20 Daniel Fast Recipes

Last summer Hubby and I participated in a 21-day Daniel Fast, and on January 14 our church will fast again for twenty-one days. The Daniel Fast is basically a vegan diet, but without any sweeteners and only water to drink. Our menu looked very different and I want to share with you some of our favorite meals we created:

1. Spicy Oatmeal
Traditional (read: non-instant) oatmeal with plenty of cinnamon and a sprinkle of sugar-free granola.

2. Cereal & Milk
Sugar free granola and Almond, Soy or Flax milk.

3. Nuts N’ Berries
Pitted prunes and sliced almonds.

4. Fruit Bowl
Cantaloupe, grapefruit and pineapple.

5. Multigrain Pancakes & Fruit
I use Arrowhead Mills multigrain mix and add water.

4. Chipotle Burrito Bowl – I think this is the only Daniel-friendly restaurant we found!
Black beans, veggies, all four salsas if you can handle it! Guac and lettuce.

5. Soup and Berry Salad
Lentil or vegetable soup. Spinach leaves with strawberries, blueberries and walnuts with strawberry vinaigrette.

6. Burgers & Fries
Black been burger with guac on a whole wheat flatbread served with sweet potatoes slices sautéed in olive oil.

7. Home Fries & Baked Potatoes!
Potatoes sliced and oven baked. Topped with salsa.

8. Quinoa and bean sprout trio

9. Lentils and brown rice
Cook lentils with a large pinch of salt and some cumin.

10. Zucchini pizza
Pictured above, this pie is on whole wheat flatbread with tomato sauce, zucchini, tomatoes, jalapeno, purple onions and basil. I think I snapped the picture before Hubby added the jalapenos.

11. Vegetable Whole Wheat Pasta
You can use whole wheat pasta or quinoa pasta, with green peppers and corn in tomato sauce, with a heavy garnish of cilantro and basil.

12. Veggie burgers with Mashed Potatoes in Almond Milk

13. Wrap
Whole wheat tortillas, homemade guac or roasted red pepper hummus with baby spinach leaves, cherry tomatoes, zucchini & grilled eggplant. Sprinkled with crushed red pepper flakes

14. Sautéed Veggies: Eggplants, Squash… whatever veggies you can bear at this point!

15. Edamame & Chopped Salad
We get frozen edamame from Costco. It cooks in the microwave in seconds. Chopped salad includes dried cranberries, pecan chips, green peppers, Anaheim peppers, cilantro, and sautéed corn. Yum-o!

16. Tofu & Vegetable Sushi

17. Eggplant Sandwich
Two huge grilled slices of eggplant with grilled zucchini, carrots and cucumbers inside.

18. Toasted sunflower seeds & raisins

19. Bananas, cashews, & apricots.

20. Okay, I guess I only had 19 recipes.

    I am so glad I found your blog. I do the Daniel fast at the beginning of every year as do many from my church. I saw that you talked about only finding one Daniel friendly restaurant. I wanted to share a few of my tips I have learned through trial and error when eating out. We have Jason’s Delis here (central TX) They have an awesome salad bay and several vegetarian/vegan dishes. Souper Salad is another one we love. Also in a pinch the local tex mex taco salad can be modified. Just don’t eat the shell it’s actually flour tortilla. I will be starting up a blog for my friends and I at my church for this years fast. Your page is great and I hope it’s ok to reference you a lot in it. Take care and happy new year!
