Wishing you a Heart-healthy Ramadan!

Starting this evening, millions of Muslims around the world will observe the month of Ramadan. This is a time when many will fast from sunrise to sunset, refraining from food and drink. It is also a time of self-reflection, so indeed this could be an opportunity to take a closer look at your eating habits and make your meals at Suhoor and Iftar interesting, varied and healthier.
