Menu Monday 10 OCT 11 – Daniel Fast Week 1

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of October 10th. Last Wednesday night at church, our pastor called for us to begin a 40-day fast. Gregg and I prayed about it and decided that we would do a Daniel Fast. For the next few weeks, you will see a “vegan extreme” diet. We are consuming only fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and drinking only water – no sugars, honey, syrups, nor leavened bread. Kaylee is observing her own form of this fast and will be abstaining from the sugars and the meat – she will be consuming dairy, however. The boys will be eating our meals with us, but will have some meat and will have dairy.

For lunches, we will be eating hummus with fresh vegetables, avocado and salsa in Ezekiell 4:9 tortillas (the only tortillas I could find with nothing in them but grains), salads, and unsweetened peanut butter with tortillas.

I pray that by sharing our journey with you, you will receiving a blessing from it.

Tasty Veggie Wraps

When I did the Daniel Fast last year, I added an extra restriction to myself in that I wouldn’t eat anything with leavening in it. Consequently, I lived on veggie wraps for lunches. They were so filling, and the avocados helped fill me up.

Zucchini Slaw

Posted by Hallee on Jul 13, 2011 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, Leviticus, Recipes, Salads, sides

This colorful salad can be a nice change of pace from the traditional Coastal Cole Slaw type salad. You can use zucchini or yellow squash. It is perfect for the summer picnic, because there is no mayonnaise in it.

Greek Stuffed Vegetables with Rice (Yemista me Ryzi)

This is an amazing recipe for making something new and different with all of that fresh produce coming out of the garden. You are getting such a wide variety of fresh vegetables, all kinds of good for your body vitamins and minerals, and is something different from the standard sauteing that I tend to do as a default.

Greek Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms with Rice (Kolokythanthoi Yemistoi me Ryzi)

Squash blossoms make a delightful appetizer, and they are often stuffed with mixtures similar to fillings used in stuffed leaves and vegetables. This vegetarian version calls for a mixture of rice, tomatoes, and herbs, and is served at room temperature.

Herb-Roasted Potato Wedges

Posted by Hallee on Jun 25, 2011 in Christian Faith, Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides, Snacks

This recipe is so easy to make, and is such a beautiful side dish to almost any sandwich. We love this kind of side for our game night dinners when we tend to go with Turkey Burgers or Root Beer Barbecued Beef Sandwiches.

Indian Flat Bread (Chapati)

Posted by Hallee on May 1, 2011 in Breads, Christian Faith, Daniel Fast, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

Chapattis are similar to tortillas, but made with no baking powder. They are easy to make and keep well if stored in an air-tight container. Chapattis are common in Southeast Asia and throughout Africa.

Menu Monday 14 MAR 2011

Posted by Hallee on Mar 14, 2011 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of March 14th. This is an unusual week for me. Our church is taking part in a call to 40 days of fasting and prayer. I’ve decided to do a Daniel Fast throughout the 40-days, and that begins on Wednesday. Gregg’s food options in Afghanistan aren’t great, so he will maintain his weekly day of a full fast. Kaylee is going to be fasting from refined sugar. Scott and Johnathan will not be fasting.

On top of that, I have a Kentucky Romance Writers Workshop this weekend that will involve eating dinner out three times, and the children eating elsewhere.

Ash Wednesday & the Beginning of Lent

Posted by Hallee on Mar 9, 2011 in Christian Faith, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, holiness, inspiration, Life

Ash Wednesday comes from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful as a sign of repentance. Traditionally, the ashes used are gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year’s Palm Sunday are burned and mixed with oil. In the Roman Catholic Church, Ash Wednesday is observed by fasting, abstinence from meat, and repentance. It is a day for contemplating one’s transgressions. Ash Wednesday is also the first day of Lent.

Creamy Potato Soup

Posted by Hallee on Feb 25, 2011 in diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Soups

Potato soup is one of my favorite dishes. I often encounter it with ham in it, which is weird to me (even before I quit eating pork). The way my mom makes it is meat-free and very very simple. The flavor combination of the cream and the celery is really what makes it taste so good to me. I’ve even been known to thrown in some celery seed for added flavor. This soup is filling, hearty, and goes wonderfully with Whole Wheat Crusty Cheese Bread.
