The Daniel Fast

Here I sit. 
In the library of my school. Just waiting for my shift to start in the training room so I can get this show on the road. Come on spring break, you're almost here!!!

I know, I've neglected my little blog recently. 
I feel bad about that I've truly missed it. Time to dust off my keyboard!
Who am I kidding? I've been typing papers till the keys are falling off.

Anyways, I've had a few people ask me to post about this thing that I've been doing. For the past two weeks, I have been on the Daniel Fast, and I have one week left.
If you haven't heard of it, here are the basics:

The Daniel Fast

  •  Dairy
  • Sugar/Sweeteners- Artificial or natural. That means no honey, agave nectar, or stevia. Nothin.
  • White, processed flour. Whole wheat is okay.
  • Meat or seafood of any type. 
  • Deep fired food 
  • Beverages besides water.

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Legumes - Beans, quinoa, lentils etc.
  • Whole Grains- Brown rice, 
  • Nuts and Seeds
  • Quality Oils- olive, peanut, sesame, 
  • Pure Water.
It's based on the diet that Daniel from the bible had to eat while refraining from eating the king's feast.

Before you think I'm crazy, let me just say that this fast has changed my mindset on food and meals quite a bit. I feel so good, I think clearer, and bonus: I've toned up a lot. 
It's my goal to post some of the recipes that I've discovered pretty soon..just as soon as I can make them in lighting good enough to take pictures of it. 
If anyone has any advice on faking natural light, I'm all ears! 
Until then I'll just try to plan dinner time before sunset...
Be Back Soon,
❤ Terra
