Today is part four in a series about the Daniel Fast. To begin with the first post, click here. I shared my menu with you yesterday, and for the next few days I will be sharing the accompanying recipes – and even some that are not on the menu. Healthy eating has become a passion of mine, and I am excited to share these with you from a collection of great blogs.
Breakfast Quinoa - For the fast, do not include the maple syrup. This is a nice change up from oatmeal or cold cereal.
Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal – Omit the sugar from this baked goodie. This is perfect to make on the weekend and have on hand throughout the week.
Cinnamon Applesauce - Did you know it is so easy to make your own applesauce? It is so healthy and when made with overripe apples it is very sweet.
Clean Oat-Berry Pancakes - I make a big batch of these and freeze them so I can simply pop them in the toaster while I am getting ready in the morning. They are delicious plain, but can also be smothered in nut butter.
Crockpot Apple Pie Breakfast - Use unsweetened apple juice or almond milk or rice milk. This is convenient because it can cook overnight and be ready in the morning.
Banana Berry Oatmeal - Use plain soy milk (or almond milk or rice milk.)
Poached Pears with Banana “Ice Cream” – Simply omit the honey from this recipe. Choose a very ripe pear to maintain hints of sweetness to this treat.
Pumpkin Cornbread Waffles – These are perfect for making ahead and freezing. Simply pop them in a toaster oven while you are getting ready in the morning, and you have a perfect Daniel Fast breakfast ready to go.
Skinny Pear Crisp - I made a whole pan of this, intending it to be breakfast throughout the week. My husband ate it in one day. At least you know it is man-approved.
Smoothies - here are 18 recipes with some of the most beautiful smoothie photos I have ever seen! (Just eliminate the chocolate and any added sugars.)
