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

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.

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.

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

Carole's Daniel Fast Peanut Butter

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup unsalted peanuts
  • 5 Pitted Dates
  • Organic unsweetened Soy Milk
Instructions:
Blend in a processor or Magic Bullet, serve on Low Sodium Ezekiel bread. For an extra treat make a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Makes several servings. Store in fridge.


Thanks for your recipe Carole. Some folks allow soy milk. We avoid it, because it isn't a whole grain. You can probably make it without the soy milk.

We make our own peanut butter with our food processor, but have found we need about a cup of natural peanut butter to get the process started.

Check out my favorite peanut butter mix!

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!

Peanut Butter Mix

I stumbled onto your lovely website yesterday and read a lot of the articles. You had a recipe for peanutbutter where you added 1/2 cup of sun flower seeds, 1/2 cup of chopped peanuts, etc. Then you said you ate 1/2 banana with this mixture. It sounded so good and I told my friend about it and she wants the recipe and I can't find it now. Will you please send it to me? God bless you in your work. Eleanor
Thanks for your note Eleanor. Here it is:

My favorite snack is my natural peanut butter mix on bananas. I usually only eat a half a banana with a tablespoon of my mix for each snack.

I mix together a large jar of natural peanut butter with a half cup each of chopped peanuts, chopped almonds, sunflower seed kernels, pumpkin seed kernels, bran cereal, ground flax, and rolled oats to put on my bananas or apple slices.

If I'm not doing the Daniel Fast, I also include cocoa powder. Sugar really isn't needed.

Why Avoid Fried Foods?

I am just curious as to why you can't have fried foods... especially if you fry them in olive oil or vegetable oil.
Dianna
Hi Dianna, thanks for your question. You can eat some fried foods. Elmer Towns is the author of the Fasting For Spiritual Breakthrough Daniel Fast Diet. He clearly states that we should avoid "margarine, shortening, animal fat, high fat products." So we are allowed to fry foods with a little oil, but we should avoid deep fat frying, which is definitely too much oil.

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.

Mushrooms Stuffed With Rice and Greens

Denise Austin is a long time favorite of both Sue and Mikeby Denise Austin
Makes 4 servings

Although nearly half the calories of hummus come from fat, virtually none of it is saturated. Add olive oil and walnuts and you have a delectable dose of monounsaturated fats to keep you hunger free for hours. Try to use mushrooms that are about 4 1/2" to 5" in diameter. Note: To prevent the mushrooms from becoming waterlogged, remove any sand or dirt with a brush and wipe with damp paper towels instead of rinsing with water.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4 cups sliced escarole (a form of endive that is both versatile and tasty) or Swiss chard (a delicious leafy green vegetable)
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup jarred roasted red peppers, rinsed and chopped
  • 4 large portobello mushrooms, stems discarded
  • 1/2 cup prepared hummus, preferably basil-flavored
  • 3 plum tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
To Make:
  • Cook the rice according to the package directions.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the escarole or Swiss chard and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until wilted. Remove from the heat and stir in the rice and peppers.
  • Place the mushrooms, gill side up, on a rimmed baking sheet. Spread with the hummus and spoon on the rice mixture, spreading it to the edges. Arrange the tomato slices on top and sprinkle with the walnuts. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
