Daniel Fast Menu Week 3

A Daniel Fast is a vegan fast. That means, no animal proteins at all, including dairy and eggs, and only water to drink. It also has “no pleasant food”, which to me means processed sugars and baked goods. We also do whole grains (no white rice, etc.). Passover ended, so we can now eat leavened bread. Most bread I make has some form of sugar (or honey) and dairy (milk or eggs); however, I have a pita bread I make and a French bread I make that do not contain any sweeteners or dairy. I will keep those on hand during the fast.

Here is my menu for the week 3: Continue reading

Slow Cooker Recipe: Artichoke, Kale & Lentil Stew

This is such a rich, flavorful stew. It’s completely vegetarian, so you can eat it if you’re fasting from meat. It can also be cooked on the stove-top within an hour, or tossed into a slow cooker and set to simmer all day long. Continue reading

Daniel Fast Menu Week 1

In my Monday Morning Coffee and Chat last week, I talked about doing the Daniel Fast for the month of April. A friend asked if I’d post my menu while we did it, because if you’re not used to a vegan diet with no processed soy, leavening, or sugars, you’re facing a daunting challenge of meal planning.

Recipe: Resurrection Cookies

I make this recipe with my kids every Easter eve. We enjoy the cookies the next morning with our eggs for breakfast the next morning. The kids can’t wait to open the oven door the next morning and see the hollow meringue. I originally found the recipe here. I LOVE how I get to read the Bible with them as we make these cookies, how they get to have some application to apply to the story to help them retain what they’re reading and/or hearing. This is a beautiful hands-on tool to teach the resurrection of our Lord. Continue reading
