Foods that will keep you filled for a long time?

Ramadan is coming up in a few weeks. And this time, fasting hours will span over 12 hours (I think). If it were still summer and I could just spending the days bumming around the house reading books, napping, and surfing the net, I really wouldn't mind. Minimal energy usage. But, unfortunately school will be in full swing and not only will I be taking classes, I will also be teaching them! And working a side job. And running errands all over our gigantic campus. Energy usage suddenly went way up.
So what kinds of foods should I be eating? Preferably things that won't make me thirsty, since we can't drink anything while fasting. How much should I aim to drink too? I used to try to down a lot of water before fasting, but that always made me feel a little sick. I live in the southeast US, so it gets pretty warm. I figure if I stay indoors with the AC most of the time, I'll be okay...
(On a side note: I tend to get shaky when (I'm assuming) my sugar gets low. (My hands will tremble.) I don't necessarily feel "hungry" at the time, but eating helps the shakiness go away. So foods with slow-burning sugars?)
Anyway, thank you! :)
