Daniels Diet - Getting Prepared (shopping list)

Sunday Night - Preperation before starting Daniels Diet.

I am excited - and mentally prepared - so i trust you are too.
Daniel 1v 8 (NASB) ' but Daniel made up his mind that he would not defile himself with the Kings choice of food or with wine.."

I have just got back from shopping - in preparation for tomorrow ( actually i am starting tonight)
Here are some shopping tips:

  1. I buy already prepared salads e.g - pk of the following; baby spinach + mixed lettuce + Asian salad (stir fry ) mix + sprouts.
  2. Vegetables; sweet potatoe, pumpkin, cellery, red beets (beetroot), carrots, brocolli, beans, spinach, bok choy, ( think green...) etc etc
  3. mixed fruits in season - here in Western Australia - it is summer so Water melon/rock melon, apples, bananas, stone fruit (although these are high GI) so if thinking of weight loss you should not have too many of them and stick to low GI fruits.
  4. Seasonings ( the folowing are extracts from my new book - 'Daniels Diet Recipe Guide')
    Celtic sea salt
    Crushed Garlic
    Crushed ginger
    Green curry paste
    Miso (Kome or Genmal)
    Organic Tamari Soy Sauce (all natural, all purpose, wheat free soy
    Organic Herb Seasoning – e.g. Vogel “Herbamare”
    Vegetable Stock
    Soup Stock – no MSG, additive free stock powder (Vogel vegetable)
    Massel veggie stock
  5. If you need help sourcing anything– go to your nearest health store, they will give you assistance.
  6. Dried herbs and spices
    Bay leaves
    Cayenne (red) pepper
    Chili powder
    Cinnamon sticks
    Curry powder
    Dried Herbs
    Ground cinnamon
    Ground coriander
    Ground or fresh ginger
    Ground nutmeg
    Mustard Powder
    Peppercorns green and black
    Sesame Seeds
  7. Oils and vinegarsApple Cider Vinegar
    Balsamic Vinegar
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    White Vinegar (to wash your fruit and vegetables)
  8. Nuts (unsalted) and dried fruit
    Almonds (blanched or whole)
    Pine nuts
    Sun-dried tomatoes
  9. Dried fruit often contains sulphur to enhance the color of the dried product.  Seek organic sun-dried fruit, which is also sulphur- free. This is especially important if you experience any respiratory challenges such as asthma.
    No peanuts.
  10. Stir-fry
  11. You’ll find a wonderful selection of frozen stir-fry vegetable mixes in the freezer section of your local supermarket. Make sure you choose the ones with no added sauces. The store will also have bags of prepared raw stir-fry vegetables in the fresh food section, add more colours yourself if needed. Choose fresh foods where possible, however frozen are good as a second choice and for convenience. To avoid plastic contamination, I recommend you mix your own from the loose choices available, i.e. bag up your own.

Feel free to use variety and what is in season in your locality is best, also what you personaly prefer to have. Organic is best but not vital, just do the best you can, its all good.

All the best and talk to you tomorrow


  1. just want to say thanks heaps for your encouragement and support.
    i'm highly motivated to do the daniel diet, particularly because i know that
    you're travelling the same 10 day journey with me; with all of us. it
    makes such a difference to me because you're more then talking your talk,
    you're walking it as well. i've done my shopping as well and
    can't wait for tomorrow morning to arrive to get it all underway. i know
    that God will use these coming days to further the emotional healing journey
    he has had me on since i became a christian in 2003. i'm looking forward to
    that above all else and interwoven with that is the obvious spiritual growth
    that will also take place. I did my first preaching gig at our church
    today, spoke on grace and i know that God only has good in mind for me and
    His grace will take me to amazing places (inward) over these 10 days and
    beyond. i feel this is such an opportunity to let go of the past and become
    the 'real' person He destined me to be. bring it on! i'm ready. praise
    Him. and bless you. : )

    thanks again and enjoy life to the full. i thank God for your heart in
    wanting to help people be healthy, and happy. amen.

    cheers for now
