The best part about this month is that all families come together and cherish this beautiful month with each other on that Iftar and Sehri table, and Dalda has always had a seat on that table, in every household.

Now that Ramadan is over taking away with it the excuse for our never-ending samosa & pakora parties and all other unhealthy cravings. Now it's time to get back in shape, take care of our body and make it feel good. So here are a few tips for you to give your health and body a much deserved post-Ramadan boost.



1.    HYDRATION. As Ramadan ends, summer is about to knock our doors and with changing climate we can expect some scorching days ahead. Adding certain fruits to your breakfast can help increase your level of hydration that can keep you active through the day. For example, fruits such as apples, blueberries, oranges, peaches, pineapples, plums and raspberries contain over eighty percent water. Melons such as cantaloupe and watermelon have some of the highest water content, at more than 90 percent.  And let's not forget about yogurt, which is a great way to get calcium, protein, and carbs, as well as fluids to keep you hydrated. Even if it's not Ramadan, our mothers' advice to have yogurt for breakfast still holds true!                                                                            



2.    EXERCISE.  Yes, you read that right. Do not be a couch potato in summers, just simply stand and power-walk, which burns some calories on its own, therefore walking would have a powerful impact on your body as well. So, why not take advantage of summer break to hit that weight goal you’ve been dreaming of?  A simple walk around the park, or even climbing up the stairs of your apartments can give you that boost.


3.    EAT RIGHT.  Granted we are all tempted to order oily and spicy food that we so badly crave, but in the spirit of making healthier choices, let’s avoid eating street food altogether. In fact use Dalda Olive Oil at home to cook your favorite items! Do you know? Dalda Olive Oil isn’t just helpful in lowering your chances of getting the bad kind of cholesterol, it is rich in anti-oxidants, which would help you stay more active and not let the laziness settle in.
