10 days! That said, today I am listing foods you Can eat during this Daniel’s fast. smile Note these foods are great for your mind, body, and your spirit year-round. I am praying as was said in the book of Daniel:
Daniel then said to the guard whom the chief official had appointed over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, 12 “Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. 13 Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see.” 14 So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days.15 At the end of the ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food. JUST Think how good you will look and feel after 28 days! To read the full story which includes the foods the King wanted to feed them read: Daniel 1: 1-15.
Foods to Eat:

Ok, there you have your shopping list and some sites to lend a hand when creating your tasty dishes.
As we enter this Fast keep in mind, we were given authority on Earth to take care of ALL God created. That includes yourself. To fulfill our roles, we are to be good stewards with the Blessings given by the Father. For us to be a good steward we must feed not only our bodies good food but, our Minds and Hearts. The Good Food for that portion of the fast is, you guessed it, the GOOD News – The Word of God. Not only are we cleansing the body but, our goal is to “break up the fallow ground of the heart” https://biblehub.com/sermons/auth/pearse/the_garden_of_the_heart.htm
