If you’ve been on my instastories, you will know that I have been posting what I’ve been eating over the last 10 days on on the fast. So far, I’m not craving anything in particular, I haven’t given in to any temptations and my body is feeling great. Remember that the Daniel Fast is a spiritual fast and not a diet. Sure, there are health benefits but that should not be the primary focus. It requires intentional times for prayer, worship and bible study.
“A diet may change the way you look, but a fast can change the way you see—and that has far more eternal value.” Lisa Bevere
If this is your first time fasting, you may want to check previous blog posts to give you context. Also, it would be wise to have your doctor sign this off before you embark on the fast.
So, here is my meal plan for this week. It is based on what I already had in the fridge and cupboards. As usual, I try to eat a variety of foods during the week because I get bored easily.
Cinnamon raisin brown rice breakfast porridge (omit sugar)
Fresh Fruit and vegetables
Aldi paleo bars (I love the cashew crush). You can also make your own bars!
If you are still struggling for suggestions, check out my previous meal plans here and here. Also pinterest is great for ideas – search for vegan recipes, and then modify them using these guidelines. Let me know what you’ll be eating by leaving a comment below or on this instagram post.
I’m praying for you.
