I Broke My Daniel Fast A Week Early With Milk Duds

And I don’t recommend that. If I could do it over again, I would.  Choosing a nice, broth-like soup with some whole wheat crackers on the side would have been a more suitable choice.  But, life doesn’t always let you have what you want. I’d just learned that my husband’s father had passed away and I was rushing around the house trying to get things packed up for a week-long trip to Texas with my boys.  The last thing I was thinking about was getting Daniel Fast appropriate snacks for the road. What? I mean, I knew I would have to break the fast early upon learning about his death.  It would be a near impossibility to maintain this spiritual act while we were staying in the homes of our parents as we dealt with the loss of my father-in-law. What’s funny to me about the whole Daniel Fast is that I was certain that I would love the taste of Diet Dr. Pepper when I could have it again.  So I had it again.  But I didn’t enjoy it.  In fact, I was incredibly disappointed in the taste.  Not sure if I will even introduce it to my normal diet again. The Milk Duds?  Well, now that’s a completely different story.

  1. I. Love. you. this story almost made me spill my coffee while giggling. thank you again for my “morning cheer”. you are precious! (and of course, I love milk duds)

  2. Cindy, I broke mine too with coffee. I gave it up for 5 days, that’s all I could handle. It’s ok, “we” offer grace to you over the milk duds, just like we receive it. Thanks for your confessions!


  3. This made me giggle… I don’t know that I could continue a fast through something like that either. And you know, after not drinking my beloved Diet Pepsi or Diet Mtn Dew for a few days, I can’t stomach the taste either… but my love for chocolate never disappears!! 🙂

    I’ve heard a lot about this Daniel Fast, I’m going to have to find some more info on this.

  4. Isn’t it amazing what you find out about your likes and dislikes. I thought that I would die without French Fries when I started to lose weight. It turned out that I missed real honest to goodness CHEESE!!! Another thing that I thought was weird is I am way OK without mayo. I haven’t reintroduced it into my food plans.

  5. I was just thinking of going on the Daniel Fast starting on the 11th thru the 21st. Now I’m not sure if it’s such a great idea. I want to get closer to God so that I can get dicernment , more wisdom and knowledge. To go higher and deeper in Him, but if I break the fast before completing it what does that say about my goals?
