Ramadhan is here so I thought I'd share with you my Ramadhan pantry list. The idea is basic ingredients that are healthy and nutritious. By keeping healthy food stocked up in your kitchen it will help maintain healthy eating. I hope inshAllah by the end of the month me and my family's eating habits have changed for the better from the quantity of food we eat to the quality.
Zam Zam water (the perks of Living in Makkah alhamdolilah!)
Beans & legumes
For me meat can be too bloating and heavy especially for Ramadhan, it is not something I wish to have often so I'm stocking up on plenty of beans and legumes as they make a great alternative to meat, they are packed full of protein, high in antioxidant and fills you much quicker.
Beans: red kidney beans, munga beans,black beans.
Throw these in your cereal or porridge, add them to some deserts or even have for snacking, nuts are really healthy and tasty so a great addition to any pantry.
Spices & Herbs
From my knowledge (which isn't much lol) the majority of spices on this list have some form of medicinal properties but I'm sure there is more and you can't get enough of spices to be honest so this is just a basic list.
Ideally these should have no added salt/sugar or preservatives.
Tomatoes (Fact it's been proven that canned tomatoes are fresher than store bought tomatoes )
Oils & Condiments
Apple Cider Vinegar
