Daniel Fast Menu Week 2

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 2:

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.

Chatting with Author Suzan Tisdale

I spent the day with the amazing and wonderful author Suzan Tisdale in her home near Peoria, Illinois, last weekend. We cooked all day Saturday, whipping up several Scottish inspired recipes:

Scotch Eggs with Sauce

Meat Pies with Hallee’s “On the Fly” Dip

Chocolate Scotch Bundt Cake with Scotch Caramel Sauce

Orange Chocolate Scotch Mousse with Scotch Whipped Cream

We had a blast! After cooking all day, we spent some time sitting on her patio, chatting about books, writing, audio books, and life. Here is the video:
