Welcome to the Daniel Plan with Well Within.
I have taught this course several times at different churches and am excited to try doing it in this forum. The source book for this material is “The Daniel Plan” by Rick Warren, Daniel Amen M.D. and Mark Hyman M.D..
My goal is to participate in the program with you and give some tips and insights along the way. I encourage all who participate to get the book as we will be using it extensively and the material is more in depth than I can relay.
Let’s start with a foundational principle regarding food, I quote from the book:
So there it is, principle number one: Eat food the way God made it!!!!
I want to introduce the concept of the Daniel Plan plate. If you divide your plate into four quadrants, one quadrant would be protein, ideally eggs or fish or lean meat. One quadrant would be a complex starch, such as brown rice or sweet potato or peas. The other two quadrants would be vegetables such as spinach, zucchini, onions, green beans, mushrooms, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, salad etc.
More tomorrow, good luck and let me know what you think and suggest any improvements.
