Menu Monday 04 OCT 10 – Daniel Fast Week 2

This is week 2 of my 21-Day Daniel Fast. My blog post about that can be found here, but basically, it’s vegan extreme – and I’m throwing in my own personal restriction to unleavened bread only. I had a weak day at day 4. I didn’t break the fast, but I was tempted for some reason, even dreamt of food that night. At this point, I’m in a steady go, not tempted to cheat, not wishing I hadn’t started the fast in the first place (heh).

Observing a ‘Daniel Fast’

In observing the diet, I will eat only vegetables, fruits, and unleavened bread that does not contain any ingredient that is not made directly from a vegetable or fruit. For instance, I am going to make tortillas out of fresh ground flour and coconut oil (instead of shortening or beef tallow). When I make a salad, I’ll flavor it with olive oil (cold pressed) and lemon juice. I will only drink water. I will allow my kids to eat dairy, but I likely will not be preparing meat for them.

Menu Monday 27 SEP 2010 – Week 1 of Daniel Fast

This week, I begin a 21-Day Daniel Fast. My blog post about that can be found here, but basically, it’s vegan extreme – and I’m throwing in my own personal restriction to unleavened bread only. I’m really looking forward to it. I’m going to allow the kids some meat and dairy, so they’re not doing it with me. I’ll go ahead and list all of the meals so that you can see how I’m doing it.

Hummus with Sesame Paste (Hummus bi Tahini)

We keep hummus in our refrigerator all the time. It is a delicious, healthy snack full of protein and just yummy goodness. I dip veggies into it, Homemade Whole Wheat Pita Bread, tortilla chips, bagel chips — whatever we have on hand. I often set it out as a starter for guests to snack on while I finish up dinner. This is a completely vegetarian dish and perfect for a Daniel Fast or Lent.

Very Unordinary Chunky Vegetarian Chili

If you are entertaining mixed palettes, this meal will satisfy all tastes. A from-scratch chili that uses many different vegetables as well as beans and lentils to provide that ‘full’ feeling that chili with meat offers. Add fresh parsley and basil to taste, if desired. The lack of dairy or meat in this chili makes it a perfect meal during a Daniel Fast or Lent.

Sesame Baklava (Baklavas Sousamenios)

Serving this delightful and easy version of baklava – a layered sweet made with thin phyllo sheets – is an old custom on Christmas Eve in Thrace, and other areas of Greece. Made with olive oil, the pastry meets Greek Orthodox Lenten-type fasting guidelines, and it’s a delicious alternative to other versions of baklava, especially for those who avoid nuts.

Amazing Butternut Squash Bisque

I watched a Top Chef one season, and late in the season toward the finals or maybe in the finals, one of the contestants made a butternut squash soup that had the judges wanting to lick their bowls. It seemed odd to me that something that should be as simple as a butternut squash soup, could illicit such a response from a group of people who taste amazing food all the time. It sent me on a quest to find a recipe that good, something that would make me sad the bowl was empty when I was finished. I’ve found that recipe, and I’ve found that secret ingredient that makes it all the better. I hope this bisque is as amazing for you as it was for me.
