Is Dairy on the Daniel Fast?
I’ve been asked this question a few times, and the answer is, “No.” The typical Daniel Fast is void of all animal products, so that would leave out meat, poultry, fish, eggs, cheese, milk, butter and all other dairy products.
Many people, who “just can’t live without their milk” turn to soy if they want to adhere strictly to the Daniel Fast Food List. I use an organic soy milk that is “unsweetened” as most brands include sugar or “cane juice,” which is sugar before it is processed into its granulated form.
Hungry for cheese, meat or chicken? A great substitute is tofu (made from soy). If you have never tried tofu, the Daniel Fast may be a good time to give it a go! Most tofu is pretty bland and picks up the flavors of the accompanying foods, flavorings or sauces. So tofu is an excellent substitute for meat and cheese. Search this weblog for both “soy” and “tofu” to find recipes using these ingredients.
