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.

        Sugar that is naturally derived in the food is allowed. Sugar Added to foods, is not allowed. I hope this helps!

      • Daniel Fast Team #

        Smoothies that are free of added sweeteners and/or chemicals are allowed on the Daniel Fast. They are not considered a beverage (the only beverage on the Daniel Fast is water), but rather a liquid meal.

    Im currently going through a rough patch emotionally; is it ok to partake, i also missed the first two days, can i start on the 3rd day?

    January 15, 2013
    • Hi Thembi,

      Yes, you are fine to go on the fast (be sure to follow the fast that is outlined on this site and in the book) and actually it might be good since you will focus more time with God. There seems to be issues in your life that are causing problems . . . make finding God’s wisdom about this matter your purpose for fasting. He will lead you and direct you as you being these issues to Him in prayer.

      Yes, you can start the Daniel Fast at any time . . . and just continue to do it for 21 days.

      Be blessed!

  5. Can you have Boco Vegan Burgers and Vegan ground meat on the Daniel’s fast?

    January 15, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Morgan,
      Yes. However, it’s all about the Ingredients, and what’s in them. You will need to read the ingredients label since most prepared vegan burgers do include egg whites, animal proteins, sweeteners, additives, and/or Yeast to some degree, (all which are not allowed). You may very well decide to make your own, of which we have several recipes in The Daniel Fast book and in The Daniel Fast Cookbook – Version II – both available at http://daniel-fast.com/store.html Be Blessed on your Fast!

      January 15, 2013

    I’m trying to find more snack foods, are baked potato chips okay? And baked tostitos scoops package says all natural, made with whole corn and oil?

    January 14, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Leea,
      It is a combination of the Ingredients list (no sweeteners, additives etc.) and How they are cooked (no deep fried foods) baked only. So check out both aspects of any product to see if it complies with the guidelines, if all is good then ..yay! You’re good to go, if still questionable, then pass on it. I hope this helps!

      • shandy #

        Would one not also have to be carefull of the spices in the products. i know some spices used are themselves tainted with preservatives and chemicals. Thing is they do not tell you what is int he spices they use just what the product is made of.

        January 29, 2013
      • Daniel Fast Team #

        Hi Shandy,
        Legally they do have to list the ingredients in the product. So, as with all other foods we need to read the Ingredients list for seasonings and spices as well. Be Blessed!

        January 29, 2013

    I thought no animal product could be used? So chicken can be used? Can chicken broth be used? Thank you.

    January 14, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      No, chicken broth cannot be used. The Daniel fast is totally plant based, so vegetable broth is what you will want to be looking for. Be Blessed!

  12. Virginia #

    You gave a lengthy answer to Daniel Ivanov’s January 10 question above but you never did directly answer his question, which is mine too: “Why can’t we drink juice and herbal tea?”

    January 14, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Virginia,
      One of the two foundational scriptures for the Daniel Fast is Daniel 1:12 “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, fruit and the like are all considered grown from seed…. And Water only. I hope this helps!

  13. Shawnika #

    Can you eat wheat bread on the fast?

    January 14, 2013
    • Leavening is not allowed on the Daniel Fast. So typical wheat bread would not be allowed. You can have flat breads like whole grain tortillas and Indian flat bread (nan or chapatti) which are made with whole grain flour, water, oil and salt.

      Be blessed!

    Can corn tortillas be eaten while doing the Daniel fast?

    January 14, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Corn tortillas and other whole grain tortillas are fine on the fast, they are considered Unleavened bread. Just make sure there are no leavening, sugars or additives in the Ingredients. Be Blessed!

    I have a question I brought this no chicken noodle soup it has tofu in place of tofu. But my question is it has noodles made with semolina flour.. Can I have semolina flour ?

    January 14, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Keisha,
      Semolina is a processed flour that the bran and germ have been removed leaving the starchy endosperm, so it’s not allowed on the Daniel Fast. Durum wheat, is another (possibly unfamiliar term) you’ll find in pasta ingredients list. Even though 100 percent durum wheat isn’t as dark of a color as something labeled “whole wheat,” it actually is a coarsely ground whole grain, so it’s allowed on the fast.

      January 17, 2013

    Is there a vegetable broth that I can purchase that does not have cane sugar or some form of sugar?

    January 14, 2013

    Hello,
    Great Blog. Thanks for the awesome service your entire team is providing to us all concerning biblical fasting and specifically the ins and out of the Daniel Fast. My question today is about the breakfast cereal “RALSTON.” It says 100% wheat hot cereal on the box and the ingredients say 100% milled wheat (and contain wheat ingredients). Is this allowed as an alternative to oatmeal?

    January 14, 2013
    • Hi Miguel,

      Yes, it’s a perfect choice for the Daniel Fast.

      Thanks for your kind words . . . be blessed on your fast!

    Just wondering is store bought kettle corn popcorn okay to eat on the fast?

    January 14, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Kettle corn has sugar in it, so it would not be allowed on the fast. Be Blessed!

    • Dionna #

      what exactly is meant by popped popcorn. can i have the non butter style popcorn from Orville Redenbachers and the like.

      January 17, 2013
      • Yes, popcorn is one of the preferred snacks on the Daniel Fast. The best option is popcorn prepared on the stove top or in a popper (air or traditional). You can also use microwave popcorn, but you need to make sure the ingredients are only popcorn, oil, salt and natural preservatives such as tocopherols. Artificial flavors and butter would not be allowed.

        Be blessed!

    January 14, 2013
    • Yes, this would be an acceptable things to do.

    Your are correct but using organic brown rice and wild rice is a good replacement, which I used for my veggie soup I made this past Saturday and it was great! I used “Bob’s Red Mill” brand; just wonderful nutty taste!

    PTL. i am about to start the daniel fast but suffer constipation due to my 2 previous c- sections. i usually take green tea alone to help with me out a bit. in my case, would you recommend me to take my tea?? GBY by the way, you are doing an amazing job answering these questions. blessing. and i thank God for people like yourself. truly amazing.

    January 14, 2013
    • Hi Miriam,

      Your physical issue would put you in the “special diet” category and so it would be appropriate for you to drink the tea. However, most people are amazed at the changes in their elimination during the fast since there is so much fiber in the whole foods. So if you find you don’t need the tea, it would be best to pass on it.

      Be blessed!

    Hello

    i posted a comment last week about allowing myself 1 cup of coffee and also allowing myself to use chicken broth to cook some bean dishes. I don’t see the post and am wondering what happened? I was asking for your opinion and advice concerning modifying the fast in small ways to allow more success. Of course, I don’t eat red meat, sweets, sugar (i never eat white sugar anyway – always use a sugar substitute which i continue to use on the fast), so I am giving up many things that usually part of my diet. I am drinking water like a camel and don’t drink any other beverages, save for the 1 cup of coffee that I must have to be alert for work in early AM.

    Portobello mushrooms are my new meat!

    Please share your thoughts on my method – I was successful doing it last year, I got closer to the Lord and also shed 15 lbs. At that time, I did eat Ezekiel bread, but you’ve pointed out that it has leaven so now it’s a no-no. I do eat a lot of Ezekiel cereal though :)

    May God Richly Bless you,
    Karyn

    January 14, 2013
    • Hi Karyn,

      As you can imagine, we are slammed with comments . . . right now there are still nearly 200 in our inbox and there are only a couple answering them.

      Mushrooms are a good option and portobellos a great choice.

      Regarding my opinion on you using coffee and chicken broth . . . and asking me if it’s “okay.” I guess I would encourage you to pray and examine your heart and be clear about why you choose to change the boundaries of the fast and use these foods even though they are not part of the guidelines. Some people need to modify the fast for health reason, such as pregnant and nursing mothers, athletes who regularly expend a lot of energy, or people with medical issues. But others who want to modify the fast without a special need . . . I can only conclude it is so they can continue to feed their flesh.

      Fasting gives us a powerful opportunity to look at ourselves, the way we think things through and to see if there are areas in our lives we need to address so that we can be transformed by the renewing of our minds.

      Back to your original question: is it okay to “bend the rules” without a special needs reason . . . no, not if you want to comply with the guidelines of the Daniel Fast.

      I hope this helps . . . be blessed as you wrestle with these issues.

      January 15, 2013
      • Karyn #

        hi susan,

        thanks for your honest reply on modifying the fast. there seem to be so many schools of thought on what is allowed on the “Daniel” fast and what is not. for instance, meat substitutes are OK but sugar substitutes are not – why? if you can placate your body for the meat, why not for the sugar? but i don’t want to digress into a debate on anything here. everybody that even has a mind to fast or give up certain foods for the sake of drawing closer to the Lord is already blessed :)

        my pastor, pastor Jim Cymbala of Brooklyn Tabernacle, told us at the beginning of January that if we eat ANY solid or liquid meals, anything that fortifiies or feeds the body, we are not actually fasting, but dieting.

        he recommended that we try to totally fast for at least 3 days and then choose to give up certain foods, or fast between 6am and 6pm (6 to 6 fast), or to choose one food item to give up for the remainder of the month. i did fast for 3 days on just water. so i am going to say that between his advice and your comments, i have chosen to give up red and white meats, sugar and all desserts made with sugar, wine (except for communion), and all beverages except water, coffee and tea. anytime we eat, we’re really not fasting because our flesh is still being fed, albeit from different foods.

        i want to be pleasing to the Lord and believe me, i certainly miss the foods i’ve given up to show Him that i’m serious about drawing closer to Him to discover His plan and purpose for me this year and also for breakthroughs in intecessory prayers for some in my family afflicted with addictions and other problems or those unsaved.

        the Lord knows our hearts and He is drawing closer to me as I go through this time of giving up many foods and spending more time in prayer, so thank you, but i’m really not wrestling with my choices :)

        thank you again for all the encouragement and advice you share with everyone here.

        Rich blessings to you,
        Karyn

        January 15, 2013
      • Hi again Karyn,

        There are many ways to fast . . . this site is all about the Daniel Fast. Even with that there is a lot of teaching out there and people who teach different principles. I have done extensive research and the fast is based on the Scriptures, Jewish teaching that would have influenced Daniel and the foundation of information about the fast since it first emerged decades ago.

        Be blessed as you continue to grow in the love and grace of Jesus.

        January 15, 2013
  26. On the Daniel fast can you eat Oat Bran hot cereal. Also, why can’t you eat fries cooked in Peanut oil. What is the difference if you eat hash potatoes and sauteed vegetables cooked in peanut oil if you did have olive oil or canola oil.

    January 14, 2013
    • Yes, Dana, oat bran is allowed on the Daniel Fast. You can use oil to sauté food on the Daniel Fast, but deep frying is not allowed as it is considered part of the “delicacies” category.

      Be blessed!

    You said the original Triscuit crackers are ok, is that the only cracker? Is Totasdos Harvest Whole wheat crackers by Keepler acceptable?

    January 14, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Ruthie,
      Any baked whole grain (free of sweeteners & additives) cracker is allowed on the fast. Triscuits originals is just one of the more common and easy to find ones. So check the ingredients on your Keepler crackers to make sure they are Daniel Fast friendly (and baked), if so then you’re good to go. Be Blessed!

      January 17, 2013

    Hi Susan

    Is unsweetened almond milk ok?

    January 14, 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.

      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. You can also have unsweetened plant-based milks that are free of man-made chemicals.

      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.

      Hi Jenn,
      It’s a combination of the Ingredients list (no sweeteners, additives etc.) and How they are cooked (no deep fried foods) baked only. So check them out to see if they comply with the guidelines. I hope this helps!

      January 15, 2013
  34. Bryan #

    Since the Daniel Fast consists of foods without chemicals, shouldn’t all of the fruit/veggies be organic? Any food that is not organic has had chemical/pesticides sprayed on them and washing them does not get it off. You stated that the foods cannot contain chemicals in the ingredients, based on that statement if you do not eat organic you are eating foods with chemicals. Thanks!

    January 14, 2013
    • Hi Bryan,

      If you are able to purchase only organic foods, then that is great. I try to do that, also. I especially try to purchase organic produce that can’t be peeled before consuming such as grapes, lettuce, broccoli, etc. However, organic food is usually more expensive and many people can’t afford it. Also, if we were required to have no chemicals whatsoever, that could be carried out to a level that most of us couldn’t comply with.

      So, those who teach about the Daniel Fast agree that added chemicals are what we should not consume . . . and thus people read the labels and study the ingredients so they can follow the fasting guidelines.

      I hope this helps.

    Hallo Susan, thank you for this very helpful site. Are we allowed puffed wheat cereal. It contains 100% wheat and gluten and nothing else. Many thanks and God bless.

    Hi There, can someone please advise Fry’s range of soya products is permitted during the fast?

    January 14, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Yaadhna,
      Soy products are allowed on the fast. However, you will need to read the Ingredients list for each of Fry’s soya products to make sure that all other ingredients are also Daniel Fast friendly. I hope this helps!

      Natural or kosher salt is allowed. Sugar is not (sweeteners of any kind is not allowed on the fast). I hope this helps!

  40. I ate some sweet wheat rolls was that ok. This is my first time doing this and I’m still confuse on what I should and should not eat. Can u please help me and break it down for me. I’m in my 7th day and I have 14 more days to go. I’m tryin not to mess up.

    January 13, 2013
    • No, Gloria, leavening is not allowed on the Daniel Fast so the wheat rolls would not be okay.

      I suggest you study this site as everything is spelled out. Even better, get a copy of the Daniel Fast book. It has everything you need for a successful fast and will take away all confusion.

      Be blessed!

  41. What happens if you come off for one day? I recently lost my uncle and my family will have a huge dinner after the funeral and i wanted to go to the dinner with them. Will I have to start all over?

      Hi Brenda,
      There are circumstances when one must push the “pause button” on their fast. That’s what you can do since you have this family funeral coming up. Continue to be in an attitude of prayer . . . and continue on in your fast after. Be Blessed in all you do!

    I want to know if agave nectar can be used

    January 13, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      There are no sweeteners of any kind allowed on the fast (natural or artificial), so no agave nectar while on the fast. I hope this helps!

    Also, you keep mentioning that water is the only drinking beverage allowed, but in the list above it does state that we can have fruit juice. Care to clarify? Also, then could I have vegetable juice?

    January 13, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi James,
      You can use 100% juices (fruit and vegetable) and unsweetened plant-based milks for use in recipes, just not as a drinking beverage. I hope this helps!

    I was curios, I noticed you’re not supposed to eat eggs but whole wheat pasta is allowed. Eggs are used in making pasta. How does that work?

    January 13, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      You read alot of Ingredients labels until you find one that has no eggs. Be Blessed on your Journey!

    Are there any particular seasonings that are allowed? Any type of butter of flavoring product?

    January 13, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Teshari,
      All spices, salt, pepper and seasonings are allowed, as long as they are natural & free of additives and sweeteners. Re butter flavored products: You are better to use olive oil since solid fats are not allowed on the Daniel Fast. Be Blessed!

    Can you eat steel cut oats?

    January 13, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Scarlett,
      Yes, Oatmeal (steel cut oats, old fashioned oats, quick-cooking oats) are all great whole grains for on the fast, and every day too! Be Blessed on your Fast!

    Hi! I’m currently preparing to start the Daniel Fast. Are pretzels allowed to be eaten? Also, are there any kinds of cereals that are allowed? Thanks!

    January 13, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Austin,
      You will quickly get used to the plea to READ THE INGREDIENTS to find out what is included in the packaged foods you purchase. Pretzels typically have yeast and/or sugar in them which are not allowed on the fast (so read your Ingredients list to make sure). For a salty crunchy snack you can have Original Triscuits. Ezekiel brand cereals, and some varieties of Shredded Wheat, ex: http://www.arrowheadmills.com/product/shredded-wheat-cereal There are also several cereals found in the Natural Foods section of grocery stores or at Health Food stores (you’ll just need to read some Ingredients labels, to check for natural sugars added in them), and then there is always good Old Fashioned Oatmeal…. another favorite is Muesli. Be blessed!

    This is a great source of information…thank you. Are BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) supplementation allowed?

    January 13, 2013
    • Hi Ryan,

      From what we can tell they would be allowed, however the key is in the ingredients and to be sure they are all natural and include no sweeteners.

      Be blessed!

    am i allow to have wheat toast on the Danial fast

    January 13, 2013
    • Daniel Fast Team #

      Hi Robert,
      Wheat toast has either yeast or some other kind of leavening, therefore, it would not be allowed on the Daniel Fast. A good alternative would be rice cakes made from brown rice. Be blessed on your fast!

    Hello, can you tell me if items from this site are ok while on the Daniel Fast?
    http://naturebox.com/foods

    Thanks, Mary.

    January 13, 2013
    • Hi Mary,

      I would wonder if there was added sweetener. The site says “no artificial sweeteners,” but on the Daniel Fast no sweeteners are allowed. So if even natural sweeteners are used, then they would not be allowed on the fast.

      Be blessed.
