Thank God for the Daniel fast!!!

Sguardo in alto...
Image by Alessandro Pinna via Flickr
"I have been on this fast for 4 days now (which I commited to doing 7 days)and I can truly say that I have been tempted to go back to my regular way of living. The more I have been tempted the more I have been praying and asking God for help. Since being on this fast I have been able to hear God clearly and he has told me the things that I need to work on within myself. I understand now that my eyes are the open doorway to sin and doing things outside the will of God. Thank God for the Daniel fast!!! My life will never be the same." Name withheld

Kim's Whole Grain Breakfast


Photo by Kim
Hello again, I just wanted to share something that I have found that I like to eat for breakfast or lunch during the Daniel fast. Smuckers Natural Peanut Butter (ingredients Peanuts and salt - but you have to stir it real good because the oil all rises to the top, then refrigerate and the oil wont return) & thinly sliced banana on either an organic
Brown Rice Cake (ingredients Organic Whole Grain Brown Rice and salt)or on a Ryvita Whole Grain Rye Crispbread (ingredients Whole Grain Rye Flour, Sesame Seeds, and Salt). I like it best on the crispbread but really both are good. Its also quick and easy to prepare at home or at my desk at work. I also like popcorn popped in canola oil with salt. I just pop it in a pan like mom used to do before the microwave was invented :0) Kim by iPhone

Garlic boiled peanuts


South Carolina Boiled Peanut in Shell. Image via Wikipedia
Not really a recipe, but today I knew we were going to the flea market, so I decided to get some garlic boiled peanuts... very satisfying and within the fast guidelines. Kim in Florida, USA
Thanks Kim. We might have to make some boiled peanuts at home! Used to get those on the highway south of Asheville, NC when we lived in South Carolina. Mike

Slow-Cooker Black Bean-Mushroom Chili Recipe


Slow-Cooker Black Bean-Mushroom Chili Recipe - ACE Healthy Recipes - American Council on Exercise

Black beans, earthy mushrooms and tangy tomatillos combine with a variety of spices and smoky chipotles to create a fantastic full-flavored chili. It can simmer in the slow cooker all day, which makes it perfect for a healthy supper when the end of your day is rushed.

This is a good recipe, but there are a few ingredients to leave off, when doing the Daniel fast diet. Remember we avoid all animal products, which includes dairy items.

Doctor asking me to loose about 80 lb. this year, did'nt notice my body changes. also need prayer just because i want to be and get stonger spritul, need GOD in every way, want to walk, talk and see thing by faith.
Name withheld

The original Fast by Daniel in Chapter 1 didn't help him lose weight, but this anti-junk food Daniel Fast by Rev. Elmer Towns does seem effective at helping people shed those nasty pounds that stick to us. I lost 25 lbs in 2000, by walking three times a day for 20 min each. Learn more healthy habits at http://Fit.Farho.net It is our fitness website.

Let's pray: Heavenly Father, we thank You for our friends who are doing their best to say no to the flesh and its appetite for junk food. Jesus, You know what it felt like to be tempted. Be our strong tower of refuge, when we are tempted to blow it and eat that food we should avoid. Fill us with the power of your Holy Spirit, so that His delicious fruit of love would flow from us and surround us. Deliver us from temptation! In the Name of Jesus, our risen Savior and Lord.

Nancy's Daniel Fast

Hummus from The Nile restaurant, Chicago.
Hummus image via Wikipedia

Hi, I just wanted to send my comments that the Lord has advised me on during a Daniel fast.

"Royal Foods" also includes anything that the individual would find indulgent. For example, I love hummus, so even if it might be okay for another individual, I know that if I were to eat it during the fast, I wouldn't be keeping my commitment in denying the flesh. Same thing with peanut butter, it's a favorite I eat daily, so I avoid it during the fast. It's not always a list of foods that will prevail, but the underlying reason we choose them. If I'm eating for mere sustenance, then fine, but if I'm eating a big bowl of fruit salad, for me personally, that's hardly denying the flesh. We must remain prayerful in choosing the foods individually. Thank you. Nancy
Thank you Nancy. That is a great personal application of the Daniel Fast. We all need to listen and obey as God speaks to our hearts. Please, let us avoid judging others for applying the Daniel Fast in a way that is different from ours.

Marcy's cinnamon tea

My church family and I are starting the Daniel fast and I wanted to share some options we are using.
Ceylon cinnamon (Cinnamomum Verum) and Indones...Image via Wikipedia
Instead of coffee or tea, we are using cinnamon tea. You can find the sticks at any grocer or health food store. Boil till reddish and keep adding water each time you run out till no red is in the water. I usually drink cinnamon tea for a whole week before I use new sticks. Great Detoxer. I also use Orange or Lemon tree leaves. Boil for 20 min. and drink with honey. Also, we like spearmint leaf tea. Also found in health food stores, or you can grow your own. Very hearty growers. Boil and drink with honey.

All of these Teas can be had either hot or cold on ice.

Thank you Marcy!

Cactus Salad or "Ensalada de Nopal":
You can find ready to cook Cactus "Nopales" at your Grocer or Health food stores.
  • Dice cactus and rinse well. It will be gooey! 
  • Cook in skillet with enough water to cover cactus. 
  • Drain, rinse, and cool. 
  • Finely cut 1 bunch Cilantro, 2 Small Tomatoes and 1 Large Onion. 
  • Mix all ingredients together and spead on baked corn tortilla and eat as a "Chalupa". 
You can spead Pinto Beans on Corn Tortilla then add Cactus Salad. Or you can eat it as a wrap using Whole Wheat Tortilla by adding salad only, or adding beans and salad.
Any of these can be had with any picante salsa or diced fresh or canned Jalapenos.

Thank you Marcy. Any other recipes you care to share? Mike

My church allows fish and chicken

Icon of the PentecostImage via Wikipedia
I am currently doing the 21 day fast with my church, but we have fish, chicken, and tuna on our list, but is this considered a meat?
Thanks,
Name withheld

We advise people to do the fast as their church leaders have decided. In this case you may decide to avoid fish, but don't be judgmental of those who are allowed to eat it.

Normally, we avoid all animal products, so fish and poultry are not allowed. Some people are not ready to do a standard Daniel Fast/Diet. They have concerns about protein or some other issue, that keeps them from the Vegan diet required by the Daniel Fast/Diet.

For these people, we advise them to do a modified Daniel Fast/Diet, allowing eggs or non-fat dairy products. Some decide to follow the Eastern Orthodox Church application, allowing fish products.  Some decide to allow lean skinless chicken breast meat.

So your church had the wisdom to allow these foods, so those who cannot do the normal Daniel Fast can still partake with a clear conscience. It also precludes the worries of those who are concerned about adequate protein for manual labor.

We all fail. Ask God to forgive you. Continue the best you can. He knows and loves us and will help us to enjoy the foods that are allowed.

Googled Daniel Fast

Bible Study with Plano friendsImage by [[Neo]] via Flickr
I chose a 40 day Daniel Fast to begin 2008. Hadn't really heard much about it. Just chose it from the book of Daniel.  A few days after starting the fast, I began studying the book of Daniel with Beth Moore in Women's Bible study and she challenged us to do a "Daniel Fast". I felt like that was a confirmation. I kind of just made up my rules as I went. I said it was whatever grows naturally.

I decided to do it again for 2010 and was being asked questions by all of my friends. Amazingly, when I googled Daniel Fast - Your website answers and agrees with all I had planned. I believe it is revelatory from the Lord. I also believe it is powerful to break the strongholds in our flesh.  Bless you for your hard work on this great website!
In Christ,
Kim
Thank you Kim, for your encouraging words. Hope you have a great Daniel Fast this year too.

Steamed Broccoli or Fresh Corn

Bake potatoes in oven as you normally would, but coat lightly with olive oil before wrapping in foil. Open potatoes and mash, then cover with soy milk. Season with sea salt and pepper, cover with either steam broccoli or corn. Very good and filling.

Today, I made Antipasto Pizza Pie for lunch, and it may just be my new favorite main dish for the Daniel Fast. The regular recipe I use calls for one egg, Parmesan cheese, and mozzarella.
That looks like a great Daniel Fast pizza recipe Kristen. Some folks will avoid the tofu, others will enjoy it.
