Well it is Day 21 of the Daniel Fast, and our last hoorah to “Eating Good – Daniel Style!” The whole purpose of this 21-day series was to show that you CAN eat deliciously wonderful dishes while on the “Daniel Diet.” I know for myself, I was able to try new vegetarian dishes that I will definitely be enjoying off the fast. As I was thinking about what I liked the most about this fast as it relates to food and health, it would be the fact that it touched on pretty much ALL the top offending culprits to eating – SUGAR, MEAT, YEAST, DAIRY, CAFFEINE, and GLUTEN ALLERGY if you chose to not consume wheat products. You talk about an all in one shot of a diet – this is definitely a winner, and I can see why it has God’s favor upon it! So as you go about redefining your diet, just keep in mind what this diet has done for YOU! Some have touted more energy, better sleep, better control of their hypertension and diabetes, lessened problems with allergies . . .the list goes on.
So let’s give one last final bow of honor to “Eating Good – Daniel Style!” But keep following us on this blog, because I am sure we have a few other “styles” of dining that we will be exalting as well. Now I get to branch off into some fun topics on food and holistic living on this site that I have been anxiously awaiting to do.
Below is an amazing article about Rick Warren, author of “The Purpose Driven Life,” and how the Daniel diet transformed not only his life, but the members at his church as well. If every church and home adopted this principle, I believe we could stop obesity and its related illnesses in its tracks. Be blessed by it, and see you around on the blog. You’ll find me hanging out around here somewhere 🙂
