Daniel Fast Recipes by Pittbaby(f): 10:36pm On Mar 01, 2011
The Daniel fast is a 21 day fast based on Daniel's commitment to eat only Fruits and Vegetables . The modern day Daniel fast is more flexible but the basic requirements remain the same

No animal flesh - Fish  included

No Dairy products or other animal byproducts - Milk, Cheese, eggs  and Yogurt

Only water - No other beverage  even fruit juice - You can eat fruits or make a fruit puree - absolutely no alcohol

No fried food - You can not fry plantain and call it a Daniel fast

No sugar- No sugar can be added to your meal

No artificial preservatives or flavours - this will rule out most packaged foods -  you will have to buy most items fresh and cook yourself ( e.g. no baked beans or canned vegetables with any additives beyond salt).

what is allowed - Fruits, Vegetables, Spices , nuts and high quality oils ( i.e olive oil  in contolled quantities )


The aim of the fast is spiritual growth ( you have to pray and read your bible everyday ) and physical healing ( through prayer and a detox - this is also cleanse diet)


There are several Daniel fast recipes  on line , but they are all for European and American palates . As a Naija girl i am looking for suggestions on what can be cooked naija style with the restrictions above .

What I have so far

- Boiled plantain and Mixed steamed vegetables
- Beans and Plantain Pottage
- Beans and Corn
- Potatoes and Mixed vegetables Pottage
- Fruit salad for breakfast, and fruits as a snack
- Green Salads with beans nuts or fruits ( no dressing - i am still sketchy on if Vinegar is allowed so you can make your own dressing)


Additional suggestions are welcome . I am on day one , twenty more to go . feel free to join me there are several resources and devotionals on line that can guide your prayer life during the fast .

I know this is several years past the last 0ost but I want to revive this of possible

My fast foods were

Breakfast - fruit smoothie (banana, pineapple and other fruits) plus 1 cup groundnut or cashews. I don't usually eat breakfast so I can get away with such small quantities

Lunch/dinner--brown spaghetti (whole wheat) with stew and mushrooms, moimoi with vegetable maggi, beans but instead of palmoil, I made a stew concoction like agonyi beans style and vegetable oil. Local rice and stew (no meat). Pounded yam and Okra and stew (efo with vegetable oil didn't taste good to me)
I also tried a lot of Indian food because they are vegetarian so they have some sweet recipes
My biggest issue was to make sure I eat a lot of protein because we rely too much on meat normally
