Daniel Fast and Spices
First off, all natural herbs and spices are acceptable on the Daniel Fast. In fact, making food more flavorful also helps it to be more satisfying and therefore meeting certain hunger needs our brain and body possess.
What is not acceptable? Those flavorings hiding in spice and herb bottles pretending to be what they are NOT! In other words, stay away from all the artificial stuff — MSG, bacon bits, butter buds, and the like. Read the labels and if there is any chemical on the listing, just put it back on the shelf (or into the garbage)!
This one word of caution — as you proceed through the fast, your body is cleansing itself. Your taste-buds may become more sensitive and therefore may not need as much salt, seasoning, or flavoring.
So keep this in mind while your are fasting. On one hand you want to increase spices and herbs to make the dishes more flavorful. But at the same time you need to make sure you season and salt “to taste” since those little buds are in transition.
