Book Review: The Daniel Fast Made Delicious by John and Ann Marie Cavazos
John and Ann Marie Cavazos have put together a Daniel Fast book that is full of useful recipes, helpful tips and a 21-day prayer journal in the back.
This colorful paperback cookbook is divided into 2 basic sections: Daniel Fast recipes and Healthy Eating After the Daniel Fast. I especially like that they offer healthy recipes for when you complete the fast to transition back into regular eating. . .and, even better, just to continue to eat healthfully. Even if you aren't planning to do the 21-Day Daniel Fast where you pray and eat like Daniel in the Bible, this book offers a large selection of healthy recipes that are dairy and gluten free. I think many people with food allergies to gluten and dairy would enjoy the book. Recipes include: Daniel's Vegetable Shepherd's Pie, Vegan style Hoppin John, Vegetable Gumbo and Greek Salad, among many others. I found the stir fried vegetable recipe to be very good and the recipe was easy to follow.
I thought this book offered a great selection of recipes. Some were quite easy and others required more work so it would be good for either a beginner cook or a more advanced cook. I found most of the ingredients to be readily available in my area. Many of the recipes also offered ideas for substitutions and tips for making the dish better or finding ingredients. I also liked the spiritual element of this book for when you are doing the Daniel Fast. . .It truly is a blessing to do it and focus on God and the Bible. I'd recommend the book and a Daniel Fast to any Christian.
I received this book at no charge from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.
