I'm not overly concerned about some of the other reviewers' opinions about the book not following the Daniel Fast exactly. Like many of these kinds of Christian-based trends (Dare I say fads?), they start out as great concepts but we seem to love to morph them into legalistic cults (Remember "The Prayer of Jabez"?). The Bible is silent on whether or not Daniel ate honey and leavened bread, so pray about your own convictions if scripture isn't specific, and let God lead you. Don't be a Pharisee, i.e. God gave them The Law, and they expanded into thousands of ridiculous man-made mandates. And we know how Jesus felt about THEM!
Here's the thing: I gave the Kindle version 3 stars because it didn't have a table of contents. You have to swipe through the entire book to browse the recipes instead of being able to glance at a table of contents, and then go right to a recipe. That was a show-stopper for me. I returned the Kinder version, and bought the paperback.
This book actually makes the Daniel Fast look doable long term instead of just survivable for a month! Don't view the book as a 30-day survival guide. These recipes, and this lifestyle, will outlast the Daniel Fast fad. I'll probably use it to nudge my already plant-strong diet closer to Daniel's diet.
I found the ingredient to be simple and not something I would need to shop to find in 3 separate counties.
The book really gave insight into what you can eat knowing that Daniel only ate vegetables, fruit and water. The books gives recipes of how to cook different nuts and grains and still stay within the guidelines of the fast and they taste delicious!!!
Although the recipes are great, remember the purpose of the fast it to draw closer to God and and to get so caught up on what is needed to eat.
