What’s The Daniel Diet

Have you heard of the Daniel Diet? It is based on the book of Daniel on the bible, which is often credited as the ancient foundation for a plant-based diet. On Chapter 10, the book describes the vegan fast the Prophet Daniel followed: “I ate no delicacies, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.”

In the book, after those 21 days, Daniel appeared healthier.

So What Is The Daniel Diet?

The plan is a plant-based program inclusive of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, and healthy oils. No caffeine, alcohol, additives, or preservatives are allowed. Usually, participants partake in the plan for a period of 21 days, often as part of a religiously motivated fasting period.

In 2010 researchers at the Univ of Memphis studied the diet and found that:

  • Fights inflammation
  • High in antioxidants
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Protects against diabetes
  • Fights obesity

And even if you consume small amounts of dairy or flesh (perhaps as a condiment or in truly small amounts), they diet seems to provide the same benefits.

I love the idea of giving your body a respite from processed foods, chemicals and foods that produce an inflammatory response. And it’s a great reminder that a plant-based diet is not a fad diet, it’s been around since biblical times!

So get curious, add more plants to your plate and let me know how you feel! And let me know in the comments below!
