The past little while has been a whirlwind of emotions (and hormones) for me as I had to say goodbye to my breastfeeding journey with my son. Out of all 3 of my kids, this one was definitely the most physically challenging but alhumdulilah I’m proud of myself for persevering. There’s no denying the physical, emotional, and mental toll breastfeeding has on a woman but also how beautiful the bonding is, making it that much more difficult to end. Even though I’ve done this twice before, I always have this fear that my kids won’t come to me anymore after I’m no longer nursing them. But surely, we both eventually adjust and find a new normal - new ways to bond and new ways to build our relationship of mother and son. Alhumdulilah for this chapter! For those of you currently breastfeeding, know that yes it is hard, but this time too shall pass - the nights are long, but the years are short. You’ll get through it mama ❤️.

The much awaited yearly Eid tradition - a unique cheesecake flavour that I dream up and present to my family for Eid breakfast! This year’s cheesecake was inspired by @mintcandydesigns ‘s halwa bites I tried last year - I’ll be honest, they’re not as “aesthetic” but they are SO delicious! I knew I had to make a cheesecake spin on it.
Details: A biscoff crust with halwa infused into it. The cheesecake is marbled with halwa chunks and topped with whipping cream and halwa [Biscoff Walnut Halwa Cheesecake]

[Creamy Dairy Free Date Shake]

I had my friend try this date shake and she was shocked when I told her there is no milk or cream in it…it’s that creamy! They key ingredient is the soaked cashew which makes a very creamy dairy free base. Try it out for a post-iftar treat.

One of our goals as parents was to help our children understand that Ramadan is the month of Quran & charity. So ever since we’ve had our Ramadan calendar, we’ve used each day to put 1 coin per child, so they can get into the habit of giving sadaqah daily inshaAllah!

How to repurpose your Chapli Meatloaf so it’s a filling suhoor meal! I always have a bag of whole grain sprouted bread in the freezer so it’s easy to while together a healthy filling sandwich. Let me know if you try it out! Also - for those of us who have never had meatloaf before, it is a pretty foreign concept trying to figure out how to eat it 😅 #ramadan #healthyramadan #ramadan2023 #happyramadan #ramadanmubarak #iftar #iftari #suhoor #sehri #mealprep #mealideas #halal #healthyandhalal #hijabi #muslimah #dietitian ...

It can be challenging trying to make healthy choices especially when you are invited to a delicious iftar! Let’s be honest, while the choices are plenty, almost every time veggies are non-existent! The past 2 days we broke our fast with our family and I took roasted veggies the first day and salad the other and guess what, everyone loved it and finished it completely! It’s a great way to make healthy choices without giving up your cultural foods because you are simply adding veggies to your plate instead of focusing on restriction. #healthyramadan #ramadan #happyramadan #iftar #suhoor #healthymuslims #healthyeating #mealprep #torontomuslims #halal #healthyandhalal #halalfoodie ...

[PREGNANCY AND FASTING]
While I feel confident giving Breastfeeding and fasting recommendations, I cannot from a professional standpoint give pregnancy recommendations through the internet- especially since each pregnancy is so unique and the warning signs are not clear. Now once again - that’s not to say that there aren’t women who have been able to do it successfully, but this is a decision you have to come to with your healthcare provider! #ramadan #ramadankareem #ramadanmubarak #healthyramadan #pregnancy #pregnantmoms #muslimmoms #muslimmotherhood #motherhood #suhoor #iftar #hijabi #torontomuslims #muslimsoftheworld

Every single year I share evidence-based recommendations on how to successfully fast and breastfeed, I always get several people very upset that I do this. So leaving this disclaimer here 🥰.
The reality is that there are many women that fast while breastfeeding - and so my recommendations and support is for those women, because frankly there is very limited information on how someone can do this properly. I am a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist and so all my recommendations come from evidence-based information.
My intention or recommendations are in no way stating that you MUST fast - if you watch my full video on YouTube you will see how much emphasis I put on the health of the baby, the health of the mom, and knowing when it is absolutely unsafe to fast while breastfeeding. #ramadan #ramadanmubarak #ramadankareem #fasting #muslimmoms #muslimmotherhood #suhoor #iftar #muslimsoftheworld #hijabi
