Susie's advice and broccoli recipe

Broccoli, Calabrese cultivar http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broccoli
Broccoli, Calabrese cultivar
First, allow your hunger to be your reminder to bring your prayers/petitions before His throne. Then, afterwards eat the foods listed.

One favorite dish is to use: 2-3 T. Olive Oil,to med. high heat; Add chopped Broccoli florets, chopped Red Onion, 2 Cloves Garlic, several Carrots sliced thinly, and a little Ginger. Stir constantly, then use Soy Sauce to taste. Enjoy! Susie
Thanks Susie, for your good advice. Sounds tasty! Many avoid soy sauce, because it is fermented. You can replace soy sauce with lemon juice and salt.

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.

Salt, Tuna, Mayo?

can i have products with salt in them ( like tuna in a can has salt and all natural butter it has salt in it.. real mayo,peanut butter, 100% wheat bread. mrs. dash products
Shedra
Mayonnaise and butter are animal fat items to be avoided.

No problem with salt or spices. Avoid sugar and animal product based spices. It is advised to avoid artificial sweetener. However, butter is a high fat item and should be avoided. We encourage people to replace butter with high quality extra virgin olive oil.

Molasses, raw sugar, 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 - http://tinyurl.com/2sc847 They also have raw honey - http://tinyurl.com/2pyras

Fish and poultry

Q. I would like to know if fish is acceptable for the daneil fast; that is baked, boiled, grilled or steamed?

A. It's best to avoid all meats. However, if God is telling you to eat fish during one of your Daniel Fasts, then obey God and call it a modified Daniel Fast!

Q. What about fish or poultry, i.e. tuna, chicken, turkey, etc.?

A. Meat is normally avoided. Pray first and ask the Lord if you should allow fish and poultry products. Definitely avoid fried foods.

Using Oils in a Daniel Fast Diet

I read somewhere that you could have oils, like vegetable oil, virgin olive oil, what about cannola oil? Also, Is it wrong to slice up fresh potatoes and chop fresh onions and saute them altogether in a skillet? Or would this be considered "fried foods". I asked one of my pastors and he said he felt like the reference to 'fried foods' was like things with batter that are deep fried. Please help me. Thank you. Ava

Thanks for your e-mail Ava.

Our first advice is to do the Daniel fast following the advice of your local church leaders. Many churches have specific rules for their congregations. We agree with your pastor about battered fried foods. In addition, since eggs are avoided by most of us, you can't make most batters since they include eggs.

Concerning oils, 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.

>Is fruit suger (fructose) allowed?

Raw sweeteners are OK, processed glucose, fructose etc are not allowed.

>I am drinking organic teas - will that be okay?

Organic is not required. Many teas are very good for you. You should avoid teas with caffeine.

>How do we eat your oats?

I eat my oats raw, mixed into my natural peanut butter and eat on cold bananas or whole grain bread. Sue adds water and a few raisins to her oatmeal and microwaves it.
