I can hardly believe that all of this time has passed by since I have been on the Daniel Fast. I have had major computer problems and that is the reason why I have not posted. But I am back now and very excited, energetic and full of zest. I do believe that the fast is working wonders on me and in my life. I am very happy with the clarity that I am receiving and the focus that I have. Plus I only have 23 more days to go. And I will make it. Yaaayy!
Okay. I can’t believe that I didn’t post on yesterday. Well, I guess I posted on Facebook and forgot to post here. The Daniel Fast is going great. I even made it through Superbowl Sunday. I found some Daniel Fast friendly chips called FSTG (Food Should Taste Good) The Multigrain chips have: Stone Ground Corn, High Oleic Sunflower Oil, Safflower Oil, Brown Rice Flour, Flax Seeds, Evaporated Cane Juice, Oat Fiber, Sesame Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Quinoa, Soy Flour and Sea Salt. ALL GOOD! So I was immensely satisfied. I was able to make it through. My Bulgar & Vegetable Medley keeps me pretty satisfied too! So things are going well friends! Keep praying for me!
Okay. So everyone knows that I am fasting in this house. But I don’t think anyone cares. They’re not fasting with me so they’re partaking in everything under the sun. So, my husband cooked and decides he wants to bring the pot all the way from the kitchen to the bedroom so I can see how his food turned out. Great! I am not pissed though because I didn’t cheat again and I am not going to cheat. So, there is not really anything that anyone can do to make me change my mind. I am doing this Daniel Fast and I am going all the way. Go Saints! Tomorrow is Superbowl Sunday and I will cook up a storm…recipes that coincide with the Fast of course. : )
Today has gone really well. No cheating. I even celebrated pizza Friday with my kids. They indulged and I didn’t have any of it. I had more of my delicious soup. Smile. But the fast is working. I asked for clarity, focus, discipline and prosperity and today I recruited 2 people into my business with kits. And that was confirmation for me. Plus my business production is going really well this month. More confirmation that the Daniel Fast and Prayer simply works!
Many people have asked can you have salad dressing on the Daniel Fast. The answer is no! But here is a recipe for you:
Garlic Herb Seasoning
Red Pepper Flakes
Mix ingredients together. The amount depends on how much salad dressing you would like to make. It’s up to you.
I can’t believe that I forgot to post on Day 3. Well Day 4 is going just fine. What I found out on yesterday was that it is quite possible to eat too much even while fasting. I kinda over did it on the soup and fruit on yesterday evening. I didn’t feel so good about myself when I went to bed, which is probably why I didn’t post. But today I decided that I was not going to over do it. Besides, I had a dentist appointment and Gosh! What a mess! I have cavities and I need 2 crowns. Huh? Say what? How in the world did that happen? Can we say too much candy? Not enough healthy food. This Daniel Fast is just in time. I also have to do better with reading my scriptures. That will help me to stay on track and continue to meditate.
Nevertheless, I still like this experience is the best fasting experience I’ve had yet. Plus I do feel more focused and clear ALREADY!!! This is definitely a good thing!!
Well, there are only 38 days left after today. Oouuuwee! This is not easy. The kids asked for McDonalds today and I purchased it for them…but I am happy to report that I didn’t have not one BITE! Not ONE! Oh but the smell drove me crazy, then my boss had a hero with hot pork, OMG!!! I had to walk out of his office today.
Anyway, tonight I made a bean soup. It included all kinds of beans in a tomato base, it is delicious. It will last for days. So, I am excited about that because I don’t have to worry about cooking for a minute. Nevertheless, this Daniel Fast has me seriously thinking of giving up meat totally. I will see how I feel after the 40 days are up and then see how it goes from there.
Now scripture…”Man does not live by bread alone.” That is my new mantra.
