Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.” Daniel 1:12

“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.” -——Daniel 10:2, 3

DFfbWelcome! The purpose of this site is to offer valuable and complete information about the Daniel Fast. As the Daniel Fast Blogger, my #1 goal is to help you have a successful fasting experience. More and more Christian men and women are choosing the Daniel Fast as their guideline to enter into the spiritual discipline. While the Daniel Fast is a partial fast, (rather than total abstention from all food) it still provides many of the attributes of denying the self and seeking God.

This blog is designed as a “gathering place” for information and resources about the Daniel Fast to serve those seeking God in this manner. Please “cruise” the blog. Remember, this is a blog format, so you will need to page down to see all the posts. Also, leave comments if you have ideas, questions, or comments.

Also, join our Facebook community! It’s a powerful way to stay connected to others who are seeking God through an extended period of prayer and fasting.

Receive your free newsletter: Just go to our website (where there is even more information about the fast) and submit your name and email address and you will receive recipes, helpful tips and powerful tools to support your fast and your journey with Christ. Click Here

Also, please know that we do our best to answer your questions on a timely basis, but we receive hundreds almost every day and so it takes a while to read your comments and then type answers. All comments are held for review to avoid spam messages showing up on the blog.

    silicon dioxide is found in many of my seasonings as a flow agent to reduce clumping. Is this okay? I tried doing some research on it but I am still skeptical.

    • Hi Debbie,

      This is a “naturally derived” ingredient. So it would be allowed. However, I encourage you to find seasonings that don’t require it.

    How long does a caffeine withdrawal headache last?

    November 7, 2014
    • It can take as many as 10 days, but for most it’s about 4-5 days.

      Drink plenty of water and eat foods that are high in potassium. That seems to help.

    Can I eat a veggie soup??with crackers??

    November 5, 2014
    • You’ll need to study the ingredients to make sure they comply with the Daniel Fast. Original Triscuits are fine . . . and I encourage you to make your own soup. Then you know for sure what’s in it! :-)

    I am ready to try the Daniel fast strictly for spiritual purposes. However, I’m concerned about gaining enough nutrition while working out and running. What can I do to ensure I receive enough protein for recovery after a workout and also keeping my body fueled throughout the day? Are protein supplements allowed? I use a sugar free supplement now.

    November 3, 2014
    • There are many plant-based proteins. You can also make smoothies with unsweetened plant-based protein powder. Eat protein salad (add beans and nuts) and make soups, stews, casseroles and more with whole grains and legumes.

      Be blessed on your fast.

    I have high blood pressure can you give me some suggestions. I take medication in the morning with orange juice. Will that be alright to continue while I fast and pray.

    November 2, 2014
    • Saundra,

      If this is a medical requirement, then continue with it (unless it would be okay to take the medication with water). Meanwhile, continue with the fasting guidelines throughout the rest of the day.

    Hello…. I have started the Daniel Fast today. Can you have Ketchup and vinegar in the daniel fast?

    October 27, 2014
    • Tiffany, you’ll need to read the list of ingredients on the food label to make sure the contents is free of chemicals and sweeteners. Vinegar is usually allowed, however ketchup usually has sugar, so it would not be allowed.

    I was wondering whether one can eat rice bran oil on the Daniel Fast?

    Because we don’t have rice I was wondering whether or not we can have rice bran oil…

    Thanks :)

    October 26, 2014

    Are kosher dill pickles with garlic allowed?

    October 19, 2014
    • Check the ingredients, Myrna. If the pickles are free of chemicals, artificial coloring and sweeteners then they would be fine.

      Is unsweetened almond milk allowed in the Daniel Fast ?

      October 25, 2014
      • Yes, you can use it in recipes, but the only beverage on the Daniel Fast is water. All plant-based milks that are free of chemicals and sweeteners allowed.

    Is the Daniel fast ok to do while nursing a baby?

    October 19, 2014
    • Yes, Emily. But you want to make slight adjustments. Keep the core of the Daniel Fast and then add appropriate amounts of lean animal proteins and low-fat dairy to ensure you and your baby get the nutrition needed.

      Be blessed!

  12. You mentioned that honey is not allowed during the Daniel fast so I was just wondering, are fruits taken during the fast restricted to the ones which are not sweet?

    October 14, 2014
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Naturally derived sugars that are naturally found in most foods like fruit is fine. Sweeteners such as honey, although natural are not allowed on the fast. I hope this helps!
