Pecan Energy Bars: Daniel Fast Day 1

January 05, 2015

Our church has decided to corporately go on the Daniel Fast.

If you do not know what the Daniel Fast is, you can check out this website for more details. 

I will say this, the Daniel Fast is a result of these scriptures, Daniel 10: 2-3.  
“At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over."

So, I went in head first thinking I could just DO this.  Well, it takes a bit of preparing to make this work. 

I am the worlds worst about grazing, and nine times out of ten I snack on UN-healthy items. To combat all the temptations to just grab something that is not Daniel Fast {DF} approved, I whipped up some snack items. 

These Pecan Energy Bars are a perfect in between meal snack or grab and go snack. Raising three kids, a husband and endless mounds of laundry- I NEED energy to keep me going. 

These have yet to be cut into bars, but these are pretty good. They will provide all the necessary protein and energy to get things done around the house!!

I plan to make many more items that are easy to just grab and go. 

Doing the Daniel Fast should not be about focusing on the foods, but drawing closer to God. If I prepare ahead a time, I won't need to focus so much on the actual food.

Happy fasting!
