Fast­ing peo­ple need to know what foods must be present in their diet so that the body is not stressed by severe food restric­tions. On the table of a fast­ing per­son, there should be food rich in vit­a­mins and microele­ments, which are urgent­ly need­ed by the body dur­ing this peri­od.

In your diet dur­ing fast­ing should be a lot of dif­fer­ent veg­eta­bles. It is espe­cial­ly good to include egg­plants in your diet, which are rich in fiber and B vit­a­mins, as well as bell pep­pers, rich in vit­a­min C. Veg­eta­bles are per­fect­ly digest­ed and sat­u­rate the body with use­ful ele­ments in com­bi­na­tion with cere­als.


Beans, lentils and peas com­pen­sate the body for the lack of ani­mal pro­teins and are an excel­lent con­duc­tor of iron in the body. It is not worth get­ting car­ried away with legumes only for peo­ple with gas­troin­testi­nal dis­eases — for exam­ple, gas­tri­tis and pep­tic ulcer.


This prod­uct can per­fect­ly replace meat: the pro­teins con­tained in mush­rooms per­fect­ly fill the body’s need for meat. You should include mush­room dish­es in your diet no more than twice a week, because. this prod­uct is hard to digest.


Cere­al food must be present on the table dur­ing fast­ing. Eat mues­li and cere­als cooked in water (prefer­ably whole grains). To diver­si­fy the taste and range of cere­al dish­es, you can sup­ple­ment them with nuts, dried apri­cots, raisins and fresh fruits. Include whole­meal bread in your lenten menu.

Dried fruits

These foods are a rich source of min­er­als and vit­a­mins. In addi­tion to the fact that dried apri­cots, raisins, prunes, figs and dates can act as an inde­pen­dent dessert, dried fruits are also a won­der­ful addi­tion to cere­als, mues­li or pies.


Nuts con­tain a large num­ber of use­ful trace ele­ments. To main­tain vital activ­i­ty, the body needs 30 g of nuts per day. It is also good to add almond milk as an addi­tive to cere­als.


Nat­ur­al sug­ar will help to fill the body’s needs for sweets and enrich it with many nec­es­sary trace ele­ments. In addi­tion, hon­ey boosts immu­ni­ty, pro­vides the body with ener­gy and serves as a pow­er­ful antiox­i­dant.
