Today marks the first day of Ramadan. The holy month of fasting for Muslims around the world. I am not Muslim myself but I try to observe this holiday the best I can, to honor the culture of those around me in Morocco. It is not a easy month and I will admit I am daydreaming of being on a beach and eating cheeseburgers with family. But today I’m choosing to embrace this time of fasting, meditation, mindfullness, and a month to give your stomach a rest and thank the universe for what you have.
I am already looking forward to ftur, breaking the fast at sundown.
Two of my favorite foods.
1. Simply, Cherries!
2. Watermelon, mint, cucumber salad. Serve with balsamic. mmmmm
