Rose's Daniel fast preparation

I'm starting the Daniel Fast tomorrow, for the first time. I have been getting myself ready for over a month.. I no longer drink regular coffee (only 1 mug of decaf in the mornings) , so when I start just drinking just water tomorrow, I will not have any withdrawel headaches. Plus, I bought a bunch of fruits and veggies today. I've eaten eggs for so long, that it' going to be strange to not start my day with one, but I'm confident that oatmeal and fresh fruit will help get me through my breakfast changes :D Rose

Great ideas Rose. Thanks for sharing.

Marcy's cinnamon tea

My church family and I are starting the Daniel fast and I wanted to share some options we are using.

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!
