Observing a Daniel Fast

Starting January 2, my husband and I will begin a 21-day observance of “The Daniel Fast”. I want to detox my body and focus on God. I’m using the fast to strengthen both my body and my spirit.
In observing the diet we will eat only vegetables, fruits, and unleavened bread that does not contain any ingredient that is not made directly from a vegetable or fruit. For instance, I am going to make tortillas out of fresh ground flour and olive oil (instead of shortening or beef tallow). When I make a salad, I’ll flavor it with olive oil (cold pressed) and lemon juice. We will eat only whole grains (brown rice vs. white rice). We will only drink water. We call it “vegan extreme”.
We do this fast annually, and it is so rejuvenating to both my body and spirit that I start looking forward to it weeks in advance. This year, I feel led to share with you my menus for the fast as well as recipes, hints, tricks, and insights I receive as I fast and pray. Continue reading
