The Daniel Fast
Supporting you on your Daniel Fast.
The Daniel Fast has a very strict set of food requirements which means you’re going to eat a vegan diet with absolutely no artificial or refined ingredients, no preservatives or man-made chemicals and no added sweeteners or sugars. The FitChef Vegetarian/Vegan range is perfect for this. The Daniel Fast is based on the Old Testament experience and it will certainly be worth the effort.
Preparation: Once you start reading food labels you’ll realise that there are very few food options that meet the strict criteria. Most modern foods have a long list of artificial ingredients, so you’re going to have to plan to have enough good food around at all times. FitChef is obsessed with whole-food, without any artificial man-made chemicals, preservatives, additives, no highly refined ingredients and certainly no added sugars. We don't believe anyone else puts in this much effort to give you REAL FOOD that tastes amazing too. Ingredients you will recognise, as close to nature as possible. FitChef food is a perfect fit for the Daniel Diet.
What CAN you eat & drink?
Eat: Vegetables, fruit, seeds, nuts, legumes, beans, lentils, whole grains and quality oils, brown rice, quinoa, oats. PLEASE NOTE: we do provide smoothies as part of these nutrition kits, these are 100% liquidised whole-food (veg and fruit) and don’t contain any concentrated juices… think of the smoothies as the most convenient food snack available.
Drink: Quality filtered water. What CAN’T you eat & drink?
Don’t eat: No meat or animal products. No dairy or eggs, no sweeteners at all (including honey, stevia or artificial sweeteners). No processed ingredients like white rice or white flour, no baked goods, no deep-fried goods, no processed fats (Margarine or high-fat foods).
Don’t Drink: only water is allowed, nothing else (PLEASE NOTE: as mentioned, we do provide liquidised whole-food smoothies which are 100% veg and fruit and not concentrated juices. Smoothies are whole-food super-convenient snacks that will really help on those busy days).
