Are Recipes Worthy?


This may sound weird, but I'm going to ask anyway :)
Are all the recipes on the website approved by you all as being DanielFast "worthy" so to speak? My church begins a 21 day fast on the 8th of Jan. So I am planning ahead. I LOVE your website and what you are doing.
May god Bless you both!
Tiffany
Thank you for taking the time to send us this good question, Tiffany.
The Inside of an Eastern Orthodox churchImage via Wikipedia
We've made an effort to advise about replacements for foods to avoid that may be in a recipe that someone has sent us. There is a lot of latitude in the Daniel Fast. 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 like diabetes, 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.


The foods that are controversial are fermented or sweeteners: Molasses, agave nectar, raw sugar, raw honey, stevia, and Maple syrup are possible sweeteners, though we avoid them personally. http://www.stevia.net/ has more information about stevia, a natural herb. Stevia is available at Amazon.com. They also have raw honey and raw sugar.

We do avoid all fermented foods, including wine, soy sauce and vinegar. However some people allow soy sauce and vinegar, maybe because they are not aware that they are fermented or feel that is splitting hairs.

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
For recipes at our website, go to
Our Daniel Fast Store has some great cookbooks. The best Daniel's Diet cookbook we've see is The Daniel's Fast Cookbook

Here is a link for a Google search of vegan recipes. Just make sure the ingredients don't include any of our Daniel Fast foods to avoid.

What about salad dressing?

What about salad dressing?
Frank
There are many good options Frank. Be creative! Sue likes to use plain old salt. I prefer simple lemon juice. You can also add a little extra virgin olive oil or colza after the lemon juice. If you like sweet dressing, use orange juice instead of lemon juice.

You could mix up your own dressing with approved sweeteners. Molasses, raw honey, stevia, and Maple syrup are possible sweeteners. http://www.stevia.net/ has more information about stevia, a natural herb. Stevia might be cheaper at Amazon.com. They also have raw honey.

If you come up with a good dressing, send us the recipe, we'll add it to our Daniel Fast recipes page. Check out our Daniel Fast recipes and look at the book Salad Dressings: For Life By Rhonda Malkmus. Amazon has many more cookbooks.

Mix the vegetables?

With the Daniel's Fast; the dried beans do you eat them raw or do you cook them and once you cook them do you eat them only or can I mix the vegetables together? And will they be more beneficent if I eat them one vegetable at a time or if I mix them? Carlos
Thanks for your question Carlos. You can cook, mix and eat the allowed foods any way you like. If you fry foods, like in a wok or pan, just use as little oil as possible. Try to us healthy oils, no animal fat. Don't deep fry foods!

Fry Potatoes in Olive Oil?

Hello... great site here... me and my mother are doing a daniel fast... we are going a bit longer than a month... i was wondering... is it okay to eat fried foods?... I'm not doing this as a diet... im doing this as spiritual war kinda... ^_^ but i ate a potatoe today and i fried it in olive oil... I was just wondering if thats okay... my mom said we shouldnt fry anything, but I've prayed about it and im not sure i have a problem with it. What do you think?
Stephanie
Good to hear from you Stephanie. Thanks for your kind words. May God bless your Daniel Fast with much spiritual fruit.

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 Colza 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. Don't use olive oil for frying, it cannot handle the heat.

The Daniel's Fast Cookbook

The Daniel's Fast Cookbook
"Hallelujah!! The First Daniel Fast Cookbook
We've been searching for this cookbook since 2003. What encourages us most about Grace and Lynda's Daniel's Fast Cookbook is that it is endorsed by Elmer L. Towns, who created the Daniel Fast for Spiritual Breakthrough in his book Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough."

"I believe in Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough, this is a discipline that God has given to the church for renewal, revival, and worship of the Lord. I am so glad that Grace Bass and Lynda Anderson have written this cookbook on The Daniel Fast. I pray that God will use it in the lives of many people." Elmer L. Towns Co-Founder, Liberty University, Dean, School of Religion, Lynchburg, Virginia

Their cookbook contains more than 100 healthy, tasty and easy to prepare Daniel's Diet recipes. It also includes helpful nutritional information, practical advice for fasting as a church, list of restaurants that have foods we can enjoy on their menu, list of recommended stores we can trust and products we can enjoy. Grace and Lynda also included a section about food options depending on our own personal spiritual convictions. This is an excellent cookbook for Christians considering a Vegan Diet. Thank you Grace and Lynda!

Amazon.com says it will be available in 4-7 weeks. It would be a good idea to pre-order. There will be a huge demand for this cookbook.

Order The Daniel's Fast Cookbook now and/or read more about it.
