Ernice's Daniel Fast Healing

Fruit image via Wikipedia
A coworker came to work and announced that her church was going on a 21 day fast and it would consist of Fruit and Veggies and she challenged us to participate. I thought she must be losing her mind to think that I could survive for 21 days eating only fruit and veggies. Nevertheless, I did it. At first, my food tasted really bland because I wasn't using any seasonings and I wasn't creative with my menu. After we compared our menu's, they laughed at me and said I could use seasonings for my food and they offered some suggestions. I didn't want to lose cool points with the Lord and be less anointed if I broke any rules. Well, this turned out to be one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I've lost 30lbs, my blood pressure and cholesterol is normal and I've maintained for 2yrs! Ernice
Thank you for sharing your encouraging testimony!

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.

Thanks for your questions Amanda.

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

>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.
