30+ Daniel Fast Breakfast & Snacks

It’s no secret that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. But when you’re fasting to spend more time with the Lord, or when you’re doing fasting for Abba to do something different in your life, your options might be more limited.

This Daniel Fast breakfast and snack recipes list will fill your belly full of humble yet delicious and flavorful foods that don’t make you feel guilty at all. So you can focus on your fast, read good Christian books, and deepen your prayer life.

The Daniel fast dishes listed here may not be the type of dishes that Daniel ate on his 21-day fast while waiting for a breakthrough from heaven till the archangel Gabriel appeared to him, (Daniel Chapter 10: 2-3) but they are based on the ingredients that Daniel stuck to.

The Daniel Fast isn’t a new concept, but it is one that is a bit different than other fasts that are currently out there. While it may sound difficult limiting using sugar and sweeteners such as maple syrup, or honey, you’re not limited on the number of fruits or types of fruit that you can eat. This means that you can load up on natural sugars that also have great health benefits, too!

At the same time, veggies with some good natural spices really transform a dish. No wonder Daniel and his peers looked better than the other trainees in the kingdom of Persia when they abstained from meat and drink for that 10-day period in Daniel Chapter 1:5-16.

The great thing about the following Daniel Fast recipes is that they’re great for breakfast or a fun snack. You’ll find a lot of easy salsa recipes, some sweet morning starters, and even some other soon-to-be-snack favorites sprinkled in.

Start off your day strong and sprinkle in some of these delicious snacks. You’re about to treat your tastebuds to a truly delicious journey or trick them rather into feeling full, and you really won’t even feel like you’re “fasting” at all.
