You will love these healthy Daniel Fast meals. Planning is your friend when participating in this fast.
The Daniel Fast is not a complete fast from food, but simply an easy way of eliminating unhealthy foods from your diet for a specified time.
These Daniel Fast meals will help you to jumpstart your nutritious eating plan any time of year.
What is the Daniel Fast?
In the Book of Daniel, he ate no meat, dairy, sugar, or leavened bread and drank no alcohol, which is where the concept of The Daniel Fast began.
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 couple of weeks or so, but some do this fast for longer.
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. I can vouch for that!
There are several books about the Daniel Fast, too. Check out Susan Gregory's books. Though there are others on Amazon, I have just found this one to be the most comprehensive.
NOTE: In the last couple of years, there have been quite a few books published about the Daniel Fast that include meat, sugar, and other things that were not intended to be part of the fast.
Please check out any books you think might help you as it's frustrating to buy a book only to see the recipes are not truly Daniel Fast friendly.
You could also try an online study. Here's a good example from the Bible app.
Susan Gregory also has a workbook that I will be using this year for the first time. It's perfect for group study. If you'd like to join me, please shoot me an email!
Good luck with your fast!
