Menu Monday 11 OCT 2010 – Daniel Fast Week 3

This is week 3 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. After a really rough first week, fast is going great for me, as I explained in my update about it here. Although, I’ll admit to looking forward to the end of the fast.

Daniel Fast Update

The first week was HARD. I was hungry all the time, and when I ate, it was absolutely unsatisfying. I longed to feel the way a thick cheeseburger on a whole wheat bun felt in my mouth, for the flavors to mingle all sloppily together, to feel that full feeling washed down with a glass of unsweetened tea. Beans and salads and apples just didn’t cut it. I dreamed of eating big platters of Family Favorite Steak & Gravy. I had a headache almost daily. And baking dark chocolate chip cookies for Kaylee’s school trip was almost my undoing. I could not fathom two more days of it, much less two more weeks.

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.

Tantalizing Tomato & Onion Tart

I’ll admit that I have not yet made this dish. However, it sounds fantastic and it is more of a “when I add it to the menu” kind of thing rather than an “if I add it to the menu.” This would be an amazing brunch or lunch dish, a perfect potluck change from the normal pot of country beans, or the base for a vegetarian dinner. It is almost limitless as a dish. I cannot wait to try 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.
