The Daniel Fast is a diet of sorts, where you eat only the kind of things eaten by Daniel from the Bible. Daniel ate no meat, dairy, sugar or leavened bread and drank no alcohol. You’ll find 12 recipes here to help you get started. We usually fast for a week or so, but some do this fast for longer. Cleansing your body of the toxins in many of the foods we avoid on the Daniel Fast is said to have a wonderful effect on your thinking, focusing, and improving your prayer life.
