The Daniel Fast

I started the Daniel Fast on January 7th, it's a fast that lasts 21 days. This fast is a model set by Daniel in the Bible.

Daniel 10:2-3
"In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled."

Can Eat:
All Fruits
All Vegetables
All Seeds & Nuts
Whole Grain Pasta & Bread

Can't Eat:
Any Type Of Meat (Including Fish)
Dairy (Including Butter & Eggs)
Junk Food Of Any Kind
Caffeine And Sweeteners (Even Natural Ones)
Any Beverage Other Than Water (Including Tea)
White Flour
Chocolate D:
Pretty Much Anything That Comes In A Box (Because Of The Stripped Or Enriched Flours, Preservatives, Additives, Chemicals, Hydrogenated Oils And Dyes)

To start off with I don't eat beef or pork, I quit any type of carbonated beverage 2 years ago, and I stopped eating chips in the beginning of December. 

To be completely honest with you I don't miss any of that stuff because it's been so long since I've had it so there's no way I could possibly crave it. :)

This is still a big change (I mean hello, no chocolate!!) but it's still a good thing to do, we discipline ourselves in several ways, but not always when it comes to what we put in our body..
Here's what I ate on the first day of the fast

 1/4 Cup of oats mixed with water, cooked on stove top and sprinkled with cinnamon
 1oz of cashews
Teeny Tiny Pear :)
 Brown & wild rice (takes like 45 mins to cook) with sauteed carrots seasoned with rosemary
 Dessert ;)
 nothing but "Seedless Raisins" yay :D

Thanks for taking time out and reading my post, I appreciate it :)

Made With A Plan,

I will be joining these parties:


  1. Stunning photos Molly! I also agree, No Chocolate oh my!! I know you can make it through 21 days though even if it may seem difficult. Good luck and I hope you post more about this as time goes by.
    Love you,
    Your Mama

  2. What about Beans....are they allowed?

    1. Yes beans are allowed on the fast, sadly I have a strong dislike for beans so I didn't even think to put it on the list, sorry! :[

  3. I like to do a Daniel fast each beginning of the yr. Molly..may the lord bless U for the effort.
