Daniel Fast Menu

The Daniel Fast menu is whole plant foods in—or close to—their most natural state. The main food groups are:

  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Mushrooms
  • Intact Whole Grains
  • Legumes (beans, peas, lentils)
  • Nuts & Seeds
  • Herbs & Spices

Our Daniel Fast is focuses on restoring health, so we also omit oil. Oil contains a whopping 120 calories per tablespoon and can thwart weight loss efforts. Instead, we support eating whole plant fats such as seeds, nuts and avocados. As with any plant fats—if weight loss is a concern you’re encouraged to portion-control nuts, seeds and avocados limiting intake to 1 or 2 tablespoons a day.

If you are a regular caffeine drinker, consider reducing your intake over two to three days before the fast starts to avoid or minimize withdrawal headaches.*
