Daniel Fast Menu Planning

I have found that I am most successful fasting when I plan ahead. I don’t want to focus so much on the food, although that’s important in this fast. I want to spend most of my time and energy focusing on my relationship with our Lord.

So, I try to plan about three days of menus at a time and make sure I have everything I need to prepare the simple meals. I plan to post more than 100 recipes up on this weblog over the next few weeks, so come back often. You can receive a very helpful Daniel Fast Meal Planning Worksheet by subscribing to our list at http://daniel-fast.com

Here are just a few simple menus. They are all ideas for menus that you can use during your Fast:

Breakfast

Sliced fruit

Hot whole-grain cereal with raisins and nuts

Juice on the cereal

Lunch

Hearty Layered Salad and Greek Vegetable Stew

Dinner

Vegetarian Chili and a Green Salad with dressing

Lentil Soup and a Green Salad with dressing

Snacks

Sliced vegetables with hummus

Sliced vegetables with white bean dip

Raw almonds or other nuts

Sliced fruit and nuts

Please add your ideas to the comment space below. I would love to add yours to this section!

    Hi again, I found the answer to my last question about nutritional yeast. What about using semolina flour? Thanks again

    Are smoothies allowed? If so, what would be the recipe. Thank you.

    • Hi Valora,

      Yes, smoothies are allowed as a meal replacement and are very common today. I use them often. My favorite is to use frozen berries along with unsweetened almond milk, almond butter, pumpkin seed and walnuts. I also add some water to keep the consistency nice.

      Be blessed

      Hi Aria,
      Yes, you are fine with steel cut oats (watch what goes on top)…. A great option for the Daniel Fast!

    I’ve looked through other questions and comments so not to double ask a question. Are you allowed to have unsweetened almond milk to cook with?

      Yes, unsweetened additive free plant based milks such as almond is fine for recipes and cereal, just not for drinking. Be blessed!

    What about using Stevia, since it comes from a plant? Is this ok?

      Hi Donna,
      No sweeteners are allowed on the Daniel Fast. So even though Stevia is a natural plant based ingredient it would not be allowed according to the Daniel Fast Guidelines. Be Blessed!

      Hi Gwen,
      Both yellow and white grits are allowed. Just be sure to prepare them in a way using only ingredients that comply with the Daniel Fast. Be blessed!

    Hi can rice milk be used on fast? I’m just considering and wanted to know options

    January 15, 2014

      Hi Wanda,
      All plant based milks (almond, rice, soy, coconut, etc.) that are free of sweeteners and additives are allowed, but only for use in “recipes and on cereal” (just not as a beverage, water is the only drinking beverage allowed on the fast). Be Blessed!

    This is my first time doing any type of fast and I would like to know what are the recommended times of day foods should or shouldn’t be eaten..Blessings

      Hi Linda,
      There are no scriptures in the Daniel Fast that specify the amount of food (portion size) or even number of times per day to eat during the fasting period. However, keep in mind that this is a fast and portion control and eating sensibly to be comfortably full is appropriate. So eating three “moderate” meals and two “small” snacks a day should be the goal. Be Blessed!
