Swapping fried cheese rolls with grilled ones, reducing salt and sugar intake and ditching jallab juice for a glass of cool water could be the key for a healthier Ramadan – both for the body and for the soul, recent research shows.Sugary beverages such as the popular jallab juice – grape and date molasses diluted with rose water and topped with nuts – are best kept to a maximum of a glass per day.A balanced meal should also feed the system enough nutrients from each category: carbohydrates, proteins, fats, water, vitamins and minerals. For Suhoor, nuts and other dried fruits that contain healthy oils are recommended, as well as dates, porridge and cereal.
