Daniel Fast: My Top Picks


Though I’m still getting used to saying, “2013” I’m happy to live to see another year! Many people like to reset their body for optimal health by doing a fast. Fasting has varying levels– no water or food, no food, or even just abstaining from certain foods. Almost every year I participate in a 21 day Daniel Fast which can really vary from person to person. It is a great alternative for those who cannot do a full fast for medical reasons such as needing to take medication or issues with blood sugar. You still receive many benefits from this. Though I don’t believe it is mentioned, during this time I also remove salt from my diet and only sweeten food with things found in nature such as dates. 21 days is a long time and so many by about the 7th day really have no idea what they can eat! I’ve made a list of my favorite foods to consume during this time. I leave out salt and replace with 21 seasoning and lemon juice. Some people cut out oil, but I think it is a necessary part of the diet, especially at this time.

1. Confetti Oatmeal

2. Naturally sweetened oatmeal

3. Sleeveless burrito

4. Vegan green smoothie

5. Quinoa Lentil Pilaf

6. Overnight Oats

7. Roasted vegetables

8. Stir-fry

9. Sweet potato curry

10. Simple dinner salad

11. Kale chips

12. Asian tofu stew

13. Cabbage soup

14. Lentil soup

15. Cajun brown rice with veggies
