  Wink

LOL. This was funny to read. I hope you do a little better next time. I didn't eat much sugar yesterday, but I did eat more than I wanted to. I broke fast with water....and steak and potatoes. Not exactly the most frugal of meals huh  Tongue. But today I just broke fast with three grapes and water. There aren't a lot of places that sell dates here in Columbus, so I figured grapes and dates are like cousins or something. Maybe I get SOME credit.

I didn't mention this in my diary, but I followed our Iftar with a lamb shank that my mother had prepared. It was light and the way my mom made it, the soup/gravy was quite healthy too. Yes, as Br. Khan said, this was eaten after Maghrib Salah.

Sorry to hear that Sis J - if we do have pakoras (I think they are liked by desis because they are small little treats that are tasty, you can have several without being full or at least a few if they are chicken ones), they are usually those onion ones, and yes sometimes they do have a full or good-sized chili in them, but my Amma or khala's point those out so I avoid that sudden "fire-in-the-mouth" sensation, as I am sure you know now.

Wow, Sis J, I guess you are Amreekan afterall Wink Cheesy Grin I mean, yeah if they were too greasy, that is a turn-off, but usually they should be battered and light - the chicken ones should be like chicken-fingers, but I think ideally, for a light iftar, the onion ones are great - we even get them at the Indian restaurants/stores here, they are dry and maybe a little crunchy too. Big thumbs down for that aunty  Wink

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA, bhaya, that is hilarious! In all seriousness though, it is hard to balance the iftar and dinner, as they are even closer together time-wise. I think the Iftar should be light, just dates and a drink (milk, water) and then have a nice meal - then we can still follow the Hadith that states one=third food, one=third fluid, one-third air.

What not eat for iftar... ice cream.  My nieces can't do without it.  Chocolate, vanilla, etc.  I shudder!  They try to tempt me, but I can't be moved. Not that I don't like ice cream - once in a while and its only vanilla. But ice cream for iftar? No, no, no...

But then again, they are Canadian teenagers. Perhaps, I shouldn't be surprised!

Salaams,

Is there a way of making pakora in an oven? Or do they have to be deep fried? Myself and Y  (husband) are on a health kick and don't eat any fried stuff at present. However, I can tell he is yearning for a "taste of home" at iftar time.. I'm sure I read somewhere of how to make low-fat onion bhajis in the oven, but can't remember now..

Sorry for the thread hijack!!

I don't care what I eat at Iftar but I hate it when I overeat.. which happens quite often unfortunately.

As salamu alaykum,

When I first became Muslim, I used to break my fast with Doritos.  Now it is 3 dates and a Gatorade, although I might eat a handful of chips when my husband isn't looking. Grin

You know reading this thread is like reading a kids dream come true!

When I was little I promised myself I would buy every single chocolate bar available in the sweet shop...and when I grew up that is just what I did, and apparently I'm not the only one!!!!  Cheesy

Lets face it if this is how we eat how are we possibly going to convince our children to eat healthy!!!!

I asked that because usually we eat a full dinner after Maghrib, even at the masjid. So you're pretty much going on an empty stomach for an extra hour and half or so, MashAllah. I was having a hard time the other day waiting the last 20mins. I had kabob the other day after a very very long time, sooooo delicious. Ameen.
