Guest Blog Post: Wellness with J Will
There are a variety of diets and fasts that are trendy at the moment but there are a select few that are both healthy and impactful. One of my favorites is the Daniel Fast—It is a spiritually motivated diet based on the Bible story found in Daniel, Chapter 10, Versus 2-3. During his fast, Daniel ate only fruits, nuts, seeds, vegetables and legumes for 21 days.
Allowed: Almonds, sunflower seeds, lentils, quinoa, brown rice, split peas, whole grains and salads (for dressing, use olive oil with lemon juice)
Not Allowed: Sugar and sweeteners, alcohol, meat and animal products, caffeine, processed foods, leavened bread and baked goods
As a challenge, try to adhere to the details for 21 days. Moving forward, use this challenge to elevate towards a lifestyle of conscious eating. Personally, I use Daniel’s fast as a guideline and have modified it to include select kosher fish.
Happy Healthy Eating!
