A Day of Daniel Fast

I mentioned this a little while ago in this post, but I'm currently on this meal plan called the "Daniel Fast." I won't lie, there have been a few times where I've cheated, but for the most part this diet isn't really too difficult to follow. Whole grains, fruits, veggies, and water to drink-- it isn't too bad. Although my meals vary from day to day, here's a typical day of meals & snacks on the Daniel Fast.



{Breakfast}
Normally for breakfast you are supposed to eat a bowl of oatmeal or this smoothie, but I've changed this meal up a bit. I need something that will be easy to make & will keep me full for a few hours. 2 eggs & a banana seem to do the trick!

{Snack #1}
This has become one of my favorite things to eat throughout the day. Almonds & cranberries are the perfect combination! I'd never been a huge fan of cranberries until I gave these a try. They are so good.

{Lunch}
I could eat this every single day, and I basically do! Carrots, hummus, and a tomato basil wrap make for one tasty meal.

{Snack #2}
Watermelon is my favorite fruit, so I absolutely can't get enough of it. It is the perfect summer snack!

{Dinner}
The recipe on the meal plan for this salad is 3 cups chopped romaine, 3/4 cup each canned corn & black beans, 1/3 of an avocado, 1/4 cup fresh chunky salsa and lime wedges. I'm not a huge fan of avocado, so I left that out of this one.

I do get hungry at other times throughout the day so if I need something to snack on, I'll have some variation of fruits, nuts, or veggies. I think the most important thing to remember when your following a diet plan like this is that you have to make it your own. If a smoothie isn't cutting it in the morning, substitute it for something that will. Remember too, it's okay to "cheat" here and there too. Don't let a diet keep you from having a nice meal out with your friends!

    1. The diet I'm doing is actually a little different from the one on the site, but it's been pretty easy so far!
