Welcome to a very unusual Saturday post on Tastefully Gluten Free!
Today is kind of a big day. Steve and I are starting a Daniel Fast!
If you’re not familiar, fasting is a Christian practice of limiting food combined with prayer that brings you closer to God. A Daniel Fast, in particular, comes from the bible in the book of Daniel. We see Daniel eat certain foods and avoid others for a three week time period. An over simplified way to think of the Daniel Fast is that it is a vegan, sugar free, bread free diet.
This is both daunting and exciting! Since I already have limitations with food I have not done much fasting in the past. It’s a bit nerve wracking to take an already limited diet and cut even more out!
For the duration of our fast I’m going to post what I eat on a daily basis. Hopefully this can give other celiacs help and confidence if they want to do a similar fast. Minimally, at least it will help me remember which meals were successes and which were not, and be a compiliation of fresh, whole, food ideas.
I’ll be back tomorrow with how the first day of the fast went! If the coffee detox isn’t too bad I’ll post some recipes like usual, too!
