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.

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.

Salt, spices, fructose, organic tea, oats, questions

Thanks for your questions Amanda.

>What kind of salty spices are we allowed to use. I saw you mentioned salt - any kind of salt?

No problem with any salt or spices. Avoid sugar and animal product based products. It is advised to avoid artificial sweeteners. Butter is an animal product 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

>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.

Whole Grains in the Daniel Diet

Have I misunderstood your recommendation that it is OK to eat 3 cups of uncooked then cooked) oatmeal per day in the beginning of the Daniel Diet?
Thank you!
Cherry

Hi Cherry,
I'm not sure where you read about 3 cups of oatmeal. Oatmeal is allowed in the Daniel Diet, along with all other whole grains. You can eat as much of whole grain products raw or cooked as you desire.

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. "Wheat flour" is not a whole grain and therefore does not indicate a whole grain product. Many breads are colored brown (often with molasses) and made to look like whole grain, but are not. Additionally, some food manufacturers make foods with whole grain ingredients, but because whole grain ingredients are not the dominant ingredient, they are not whole grain products.

Whole grains are often more expensive than refined grains, because their higher oil content is susceptible to rancidification, complicating processing, storage, and transport.

From AACC (American Association of Cereal Chemist) definition: "Whole grains shall consist of the intact, ground, cracked or flaked caryopsis, whose principal anatomical components - the starchy endosperm, germ and bran - are present in the same relative proportions as they exist in the intact caryopsis. Source http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole_grains

We are sure our foods are made with whole grain, because we grind our grain ourselves.

You can make your own pasta or noodles out of whole grains with a pasta machine.

Thanks,
Mike
