Once you’ve been on the Daniel Fast for about a week, your taste buds come to life because they’re not being dulled by additives, preservatives, extra sodium, and just plain junk food. One particular difference that most people notice right away is the sweetness of fruit. Because you aren’t consuming any added sugars, eating fruit becomes a whole new experience. You can fully appreciate these wonderful foods God gave us because now you can taste them! I hope that the healthy eating habits you are developing right now will continue even after your fast is completed.
