They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and that’s especially true when you’re on a Daniel Fast. Start off with wholesome, plant-based foods and you’ll be well fueled to meet your day.
Steel cut oats or rolled oats are an easy and filling start to the day. You can cook a larger portion overnight in the slow cooker so breakfast is ready to go when you wake up. Top with nuts, seeds, dried or fresh fruit.
2. Fruit with nut butter
Top a fresh apple or banana with 1-2 TBS of peanut, almond, or cashew butter.
It’s easy to get creative with smoothies – blend up your favorite combo of fresh or frozen fruits, vegetables, and coconut water or milk substitute (like almond or coconut milk).
Here’s an example of what you could blend up for breakfast or snack:
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup mixed berries
- 1 small banana
- 1/2 cup chopped cucumber
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 cup loosely packed fresh spinach
4. Quinoa breakfast bowl
Quinoa is a good source of protein among grains and plant-based foods. It tastes great in the morning when served with your favorite milk substitute and topped with fresh fruit and some nuts or seeds.
*Honey and milk not included on Daniel Fast – eliminate or sub milk substitute.
5. Fruit Salad
Chop up your favorite fresh fruits in a variety of colors. Make sure to include some filling options like apples, pears, and berries that have higher fiber and lower (relative) sugar.
