The Daniel Fast and Our Menu for This Week

Posted by on January 28, 2013 in Daniel Fast, Food | 14 comments

So, we’re back on the Daniel Fast until March. That basically means no meat, no dairy, no coffee, no sugar, no white flours or rice. Basically, a lot of fruits, veggies, whole grains, and that sort of thing.

This is what I’ve got so far:



  • Flatbread (I have a feel we’ll be having these all the time)
  • Brown Rice
  • Veggies



And that is all I can think of right now. If anyone has any meal or snack ideas, I would love to hear them! I hope everyone has a great week!

  1. Are we getting together for the Super Bowl? I could make a meatless jambalaya…also, cowboy caviar. You’ll have to let me know if there are any types of tortilla chips that are approved. Here’s to a meaningful fasting season!

    • I haven’t even thought of the Super Bowl! Is that this weekend?!

      We can have any chips that are preservative free and also white flour free. I tend to buy corn chips, like those blue ones. I think you had some last time we did this.

      • I think I had chips, but Aaron was hesitant – something about deep frying vs. baked. Oh well, I’ll read chip packages very carefully this time :)

        • That makes sense. So much to think about. We can also bring over chips and whatever else is needed.

  2. I assume eggs aren’t allowed?

    • You assume right. No eggs, which means no baking! Lol.

  3. You’ll do great! I am enjoying my sugar-free challenge, but the Daniel Fast requires even more self denial and self control. I pray God will reveal Himself to you and bless you during your time of fasting. Looking forward to some new recipe ideas in the weeks to come :)

    • Yes! I believe besides the benefits of eating healthy, God will reveal Himself in a new way. Can’t wait to see what He’s going to do!

      Oh, yeah. New recipes. I’ve already got a few ideas…

  4. Mrs. Herb and I did the Daniel Fast two years ago…it was an extremely difficult process for me because I am so incredibly picky as it is, so I was limited on my veggie selection. However, your recipes look delicious and easy, which leads me to believe I could do it again! Good luck as you embark upon this venture again; prayers for you!

    • I used to be really picky. I still am but not as much. You learn if you’re hungry, you’ll eat anything! :)

  5. i’m very intrigued by your fast these couple of months! I don’t know if I could go that long without bakign with eggs or white flour, so I commend you! That smoothie looks incredible.

    • I do miss baking. I don’t really miss white flour though, which is nice. I’ve started using Whole Wheat Pastry flour in all my baking, so I think that helps. It’s wonderful!

      It’s definitely not easy. Right now I could go for a cup of coffee with a muffin! Haha.

  6. I definitely recommend adding some beans/legumes to the diet. Perhaps a veggie chili, a Tuscan white bean dish with olive oil and herbs, or a lentil dish like Esau’s potage or just a mixed bean salad. There are a lot of recipes for bean dishes available on the web, but you can just wing it. I like to do bean salad with just beans and an italian type dressing. I do a meatless chili with just canned beans and tomatoes and season to taste. If you aren’t used to including beans in your diet regularly, I do recommend you start slowly to minimize the gassy digestive reaction.

    • Yeah… we don’t eat a lot of beans or legumes. We probably should. My friend makes a mean veggie chili. I’ll have to get that recipe from her. Thanks for all the recipe ideas! I’ll have to look on the web and see what’s out there!
