Break the fast with this protein rich vegetable slice curtesy of the Natural Nutritionist  along with some cooked and cooled rice made with coconut milk.

Cooking and cooling the rice creates resistant starch which is so important for our gut health. The added coconut milk will provide us with healthy fats to keep us going.
