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.

    Hi Cycloria,
    Yes, plant based/soy/vegan cheese (which ever name you find it under) would be allowed, But… you need to make sure there are no chemicals and sweeteners, etc., in the ingredients. I hope this helps, Be Blessed!

  3. It all depends on how they are prepared. Ask your server how the veggies are cooked and make sure there is not butter or animal products and now sweeteners. They should be fine. A baked potato with steamed veggies and a drizzle of olive oil is a great restaurant meal.

    Be blessed!

    I cannot find the post that says what we can use to replace butter on the Daniel Fast. Is it Smart Balance?
