    Is almond milk allowed if it isn’t sweetened?

    January 15, 2014
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Yes, almond milk is fine. 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!

    Is unsweetened rice milk, almond milk, or coconut milk allowed (not necessarily to drink but to use if making a natural fruit smoothie or to cook with)?

    Hello, I am on the Daniel fast for the first time. I would like to know if I can use Braggs apple cider vinegar?

    January 8, 2013
    • Yes, you can. I also like the Aminos to use instead of soy sauce. By the way, it’s a Christian-owned business.

      Be blessed!

    Why is Newman oil and vinegar allowed? Isn’t vinegar on the foods to avoid?

    September 1, 2012
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Lourdes,
      The process to make vinegar as well as wine is fermentation. However, fermentation isn’t the issue with wine, it’s the alcohol and what it does to the mind. There is another book out there that gives the reasoning that since wine is fermented then all other fermented products are not allowed . . . but that isn’t the issue for the Daniel Fast. It has to do with the purpose of wine and the alcohol content, so vinegars including red wine vinegar is allowed on the fast. In fact, Newman’s Own Oil and Vinegar salad dressing is THE only Daniel Fast recommended prepared salad dressing on the fast. I hope this helps!

    October 18, 2011
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Jolette,
      There is no sweetener of any kind (Natural or Artificial) allowed on the fast, that would include Agave Nectar and Honey. I hope this helps!

    I was not sure where is the best place to post this but wanted to share a couple recipes.

    I purchased all ingredients at Trader Joes.

    Spaghetti Squash
    Cook 1 large spaghetti squash (microwave is fine) scoop out seeds and spread spaghetti squash evenly in bottom of (approx. 11×7) glass pan/dish. Take 1 jar (approx. 36oz) of traditional marinara sauce (make sure ingredients do not include parmesan or sugar) and pour evenly over spaghetti squash. Shred 2 blocks (or 16 oz) of SOY mozzarella cheese and sprinkle evenly over top. Place dish in broiler for approximately 5 minutes to heat through and lightly brown top of cheese. YUM….one of my favorites :)

    Dice sweet potatoes (with skin) to quarter size pieces (or desired size) and place on cookie sheet greased with olive oil. Also lightly coat potatoes in olive oil and dress with preferred seasonings (i.e. Rosemary, sea salt, garlic powder). Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes (depending on oven) at 425 degrees. Stir/flip every 5-10 minutes to avoid burning. When slight browning is noticed, sprinkle a couple hands-full of raisins over top and bake for 5 more minutes.

    Mango peach salsa & fresh avocado w/ Sea salt on brown rice-cakes.

    Praise God for amazing food!!

      Katie, these recipes sound really great! I would, however, check the ingredients on the SOY Cheese. I do believe there are additives and preservatives in it. =(
      Another easy Yam idea is to slice the yam in about 1/2″-1″ slices, wrap in foil and bake at 350* till tender. Unwrap and enjoy! You can drizzle a little olive oil and add salt and pepper if you’d like or other herbs or spices. I’m going to try adding the raisins! Sounds great!

    January 2, 2011
  11. I am starting my New Years Daniel Fast tomorrow! I am stationed in Afghanistan and I don’t have much access to the foods I will need, but I have complete faith that the Lord would not have led me on this fast if He didn’t know that I would be sustained. Please pray for me! Thank you!

    Hello Susan,
    I am on my 11th day of ffasting. I am really enjoying I am getting closer to members of my church and reading my Bible more. I just have one problem dressing for my salads. I have tried the one in your book, something keeps upsetting my stomach.Please hel I love my salads.

    March 20, 2010
    • Hi Charlotte,

      I am not sure what could be upsetting your stomach since you didn’t mention the dressing you made . . . and are you sure it’s the dressing? There are so many ways to dress salads. One of my favorite is just fresh lemon juice. I also make dressing with lemon juice, olive oil and herbs.

      You should be able to make a dressing that is similar to those you use when not fasting. Even if you usually eat dairy-based dressings, you can make some using soyannaise and they are very similar.

      Be blessed on your fast!

    another great recipe using quinoa:

    Quinoa Pilaf

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 onion, diced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 cups uncooked quinoa, rinsed
    1 cup canned lentils, rinsed
    8 ounces fresh mushrooms, chopped
    1 quart vegetable broth

    Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic, and saute 5 minutes, until onion is tender. Mix in quinoa, lentils, and mushrooms. Pour in the broth. Cover, and cook 20 minutes.
    Remove the pot from heat.

    • Thanks so much, Terry! Seems like a great addition to the meal plans.

    This is my second day on the Daniel fast can you use agave nectar.It is 100% pure sweetener not additives or preservatives. What kind of dressing can we put on a salad. Everything seems to have sugar or either milk.

    January 12, 2010
    • Hi Bertha,

      Agave nectar is great BEFORE the fast or AFTER the fast . . . but it is not allowed during the fast as no sweeteners are allowed even if they are natural.

      Regarding salad dressings, you can make your own with oil, vinegar, lemon juice and herbs . . . or on I enjoy is Newman’s Own Oil and Vinegar Salad Dressing. It has ingredients that comply with the Daniel Fast Guidelines. The Guideines are available at

    I’m confused about “cane juice”…. Is it ok? It’s in SOY MILK and TOFU???

    January 10, 2010
    • No, cane juice is a marketing term for sugar . . . it’s sugar from sugar cane before it’s been evaporated and granulated. You can find unsweetened soy milk and tofu without it.

      All together now . . . READ THE LABELS . . . :-)

    I am starting the 21 day Daniel fasting today as many churches are. My question is besides the food products that we are allowed to eat, are we allow to eat like tropical natural food such as casava, plantains, green bananas, etc. Thank you for all the help in advance. God bless you and all you do.

    January 10, 2010
    • Natalie,

      All plain fruits and vegetables are allowed on the Daniel Fast. I hope this helps!

      Be blessed!

    Is yogurt allowed on the Daniel Fast?

    January 7, 2010
    • No yogurt on the Daniel Fast as it’s a plant-based eating plan.

      January 7, 2010
      • Francene #

        What about un-sweetened almond yogurt and almond milk?

        January 10, 2014
      • Daniel Fast Team #

        Hi Francene,
        I’ve not found a vegan yogurt that is Daniel Fast friendly, but if you have and all ingredients are good then it would be fine.
        All Plant based milks (that are free of additives and sweeteners) such as almond milk, are allowed for use in recipes and on cereal just not as a drinking beverage. I hope this helps!

    Hello, Susan! I was so blessed to come across your blog. I’m equally blessed to learn of the number of people across the country, and I’m sure around the globe, who are seeking the face and hand of God in a concecrated way. I’ve been thoroughly enlightened and feel equipped to move forward on this journey. Thank you for the suggestion of keeping a prayer journal during this time.

    The Lord’s blessings remain upon you!

    I am excited about what God is doing in my life during this fast. Today I made a vegetable and barley stew with homemade whole wheat crackers from your recipe book. They were very good, too. God Bless You–this has been a wonderful source of information for me.

    Hi, I made the Bean curry and rice and it was wonderful. I adapted it to work with my schedule and did the following. I sauteed in a crock pot on high to start. I added everything in order but used 1 cup of lentil and diced toms instead of crushed. I also added carrots scrubbed and chopped. I used a tbs of sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Finally, I cooked on low overnight for 6 hours. I added a bag of frozen peas in the last hour. I served for dinner with hot brown rice.
