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.

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”.
