The Daniel Fast

Updated: Dec 31, 2019

I wrote this blog post back in 2014 when I did a week long Daniel fast. As we start a new year, I found this content to be refreshing if you're thinking of starting a fast in 2020.

I'm encountering a new adventure in my life.  I will be doing the Daniel Fast for 1 week starting tomorrow.  Our church is doing a week of Prayer & Fast.

PRAYER:  To connect with God. FAST:  To disconnect with the world.

I chose the Daniel Fast which will includes all vegetables, all fruits, all whole grains, nuts & seeds, legumes, quality oils, and, of course, lots and lots of water.


  • #1 To grow closer to God during this week through prayer.

  • #2 Experiment and try new things (juices and smoothies).

  • #3 Blog daily to track my process and stir up a conversation about it.

Today was prep day.  We heard the message from Pastor Joe this morning, I hand wrote out my list on what my meals would be for the week and then I carefully constructed our grocery list.  We purchased most of the bulk stuff at Costco, and the rest at HEB.  Here is our entire grocery list:

  • Frozen Strawberries

  • 34 Apples

  • Frozen mixed berries

  • 1 zucchini

  • Almonds

  • 1 Cucumber

  • Kale

  • Blueberries

  • 2 Green Apples

  • 1 Avocado

  • 1 Lime

  • Whole Wheat Tortillas

  • 7 Pear

  • Strawberries

  • 6 Oranges

  • Granola

  • 9+ Bananas

  • 15 cups Spinach

  • Green Grapes

  • 10 Celery

  • 5 Lemon

  • 4 Carrots

  • Popcorn (all natural, no added sugars or ingredients)

  • All natural peanut butter

I am all stocked up and ready to go for the week!  It's great to see our fridge totally stuffed with fruits and vegetables.  I also set up a nice "snack station" with fruit that doesn't need to be refrigerated, popcorn and nuts readily available.  This way I don't even need to open our pantry for anything.

If you're going on a fast to start 2020 my prayer is that you seek God first. Let Him guide you and your steps along this transformational experience.
