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

Garlic boiled peanuts


South Carolina Boiled Peanut in Shell. Image via Wikipedia
Not really a recipe, but today I knew we were going to the flea market, so I decided to get some garlic boiled peanuts... very satisfying and within the fast guidelines. Kim in Florida, USA
Thanks Kim. We might have to make some boiled peanuts at home! Used to get those on the highway south of Asheville, NC when we lived in South Carolina. Mike

Sally found Brown Rice Pasta


Hi,
I just wanted to let you know that there is pasta that is made from brown rice now. The brand is Tinkyada Pasta Joy Ready and it's very much like wheat pasta in texture and taste. The ingredients listed is: stone-ground brown rice, rice bran, and water. It is Kosher Certified also.

Just thought you might want to look into it.

Also, it says in Daniel 1 that he ate this way through out the king's reign.

Thanks for the site,
Sally
Thank You Sally. Folks will be looking for this product in their stores. The photo is from their website at www.tinkyada.com. Bon appetit.

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.

Yeast or Sweetener?

I thought during a fast we were not supposed to have yeast or sweetener. Nancy
Thanks for your good question Nancy! If you feel it is wrong to eat products with yeast or any form of sweetener, then you should avoid them. In the Jewish tradition, there are times when leaven or yeast is not allowed. So it is not unusual to avoid yeast. When you check the Daniel's Fast/Diet foods to avoid list, there is no mention of leaven or yeast. We are allowed to eat whole grain breads and other products.

Concerning sweeteners, we are to avoid
  • refined sugar
  • high fructose corn syrup
  • chemical sugar substitutes
However, possible allowed sweeteners include molasses, agave, raw honey, stevia, and Maple syrup. http://www.stevia.net/ has more information about stevia, a natural herb. Stevia might be cheaper at Amazon.com. They also have raw honey.

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!

Wheat Bread and Daniel Fast Duration

Hi it is me again. Is it alright to eat wheat Bread and if so does it have to be gluten free?and is the fast as long as I want or is it only requried for 10 days. Valencia
Wheat bread:
Whole grain bread is good. 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.

Duration:
You can do the Daniel Fast for 3 days, 10 days, 21 days, or 40 days. Many do the Daniel Diet for a lifetime. Even Non-Christians have found Daniel's Vegan diet to be a source of healing for a long duration. Read more about duration of a Daniel Diet.

Soya milk and yogurt or rice milk?

Can you use Soya Milk and yogurt or rice milk on the diet. I consume a lot of yogurt and that would be the thing I most miss?
Janice
Thanks for your e-mail Janice. We really love the Daniel Fast. It is so thrilling to help people achieve spiritual breakthrough.

Rice and Soy milk aren't whole grain. Since the milk is filtered to remove the pulp from the grain. So they should be avoided.

You will miss eating yogurt, but it is part of the sacrifice you make when you fast.

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.

White Flour and Fruit Juices

Hello....

I appreciate your taking the time to answer my questions.

I want to understand why white flour products are not allowable...ie bread,
pasta..etc...

Also, is 100% fruit juice allowable?

Can you give me an understanding about that?

Thanks so much...and be blessed
Ramona


Rev. Elmer Towns is the author of the Fasting For Spiritual Breakthrough Daniel Fast Diet. His idea here is to avoid animal products and processed foods. It is a partial fast with a lot of healthy food to eat. It is very much like a Vegan diet.

The three hardest things for most people to give up are meats, breads and favorite drinks. For me the hardest thing is coffee, because the headache is terrible from the lack of caffeine. Rev. Towns advises us to follow his fast for spiritual breakthrough and give up these few processed/party foods. We are to focus on communion with God when we desire the foods from which we are abstaining.

There are a lot of whole grain foods and breads you can enjoy. So you don't have to go without breads. Read more about whole grains.

Yes, all unsweetened juices are allowed in the foods to eat list.

Are mushrooms ok on the Daniel Fast?

Hi, Are mushrooms ok on the Daniel Fast?

Thank you for this wonderful website and all
the really good information.

Anne
Thank you for your encouraging email Ann.

Yes, mushrooms are great to eat in your Daniel Fast Diet. They are listed on the Foods to eat page as vegetables. So you can fry some up with some onions in a little extra virgin olive oil and put them on your veggie burgers between your whole grain hamburger buns. You're making me hungry! Guess I better go eat my morning snack?

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
