Ramadan Meal Planner


I have planned for some time to try and get more organised this Ramadan, and make a meal planner to save the headache of not knowing what to cook on the day and then having to go to the shops on the day to get the one ingredient that’s missing! I’m aiming for a zen-like calm this year, which means thinking ahead. The reality may of course be different, but I can try!

I put out the idea of a meal planner on a fantastic Facebook group I belong to and the response was overwhelming! I am clearly not the only one who feels daunted by the task of preparing delicious food during Ramadan, as well as managing all the other requirements of additional prayers and the physical demands of the long fast.

Due to the ‘hype’ that was created, I have put some extra work into making this planner attractive and easy to use. I hope you find it useful – it is literally what we will be eating this Ramadan, so not everything will be to everyone’s taste – it is very easy to adapt by substituting your own recipes. I would love to hear your feedback and ideas for how to make it better. Please bear in mind this was done in two days so it will not be perfect, and some recipes are not specific on quantities.

    I’m not Muslim so I don’t follow Ramadhan but I do use meal planners every week and it makes such a difference. I only buy what I need, I always have what I need for the meal I’ve planned, I save money and I don’t throw food away. It’s very calming indeed.

      Thanks for your comment, sounds like it would be a good idea to use a meal planner all the time! I do always intend to do one but don’t get round to it

        I make one at the same time every week, the day before I go shopping, just after my son has gone to sleep (so I have a little bit of quiet time! šŸ™‚ )
