Recipe Notes

  • Bragg’s Liquid Amino’s is an alternative to soy sauce that has no added salt or preservatives. It’s a certified non-GMO (not genetically modified) liquid protein concentrate, derived from healthy soybeans, that contains 16 essential and non-essential amino acids.
  • Soy sauce contains wheat (not whole wheat) and sodium benzoate, which is a preservative. Since the goal of the Daniel Fast is to choose foods that God made instead of man-made, chemically processed foods, technically soy sauce is not allowed. However, some people may choose to modify their fast a bit, and that is totally between you and the Lord. Whatever He is leading you to do, do it. If that means eliminating soy sauce for 21 days, great. If not, that’s great, too.

Comments

  1. Is it okay to use pineapple juice on the Daniel’s Fast? Just wondering! I thought juice wasn’t allowed, but does that just mean for drinking?

    • Yes, you can have unsweetened pineapple juice. Water should be your main beverage on the fast, but you can use pineapple juice in recipes.
