These Daniel Fast lunch and dinner recipes might be just what you need to jumpstart your new year. My husband and I do a one-week Daniel Fast every year in January, but we enjoy eating that way so much that I incorporate many Daniel recipes into our rotation the rest of the year, too.
During this fast, you will experience a more natural way of eating, similar to a paleo diet. The recipes are heavy on fruits and veggies, no meat, and very little processed food.
When you’re finished with this fast, you’ll feel healthier and more energetic. You only have to get a little more creative with the foods you can eat. I'm betting at least a few of these recipes will be on your regular rotation, too.
The Book of Daniel taught us many things, but one of the most important was to give thanks and appreciation through fasting. You can learn more about the spiritual aspect of this fast by checking out Susan Gregory's book, The Daniel Fast. One of our pastors at my church spoke on fasting recently and it was amazing. You can watch on-demand here.
The best part is, the eating portion of the fast does not have to be difficult. There are plenty of Daniel Fast recipes that work for both lunch and dinner, which means following the fast for every meal of the day can be easy and delicious.
