Daniel Fast Day One and I will admit that my wife and I have made some concessions this time. As someone who has had bariatric surgery, I have to ensure that I have a certain amount of protein in my diet everyday, so I will be having a protein shake every morning for my breakfast, and I intend to have at least one protein bar during the day.
Given that, today, Fe and I had pears for breakfast. They filled us up good enough, but that worked only so long. I got gluten-free vegetarian egg rolls by Feel Good Foods for our lunch after church, after purchasing a bunch of organic “Daniel Fast Ready” foods, as I did not prepare ahead of time this year. I bought a bunch of different kinds of alternative milks with no sweetener added, and I will post the differences shortly.
I bought a bunch of organic vegetables to make a vegetarian broth that will be the staple over the next three weeks. For the broth, I sautéed two onions with about two cups of chopped organic carrots in about two tablespoons of coconut oil. I chopped a green and a yellow zucchini, and I added this to the sauté. To this I added four cloves of garlic for about a minute. I then added a pint of halved organic grape tomatoes for about a minute. I adedd two quarts of water and two chopped celery stalks. This will be my base for a few dishes going forward. I will strain it out and store in the fridge.
Tonight, I am making a veggie sauté with rice noodles. I will document the progress with pics, so stay tuned.
