2. Break your fast with fresh, seasonal fruits, devoid of sendha namak or sugar.

3. Incorporate green, leafy vegetables that you are not allowed to consume while you’re fasting.

4. Have a bowl of yoghurt after breaking a fast as it is full of nutrients and probiotics.

5. Introduce lentils, other grains, and non-vegetarian food into your diet gradually as they may be difficult to digest if you consume them immediately after breaking your fast.
