WHAT IS A DANIEL FAST?
A Daniel fast is a specific fast during which you would refrain from many of the rich foods you might enjoy throughout the year and simplify your diet. It is important to remember that the intent of any fast is to deny yourself something that you would normally do in order to focus more specifically on the Lord and prayer. In considering a dietary fast such as a “Daniel” fast, it is best for each believer to prayerfully determine what things they will eat or not eat. The Bible does not give us details but rather says Daniel refrained from the King’s rich food, and ate vegetables and water. It's not about what we're turning away from, it's about who we're turning to. If you're not comfortable fasting foods, why not consider social media, television etc. Below we have some food suggestions for your consideration. If you do choose to take part in the Daniel Fast and have medical issues, please check with your doctor first.
