Day Seventy-Five: Feeling Fine

This morning I found myself talking to a friend about my covenant. I had been talking to someone else about how I am sooooo ready to have an egg for breakfast or tilapia for dinner (can’t believe that I just said those things instead of a chocolate cake donut for breakfast and a ribeye steak for dinner) and while I was saying that another friend overheard and asked what I was doing. I briefly explained that for the year I am doing a broad Daniel Fast but for Lent I am doing a fruits, veggies, and nuts only fast. She asked how I was getting my protein and I told her that I eat a lot of avocados and nuts. She then asked a question that, surprisingly enough, no one has asked me during these seventy-five days… “How are you feeling?”

It was an interesting thought… I said, “Ya know, I feel great! I mean, I came off of sugar pretty hard the first few weeks but now I feel… great!”

And I do! This is another side effect that I had not considered. But I haven’t had a headache in weeks (I usually have had three to four a week… which I previously attributed to my TMJ), my heart never races anymore (and that was happening three to four times a week as well), my skin looks really great (I think), I really have noticed an increase in energy (but that could also be because of the change in weather to beautiful Spring weather)!

I can see how Daniel and his friends looked better than all the others after three weeks of fruits, veggies, and nuts!

At the end of the ten days, Daniel and his three friends looked healthier and better nourished than the young men who had been eating the food assigned by the king. Daniel 1:15
