Daniel Fast Menu Week 3

In my Monday Morning Coffee and Chat a few weeks ago, 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.). 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:

Sunday:

Breakfast: oatmeal with fresh apple and sliced almonds

Lunch: hodge podge of leftovers from the week before

Dinner: Baked potatoes topped with vegetarian chili, salad

MONDAY:

Breakfast: oatmeal, almonds, dried fruit

Lunch: whole grain pasta tossed with kale, fresh vegetables, olive oil, garlic
