Baha'i Fast 2012 - Day 1

Glory be to Thee, O Lord my God! These are the days whereon Thou hast bidden all men to observe the fast, that through it they may purify their souls and rid themselves of all attachment to anyone but Thee.
~ Bahá’u’lláh

Today is day 1 of the 19-day Baha'i fast. For the next few weeks no food/water when the sun is up. My husband and I had a lovely pre-sunrise breakfast, nourishing food and prayers

Breakfast Menu
  • Tofurky's vegan Kielbasa sausage (tastes good with mustard & ketchup)
  • Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Golden Flax Cereal (really love this cereal, especially the way it absorbs milk) 
  • Sunsational Sunflower Milk (I have been on a "try every nondairy milk"mission. Sunflower milk is alright, number #4 on my list. In order I prefer: Almond, Soy, Flax, Sunflower. Next shopping trip I plan to try Hazelnut.)
  • Licorice tea - Licorice helps the body retain water which can be good during the fast. However, it also can raise your blood pressure and cause hypertension so moderate your use.
  • Tangerine Juice
  • Water

  1. Great picture. I'm a vegetarian and am broadening my taste palette. I too enjoy that brand products. Looks good. Cant wait until tomorrow morning. Enjoy the fast...
