Daniel's Lentil and Brown Rice

This is one of four soups that are marked by their odd names. A woman near our factory asked us to make 4 soups in 2011 that were okay to eat on a Daniel Fast diet. Each of the soups has only whole grains, no sugar, no animal products and nothing artificial

In the year 605 BC, the biblical prophet Daniel and his three friends were among the young Jewish nobility taken into captivity in Babylon. Daniel had committed his life to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, so when offered the King’s food, which had been dedicated to Babylonian gods and not prepared under strict Jewish standards, Daniel refused to eat it. Instead, he asked that he and his Hebrew companions be fed only pulse (food grown from seed) and drink only water. The steward in charge of their care reluctantly agreed to allow this change for ten days then test the health of the four young men. After the ten days, the Hebrew men were found to be in far superior health and intellectual acuteness than the other slaves who ate the King’s food.

The fast is modeled after the prophet’s fasting experiences as recorded in Daniel 1 and Daniel 10, along with typical Jewish fasting principles.

The Daniel-Fast explained:
The Daniel Fast is a partial fast practiced by millions of Christians around the world. It is modeled after the fasting experiences of the prophet Daniel. Daniel asked to be fed only food grown from seed and drink only water. Daniel wrote of another fast in which he ate no leavened bread, drank no wine, and ate no meat. Following these guidelines, the Daniel Fast can be described as a vegan diet with more restrictions. Refer to Daniel 10:2-3
