The Daniel Fast is a diet of sorts, where you eat only the kind of things eaten by Daniel from the Bible. There is not a quantity limit, but quality recommendations.
Daniel ate no meat, dairy, sugar or leavened bread and drank no alcohol. You’ll find 12 easy and healthy recipes here to help you get started. This is a great diet for anyone who wants to just eat a little healthier!
Our church usually does a fast in January where we pray about growing closer to God in the coming year. Our fast is only for a week or so, but some do this fast for longer, so you can look for more recipes by searching.
Cleansing your body of the toxins in many of the foods we avoid on the Daniel Fast is said to have a wonderful effect on your thinking, focusing, and improving your prayer life.
There are several books about the Daniel Fast, too, like The Daniel Fast: Feed Your Soul, Strengthen Your Spirit, and Renew Your Body. Though there are others on Amazon, I have just found this one to be the most comprehensive. Good luck with your fast!
