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

I Can't Believe It's Not Butter

I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
I just started the Daniel Fast (day 3) and would like to know if I Can't Believe It's Not Butter is okay if I was attempting to follow the diet as strickly as possible? Michael
Sorry Michael, you should avoid it.
"Although the manufacturer claims that the product contains no trans fat, this is not true. Checking the ingredients listed on the package shows hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils as part of the makeup. Hydrogenating oils necessarily adds trans fats to food."
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Can't_Believe_It's_Not_Butter
Olive oil from Imperia in Liguria, Italy.Image via Wikipedia
We use olive oil in the place of butter. Add a little salt if you like salted butter. Don't use olive oil for high heat frying. We prefer extra virgin olive oil. For high temp cooking, we use Colza, Canola and other healthy non-animal fats. They are OK in moderation. Use as little oil as possible. French fries have too much oil. Spray some Pam or vegetable oil on your fries and bake them.

Deep Fat Fried Potatoes

This year we bought a deep fat fryer to use with peanut oil- looking forward to deep fat fried potatoes- sweet and regular!
Thanks for all you do! Leslie
Hi Leslie. Thanks for your note. We're not sure if you are kidding us or serious. We hope it is the former. Canola, peanut oil and other healthy non-animal fats are OK in moderation. We prefer extra virgin olive oil and Colza.

The foods to avoid list includes, "margarine, shortening, animal fat, high fat products." Deep fried foods are definitely "high fat products" to be avoided. Use as little oil as possible! French fries have too much oil. Spray some Pam or vegetable 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 high heat frying!

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.

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.

Good to hear from you Stephanie. Thanks for your kind words. May God bless your Daniel Fast with much spiritual fruit.

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.
