How should you break the fast?
After a full day of fasting, our bodies will have a hard time digesting heavy food. Therefore, it's important to break the fast gradually, starting with rehydration by drinking fluids and then reintroducing energy with simple carbohydrates. Only after breaking the fast properly with a piece of cake and a cup of water or tea should you proceed to a regular meal.
