I just finished Day 1 of my 21 day Daniel Fast. I didn’t pass out, I wasn’t starving and I’m really glad I decided to do this. I didn’t make it to the grocery store until after work today, so I had to scramble just a bit for the first day. I make a large pot of whole grain, whole wheat pasta with veggies Sunday evening, which served as lunch. I supplemented that with a big salad of spinach, tomatoes, carrots and broccoli. I also had some fruit as a snack. For dinner, I went to my lifegroup (church small group) and our wonderful host made a delicious stew with potatoes, spinach and beans. It was delightful. I have also found some quiet time during the day to pray and reflect and that was nice. I also made a big run to Trader Joes and bought a ton of fruits, veggies and things that will help me be successful while on the fast. I am particularly excited because I just ordered a pineapple corer which is going to allow me to enjoy pineapple (one of my favorite fruits) much easier. Below are some of the yummy goodies I bought last night. I also bought almond milk (for the first time), oats, whole wheat flour and lots more fruit!
If you are fasting, what has been your go-to meal? What didn’t quite work out?
