Where to shop for groceries during the Daniel Fast:
Whole Foods: Wide variety of organic produce and ingredients but some items are a little expensive. Whole Foods does have lots of ready-to-go VEGAN foods that are really tasty such as tabouli, hummus, salads and grains, soups, stews, and more.
Sprouts and Mother’s Market: Similar to Whole Foods and a little expensive but they have a huge variety of wholegrain products like quinoa pasta and whole grain gnocchi, yum! It’s also a great place to buy fresh organic produce, grains, and spices. Try a little herbes de provence on your veggies and you’ll take your dish to a whole new dimension. Mother’s Market has some take-out options that could be Daniel Fast friendly.
Trader Joe’s: one of the cheapest places to buy certain items like organic soy, almond, or rice milk (I’m allergic to dairy so I know this for sure =)), vegetable stock, oils, and bread. They have some fairly priced organic vegetables that are not always fresh so Wholefoods or your local grocery store may be better choices for organic produce if you’re looking for more variety. Also, check out your local farmer’s market.
Make sure to check your local super market and other wholesale stores like Costco. Organic items are more widely available then 10 years ago when we started doing the Daniel Fast.
