2011 Daniel Fast Instructions

It’s Not All About the Food

Seeking God and “Taking out the Trash”

Daniel’s reasoning from abstaining from certain foods was to keep from defiling himself (Daniel 1:8). The Daniel Diet is not all about the food! If it were, the spiritual benefits would be negated. The result would be a life style choice on how to eat, or simply put, a new twist on the vegetarian diet. This is time to “Take out the Trash.” Do an inventory.

What consumes your time from God and Family?

What TV Programs are you watching? How much time are you surfing the Internet?

What books are you filling your mind with? Do they edify God?

During this diet you should evaluate what you watch on TV. Don’t watch movies, or read books that don’t deepen your walk with God. Choose books on spiritual matters. Spend more time reading the Bible and more time in prayer. Limit your time on the computer and don’t waste your time with continual surfing of the Internet.

You may want to consider keeping a journal of special insights of blessings you receive during this time. Look at it as a new adventure.

Foods to Avoid

Information taken from The Daniel’s Fast Cookbook by Grace Bass & Lynda Anderson Pg.29

  • All meat product including seafood, beef and chicken broth, etc.
  • Imitation meat products (artificially flavored, highly processed)
  • Dairy products such as milk, cheese, sour cream, etc. 
  • All egg products
  • Grains that have been bleached and processed such as white flour and all products containing it
  • White sugar and all products containing it
  • White rice
  • Artificial sweeteners (Splenda® (sucralose), NutruSweet® (aspartame), Sweet’N Low® (saccharine), etc.
  • Carbonated beverages (soda, soft drinks, carbonated flavor water, etc)
  • Food containing additives, chemicals and dyes
  • Soy sauce (fermented)
  • Artificial anything including flavors and colors
  • Hydrogenated oils (margarine, shortening and all products containing it)
  • Fried food should be avoided (most fried foods are fried in Hydrogenated oil)
  • Corn Syrup (high fructose corn syrup)
  • Alcohol – Daniel didn’t drink the King’s wine 
  • Vinegar – made by a fermentation process like wine 
  • Black tea – fully fermented
  • Baking powder – it is baking soda (natural) and an acid like cream of tartar mixed together.
  • Cream of tartar is a byproduct of wine making.

***Should you be led to do a juice/water fast during these 30 days, do so as the Lord leads.***

Guidelines:

Food to Enjoy

Information taken from The Daniel’s Fast Cookbook by Grace Bass & Lynda Anderson pg 30

  • All fruits and vegetables
  • All grains, beans, legumes, that have not been bleached stripped and processed. Grains should be whole such as whole brown rice, whole wheat flour etc.
  • All nuts
  • All herbs and seasonings and spices – salt is fine. Try and use natural herbs and seasoning
  • Baking soda – all natural
  • Agave Nectar – this is great! It is all natural and has a consistency similar to honey…just a little thinner. PLUS-the glycemic index of Agave nectar is very low.
  • Stevia – a leaf that is naturally sweet. It is up to 300 times sweeter than sugar and has ZERO calories and ZERO carbohydrates
  • Bragg Liquid Aminos® (natural alternative to soy sauce)
  • Water, naturally decaffeinated tea, fruit and vegetable juices
  • Cold pressed oils such as olive oil, unprocessed coconut, peanut, sesame, walnut, almond, and mustard seed oil
  • Soy milk (read the nutritional label)
  • Tofu (whole soy beans and water)
  • Pasta (whole-grain flour and water) NO EGGS or WHITE flour

*This is slightly different than some of the foods on the master list. The addition of no white flour or white rice is better for you, but you can be your own judge.*

Daniel’s Fast Friendly Restaurants, Stores and Products

There are a few chain restaurants with Daniel Diet friendly menus. Chipotle, Tropical Smoothie Cafe and Subway. Applebee’s has a steamed vegetable plate and a sizzling vegetable skillet (remember, no butter.) P.F. Changs, Wendy’s (Baked Potatoe) also offer good choices. Taco Bell does not use lard and so their refried and pinto beans are acceptable.

Tropical Smoothie Café with certain items on the menu will be acceptable.

Go online to www.upperroomassembly.com and find a bigger list of foods acceptable on the Daniel’s Fast.

Protein is the building block of our bodies, it is necessary for life. Many people have concerns about consuming enough protein when they abstain from all meat and animal products.

Consuming the amount of protein you need is not difficult in the Daniel Diet. Protein can be found in nearly all vegetables, beans, grains, nuts and seeds. As long as you consume a variety of whole unrefined grains, legumes, seeds, nuts, and vegetables throughout the day, you will get enough protein.

Calcium

Dairy products are not allowed in the Daniel Diet. Many Americans believe dairy is the primary source of calcium in our diets. However, calcium is abundant in leafy green vegetables as well as some fruit, beans and grains. You may want to take an all natural calcium supplement if you have any concerns.

B-12

Taking a B-12 supplement is especially important while on the Daniel Diet. We obtain B-12 from animal sources. Take a sublingual tablet.
