Daniel Fast Food Benefits for Health

Increasing your vegetable and fruit intake will have many physical advantages including a certain level of detoxification. As you plan your menus, consider the health benefits of the foods you include.

Here are just some of the benefits from specific foods:

Artichokes
Artichokes contain plant compounds known as caffeoylquinic acids, which increase the flow of bile and help to digest fats.

Beets
Beets contain betaine, which promotes the regeneration of liver cells and the flow of bile. It also has a beneficial effect on fat metabolism.

Broccoli
Broccoli and other members of the brassica family (cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, kohlrabi) support the liver’s detoxification enzymes.

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Food sources of vitamin C and glutathione, which are essential for detox.

Protein
Protein is required by the liver for detox. Beans, nuts, seeds, and quinoa. are just a few that you can add to your menus.

Onions and Garlic
Onions and garlic are rich in sulfur-containing compounds. Involved in sulfation, the main detox pathway for environmental chemicals and certain drugs and food additives. Helps with the elimination of harmful heavy metals from the body.

  2. Hi Cindy,

    Popcorn is a great snack during the Daniel Fast, however you will need to make sure the microwave variety doesn’t include ingredients that are not allowed on the Daniel Fast. I think Orville Rechbacher has an all natural brand. Of course, no butter is allowed.

    I usually just pop the popcorn on my stovetop with a little canola oil and then add salt. Recently I purchased an air popper and like it a lot!

    I hope this answers your question!
