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

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


Sliced fruit

Hot whole-grain cereal with raisins and nuts

Juice on the cereal


Hearty Layered Salad and Greek Vegetable Stew


Vegetarian Chili and a Green Salad with dressing

Lentil Soup and a Green Salad with dressing


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!

  2. After reading your different menus above, I actually eat like that anyway, however I do have a question & that Is ” Are trail mix ( without the candy ) allowed on the Daniel fasting ?

  7. No, the only beverage on the Daniel Fast is water (See Daniel 1:12).

    Be blessed
