It’s that time of year again and I can hardly believe it – has it really been an entire year since last Ramadan?
In my defense, since the Islamic lunar calendar year is roughly 11 days shorter than the solar year, Ramadan does actually migrate forward a little each year. I’ve also spent more time up in the air a la George Clooney (love that movie) on back-to-back business trips recently, so coming home to realise that the holy month is right around the corner was slightly disorientating. In any case – ready or not, here it comes, and what better way to welcome its arrival than with delicious, nutrient-dense and compassionate food? I hope this year’s Ramadan-themed recipe round-up inspires you for the month to come.
And if all of that wasn’t enough, here’s some recommended reading. Ramadan Kareem, dear readers!
