Thanks for your wise words

Thank you so much for your Godly wisdom. On Thurs. night, God spoke to me about doing a 24- day Daniel fast. I have fasted a few times before, but knew I needed more information to do this well. Reading through your info and question/answer section has answered a lot for me. I know that dairy needs to be out for me. I was eating butter, and need to stop that. I also ate white rice today because it was in the fridge, and after two days of mostly fruit with veggies, I needed something more solid. I am glad to know I can eat some of my homemade bread and potatoes. I will also be glad to add some light dressing, or oil and lemon to my salads.
Thank you again for your wise words.
Your sister in Christ, Debbie
Thank you for your kind words Debbie. We appreciate hearing from you.

What about whey?

What about products that have whey? I didn't know what whey was when I went shopping for food for the Daniel Fast. When I purchased the foods for my Fast I made sure that it had no egg or milk and sugars. But I have noticed some of them had whey in it. So I decided to look up what it is and it is that watery clear liquid that separates itself from Milk. You will find it in yogarts, cottage cheese and other milk products. So after researching I found out that it is plasma separated from the milk itself when it curddles. So now I don't know if this is allowed since so many products include this. Should I consider this an animal product since it comes from milk which does come from animals. If you have any information about this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and G-d Bless!
Jasmine
You are right, Jasmine. We are avoiding all animal products, and whey is an animal dairy product.

Daniel Diet as a lifestyle

Hello,

I am a vegetarian and believe that the Lord has told me that the Daniel diet is supposed to be a permanent lifestyle for me.

Do you know of anyone else who maintains the Daniel diet 24/7?

I am struggling a bit with the fact that on this diet (which is basically a vegatarian diet with a few more restrictions) I can't drink wine on ocassion e.g out to dinner with my husband nor have a normal desert- ever...

Do you know of anyone else who permanently does the Daniel diet and how strictly they adhere to it- I know that this is an issue to talk to the Lord about but would like to know what others have been instructed as well.

Most of my questions were answered on your Questions & Answers page.

Thank you for all of this information on your site- very helpful!

God Bless,
Tulani
Yes, there are people doing the Daniel Fast as a lifestyle. Our privacy policy is that we don't share any email addresses from our readers with any others. This post could be a good place to check back and read comments from other readers, who desire to do the Daniel Fast/Diet long term.

As we've researched the Daniel Fast Diet, Vegan Diet, and related nutritional issues, we've found some issues that you should be aware of; the Vegan Diet is low in Omega 3, calcium, vitamin B12 and iron. So it might be wise to take supplements that include Omega 3, calcium, vitamin B12 and iron. Short term, these deficiencies aren't much of a problem. Long term, they could be serious. Please research the Vegan Diet further for yourself.

Cereal and milk for breakfast?

Is there any kind of cereal and milk we can have for breakfast? Inez
Sorry milk is an animal product, so it should be avoided. One option we use is oatmeal, cooked in the microwave with some raisins. It is yummy and has no processed sugars. There are many good whole grain cereals. You can experiment with cereals, like eating them with natural orange juice. I mix them into my natural peanut butter.

Whole grain products are allowed and can be identified by the ingredient list. Typically if the ingredient lists "whole wheat", "rolled oats", or "whole corn" as the first ingredient, the product is a whole grain food item. Another way to identify whole grains in the foods you eat is to look in the nutritional facts information and check if the food item contains dietary fiber. If it contains a significant amount, it most likely contains whole grains.

Daniel Fast/Diet Recipes and Cookbooks

My church is going on the Daniel fast on the 13th of this month. This is my first time doing this and hearing about it. I wanted to know if there are any web sites that have recipes for this certain fast. All I know to do is basically buy a lot of fruits and veggies. Therefore, are there any recipes out there that can help me out?
Thank you. Shaunta
