Olive oil and what to drink?
What to drink on a true fast and how can I use Olive oil. Olive oil was on the Dainel fast from the begining. I would like to be true to the fast. I need to know that I'm doing what God said to be a true Daniel Fast. Alva
Thanks for your e-mail Alva.
What we now do as a Daniel fast was created by Rev. Elmer Towns, in his book Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough. He followed the principles of Daniel's partial fast in Daniel chapter 1.
The Hebrew word translated in English as vegetables, means food planted for harvest. Olives are a fruit that is planted for harvest.
We prefer extra virgin olive oil and Colza. Canola and other healthy non-animal fats are OK in moderation. Use as little oil as possible. French fries have too much oil. Spray some Pam or olive oil on your fries and bake them. We use olive oil in the place of butter. Add a little salt if you like salted butter.
You can drink unsweetened fruit and vegetable juices, because they are made from fruit and vegetables that are planted for harvest. We avoid all processed foods, like white rice, white flour, white sugar, and artificial sweeteners. Water is the best thing you can drink.
