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.

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.), and because it’s Passover right now, no leavened bread.

Here is my menu for the first week:

Sunday:

We’re on the road. We’ll have hotel prepared oatmeal with raisins and almonds for breakfast. Lunch and dinner will be a salad or vegetarian dish on the road. On top of the salad, we’ll have olive oil and vinegar.

MONDAY:

Breakfast: oatmeal, almonds, dried fruit

Lunch: vegetable soup with lintels

Dinner: black beans, brown rice, avocado, whole grain tortillas

TUESDAY:

Breakfast: fresh melon, walnuts

Lunch: leftover beans and rice on tortillas, avocado

Dinner: 16-Bean Soup, salad

WEDNESDAY:

Breakfast: oatmeal, almonds, dried fruit

Lunch: leftover 16-bean soup or vegetable soup

Dinner: sweet potato and black bean hash with corn, brown rice

THURSDAY:

Breakfast: fresh fruit salad, pecans/walnuts/raisins trail mix

Lunch: baked sweet potato, steamed broccoli, salad.

Dinner: Pasta with sauce made from eggplant and portobello mushrooms, salad

FRIDAY:

Breakfast: oatmeal, almonds, dried fruit

Lunch: vegetarian stir-fry made from yellow squash, zucchini, edamame (soybeans), green pappers, onions, mushrooms, served with brown rice

Dinner: hummus, falafel, brown rice, stuffed grape leaves
