Food List

“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

 

One of the great things about the Daniel Fast is that you are not limited to any specific amount of food, but rather to the kinds of food you can eat. The Daniel Fast is limited to vegetables (includes fruits) and water.

 

If you want a print out of this list in brochure form to use yourself or share with others, please visit www.Daniel-Fast.com

The Daniel Fast – available at all local and online bookstores.

Special Note: if you have health issues, please be sure to contact your health professional for advice before committing to any fast including the Daniel Fast. If you would like a list of the foods included and excluded in the Daniel Fast to show your doctor, just copy the contents of this page. Also, if you are interested in a collection of recipes that will take you through an entire 21-day Daniel fast, click here.

After answering hundreds of questions about the Daniel Fast, I am updating the food guidelines. My hope is that it will serve as a more complete list. The original list used by many people was issued in a book about fasting. I know the author tried to do the best he could, but that isn’t the same as getting hundreds of questions seeking clarification. So here is the new list that I hope helps.

Please make sure to READ THE LABEL when purchasing packaged, canned or bottled foods. They should be sugar-free and chemical-free. Keep this in mind as you review this list of acceptable foods.

      I am not familiar with that. If it is a Whole grain, No yeast, baking soda, baking powder etc. Just very simple Ingredients, such as: Whole grain flour, oil, water, maybe salt (and not deep fried) and should look more like a flat bread or tortilla, then it would be fine. Be Blessed!

    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Antonio,
      Re: peanut butter – Yes, if free of sweeteners and additives (Adams 100% Natural is a good choice)
      honey roasted peanuts – No honey roasted, there is no sweeteners of any kind allowed (no honey) Regular salted or unsalted peanuts are fine, just check the Ingredients.
      brown rice – Yes
      chili peppers or hot sauce – Yes for the peppers (all vegetables are allowed) Hot Sauce is fine If all the Ingredients are Daniel Fast friendly.
      Or:
      drink – Water is the only drinking beverage on the fast.
      crystal light – No (Full of chemical additives and sweeteners).
      V 8 fusion – No (Water is the only drinking beverage on the fast). I hope this helps!

    Shoot… I ate a type of cereal that had malasses in it. I was careless to check. Does that mean I have to start the fast all over again?

    January 9, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Nope, just make the corrections so you are wiser and more aware next time, and continue on in your fast. Be Blessed!

      January 10, 2013
  5. You’ll need to check out the list of ingredients. A lot of the prepared dressings include sugar, which is not allowed on the the Daniel Fast. There are a few now that are sugar-free including Hunt’s (in a can, use it as your base and add onions, bell peppers and herbs to it), Wolfgang Puck and others. I’m not sure about Prego or Ragu.

    Be blessed!

    January 9, 2013
    • antonio #

      yeah I’ve been having the same problem too can you recommend some of the dressing we can use thank you

      January 10, 2013
      • Daniel Fast Team #

        A prepared dressing that fits the Daniel Fast is Newman’s Own Oil and Vinegar Salad Dressing. You can also make your own salad dressings, there are many recipes in the Daniel Fast Cookbooks http://www.daniel-fast.com I hope this helps!

        January 10, 2013
    • Genetta Douglas #

      The original question does not come up for me and in this post you mention dressings, but then go on to speak about Hunt’s, Prego, and Ragu which are spaghetti sauces so I am not sure what was being asked. Most spaghetti sauces have sugar and I found the Hunt’s to be very bland. Recently though I discovered Meijer brand Chunky Marinara. It is very delicious and should fit for the DF. (it says it contains critic acid which I believe is fine says it also says that it contains no preservatives or additives.)

      January 11, 2013
      • Daniel Fast Team #

        Remember regaring bland sauces, you can always use them as a base and vamp them up with additional seasonings (I often make my own out of tomato paste, water, garlic, italian seasoning, salt and anything else I can find that sounds good). Any brand of sauce that has no sweeteners or additives is a good one for the fast (and yes, you’re correct critic acid is allowed). Be Blessed!

    Hi, my church and I will be starting the DF on Friday January 11 until January 25. Will i be able to drink black coffee?

    January 9, 2013
    • Hi Trina,

      The Daniel Fast is based on the fasting experiences of Daniel, including Daniel 1:12, which tells us this: Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.

      So the only beverage on the Daniel Fast is water. You can use 100% juices in recipes. Also, you can make meal replacements with juice.

      Also, since the fast is water only, then no tea. However you can add lemon or mint sprigs to water.

      Be blessed on your fast.

    Hello I’m starting the Daniel fast, is salt allowed?

        January 18, 2013
      • Daniel Fast Team #

        Sea salt or kosher salt (additive free), both are available at the local grocery store.

    I am thankful for this helpful blog. Frist time doing a fast. I am excited and feeling closer to God as I do this sacrifice for him. I have a question anout sugar free gum can or can’t be chewed.

    January 9, 2013
    • Hi Jenny,

      No, they all include sweeteners or chemicals in the ingredients, so they are not allowed.

      You can chew mint leaves, suck on cloves or cinnamon stick or rinse your mouth with lemon water.

      Be blessed!

    Can I have a fruit smoothie using almond milk? Can I eat peanut butter?

    January 9, 2013
    • Yes, you can have smoothies as “liquid meals.” You need to use unsweetened almond milk . . .

      And yes, peanut butter made with peanuts and salt is allowed on the fast.

      Be blessed!

    Can u have whole wheat wraps? Like the kind u can use for like tacos, etc.

    January 9, 2013
    • Yes, Jenny, but you need to study the list of ingredients to make sure they are free of chemicals and other items not allowed on the fast Check out the Ezekiel 4:9 Whole Grain wraps. You may need to get them in a health food store.

      Be blessed.

    I was eatting 100%whole wheat bread but it has yeast n high fructose corn syrup.their really nothing that I can eat ima have to stick with the drinks …

    January 9, 2013
    • Hi Kordell,

      There are so man foods . . . the food list has lots of choices. If you are looking only for foods you can purchase in the grocery store that are ready to eat, you may have a tougher time, but there are good options there, too.

      Be blessed

    Are cigarettes allowed while fasting?

    January 9, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Clearly, the Lord would have you quit smoking.The two foundational scriptures for the fast are Daniel 1:12 says, “Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.” Pulse is food grown from seed . . . (corn, potatoes, wheat, rice and the like are all considered grown from seed). And, Dan. 10:3 – I ate no pleasant or desirable food, nor did any meat or wine come into my mouth; …Because of this, we eat no sweeteners of any kind, no deep fried foods and no fancy desserts, water is the only drinking beverage. We also don’t use any stimulants such as “caffeine” or alcohol (including nicotine, which is a substance that acts as a stimulant in our bodies).
      Remember, the Lord has given us the responsibility to care for our body – Which was bought with a price and is the Temple of the Holy Spirit. I encourage you to ask this question to the Holy Spirit, let Him be your Guide, Strength, and Counselor. Be Blessed on your Journey!

      You’ll want to read the Ingredients list, both of these have sweeteners in them. There’s no sweeteners of any kind allowed on the fast. Be blessed!

    Can I eat yellow rice on the daniel fast?

    January 9, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      In most cases, yellow rice is ordinary white rice that is prepared with a spice such as saffron or turmeric. These spices give the rice its trademark appearance and flavor. However, the White rice is not a whole grain so it is not allowed on the fast. You can use a brown rice or any other whole grain rice and using the same spices get a Daniel Fast version. Be Blessed!

      January 9, 2013
  17. Gail #

    Tofu is listed as a food we can eat but I read tofu is a processed food. I am confused whether I can eat or not.

    January 9, 2013
    • Hi Gail,

      Processed means that the food has had the good nutrients removed from it, as is the case with white flour and white rice. Tofu is a whole food (soy beans) and the nutrients are still intact. I don’t know where you read it was processed. I would be interested in the source so I can answer more completely.

      Be blessed on your fast.

      January 9, 2013
  18. taneisah@yahoo.com #

    Ok I have a question, I like the beans but i generally cook mine with meat, can i cook with the meat and then just not eat the meat.

    January 9, 2013
    • No, you can’t use meat, even for flavoring. There are a lot of really good herbs and species you can use . . . discovery time :-)

      Be blessed!

    i have some penne pasta that has whole grain durum, wheat flour, semolina, durum wheat flour, oat fiber. Is this allowed
    Blessings, Judy

    January 9, 2013
    • If the package says Whole Grains, then you are good. It sounds like the type I use, which I prefer over 100% whole wheat.

      Be blessed!

    Our ministry is starting the Daniel Fast and the question of white rice and potatoes continues to be a source of great contention…can you help clear this up?

    January 9, 2013
    • The Daniel Fast is plant-based, whole foods. White rice is not a whole food, but instead a processed food where the goodness of the rice has been removed and only the starch is left. Brown rice is allowed on the fast.

      White potatoes are allowed on the fast as they are a whole food.

      I hope this helps.

      Be blessed

    Hi are tortillas okay or are they not allowed?

    January 8, 2013
    • All about the ingredients. Most have a long list of ingredients and chemicals that are hard to pronounce. However, Ezekiel 4:9 has whole grain tortillas that are perfect for the Daniel Fast. Even though my supermarket has a large natural foods section, I still have to get these tortillas at the local health food store.

      I hope this helps!

    • Kimberly #

      nikki, I had a hard time finding corn tortillas without the chemicals and preservatives. We like mexican food so I kept hunting. I was about to give up when I noticed a brand I had not used and it contained only stoneground corn, salt, and a trace of lime. You might try a different grocery store (or two) so you have access to multiple brands.

    I see peanut butter is on the list, but when I look at the ingredients, I see sugar listed. My question is what kind of peanut butter is ok for the Daniel Fast??

    January 8, 2013
    • Hi Lauren

      My preferred brand is Adam’s Peanut Butter. Look for a peanut butter that has only peanuts and salt as the ingredients. There are many on the market these days as people are getting away from so much sugar and hydrogenated shortening in their diets.

      Be blessed.

      January 9, 2013
  25. Why is it ok to have soy and almond milk but not fruit juice?

    January 8, 2013
    • The Daniel Fast is based on the fasting experiences of Daniel, including Daniel 1:12, which tells us this: Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.

    Ok so I see it says u can have veggie burgers but what type of bun/bread can I have with it

    January 8, 2013
    • No bun . . . and you need to make sure you study the ingredients included in the veggie burgers as many of them include sweeteners and dairy products.

      There are several recipes in the Daniel Fast book so you can make your own . . .

    Specifically what cereals can I eat in this fast?

    January 8, 2013
    • Hi Demenna,

      All whole grains are allowed. If you are talking about boxed cereals there are few. You will need to look at the list of ingredients to make sure they all comply with the fast. Shredded wheat is fine. Ezekiel has a few boxed cereals. Most people use oatmeal or muesli along with dried or fresh fruits, nuts and spices with unsweetened soy milk or juice.

      I hope this helps.

    I LOVE this site! I thank & praise God that He is using you Susan with helping in God’s purpose for all of our lives. I have a couple of questions with preparing meals? I normally season my cabbage w/ salt pork. Is there anything I can use that can give that type of seasoning? Also with preparing beans, I use smoke turkey for seasoning. Is there anything I can use other than spices, to acquire a better to bland pot of beans? Thank you for ALL that you do. I know God is smiling on the work you do for the building of HIS kingdom. To God Be The Glory!

    January 8, 2013
    • Hi Cherry,

      Seems like the fast is providing an opportunity for you to discover some new flavors! :-) No animal products are allowed on the fast, even just for flavoring. I don’t know of what to do recreate the flavor . . . but I do know there are wonderful and satisfying meals with all plant-based ingredients.

      Be blessed and thanks for your kind words.

    Can I take anything for the constipation ?

    January 8, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Due to the high fiber on the fast, rarely do we hear of people getting constipated on the Daniel Fast. So, how is your water intake? As a general rule you need to be drinking half your body weight in ounces ie., 160 lbs = 80 ounces of water per day. . . from there it would be good to evaluate the foods you are eating to see if the combinations of the foods or the types are promoting constipation. I hope this helps, Be Blessed!

      Hi Shirley,
      Yes. When medication is necessary, by all means take it as needed during the fast. “If” and when you have the option of medication that is free of sweeteners or man-made chemicals all the better. I hope this helps, Be Blessed!

My bf and i decided to fast for 7 days and today is the last day. we have sincerely tried to use the time being thankful for all God has provided and it has really humbled us to see just how many natural foods we were given. it is also depressing to recognize how easily the flesh is tempted and believes it is satisfied by the things not good for us. i’ve done so well and today i found Tostitos natural blue corn tortilla chips and all of the ingredients are within the fast but after eating about 13 chips it occured to me perhaps they had been fried in the natural oil… idk. would these be acceptable? the bag does not say baked or fried and i’ve seen them as acceptable on SOME sites but idk. ingerdients: organic blue corn, expeller-pressed sunflower oil and sea salt

    • Hi Aimee,

      The chips were probably deep fried, which is not allowed on the fast.

      Now that you know better you can do better . . . don’t beat yourself up. It was an honest mistake.

      Be blessed!

    Istarted daniel fast but I weightlift can I useor take my supperments ?

    January 8, 2013
    • Yes, Kevin, you can use supplements. Best to use unsweetened plant-based supplements, however as a weight lifter you would be in the category of one who needs a “special diet.”

      I hope this helps.

    Hi Susan,

    What can we use to keep our breath freshened and to prevent the dry mouth? Are sugar free gums allowed?

    January 8, 2013
    • No, they all include sweeteners or chemicals in the ingredients, so they are not allowed.

      You can chew mint leaves, suck on cloves or cinnamon stick or rinse your mouth with lemon water.

      Be blessed!

  44. Hi, Two questions please. Firstly if you are allowed fruit then can I have fuit juice that is 100% juice with nothing else added? Also if I have orgainic herbal tea or hotwater with a spig of mint in it is this ok? We are on the second day of our 21 days and I want to get this right. Thanks Leah

    • Hi Leah,

      The Daniel Fast is based on the fasting experiences of Daniel, including Daniel 1:12, which tells us this: Prove thy

      servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.

      So the only beverage on the Daniel Fast is water. You can use 100% juices in recipes. Also, you can make meal replacements

      with juice.

      Also, since the fast is water only, then no tea. However you can add lemon or mint sprigs to water.

      Be blessed on your fast.

      Be blessed!

    • Thank you so much, Ann.

      I hope the best for you on your fast.

  49. If smoothies are made using all the ok’ed ingredients does that not pass due to it’s “drink” nature. It saves so much time. Can I just call it a soup? LOL Seriously what are your thoughts on smoothies (with all good ingredients, might it be acceptable for the Daniel Fast? I often tell my kids, “imagine your eating a plate of blueberries, lettuce, etc. smiling.”

    January 7, 2013
    • Yes, you can have smoothies as they are considered meal replacements or “liquid meal.” To make them even more hearty and more filing, you might want to add protein such as unsweetened soy protein powder or ground up oatmeal.

      Be blessed!

    I would like to try the Daniel Fast but I definitely do not want to lose weight – any suggestions. Also is coconut water allowed?

    January 7, 2013
    • Hi Beverley,

      As long as you eat enough calories on the Daniel Fast you will not lose weight. Many people do lose weight, but you can also plan your meals to have more foods with higher calorie counts and do fine.

      Be blessed!
