Cucumber Grapefruit Salad Daniel Fast recipe
Hello blog readers! I have a very simple & delicious recipe to share that works if you’re doing a Daniel fast. You can throw it together in 5 minutes, and it’s great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack. It’s a cucumber grapefruit salad.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 cucumber
- 1 grapefruit
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
- juice of 1/2 lime
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Wash cucumber and slice. Peel grapefruit and separate pieces. Mix all ingredients together. Enjoy!
If you’re rushing out the door, put everything in plastic container, shake and go!
If you make it the night before, the flavors will fuse more into the fruit and cucumbers.
I post these recipes for those doing the Daniel fast — but mainly for those who are afraid to give fasting a try. Fear of not knowing what we’re able to eat can cause us to avoid fasting. If your goal is to grow deeper in relationship with God, fasting is a way that can help you. And there are foods and meals that taste great that you are allowed to have. Read up on spiritual fasting before you start a fast. Prepare your meals, or have a list of recipes ready for each day before you start. That might help you. And, don’t harm your body by not taking in any nutrients. He’s a good Father, and will never require you to starve yourself in a harmful way to be closer to Him.
I pray these recipes help you!
As you move forward fasting to God, I encourage you to meditate on His word daily.
I found a very cool app that reads the bible to you. It’s great to listen to after you read a passage to really meditate on it. I play it in the car too. It’s the Redemption app. There are lots of Redemption Church apps. The one I use is pictured below:
Just click on the Bible tab. It pulls up passages for each day, or you can choose which chapters you want to read or listen to.
I pray for a more intimate relationship with Jesus and His Father for each of us!
Ephesians 3:16-19 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
