This week is the official start of the Muslim holiday Ramadan. While part of the month-long celebration focuses on the reading of the Quran, it is also marked by fasting from sunup to sundown. During the summer months, fasting can be particularly difficult.

She spoke with Current State’s  Emanuele Berry, about faith, food, and how to prepare for this month’s fast.
