In memory of
What is Daniel's Challenge?
In Babylon, Daniel and his friends requested a diet of pulse and water rather than "the King's meat." After 10 days the king found them healthier and stronger. After three years he found them 10 times better in wisdom than the most learned in the kingdom. (Read Daniel 1)
...5 And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king's meat, and the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king.
6 Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:
...8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.
9 Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs.
10 And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort? then shall ye make me endanger my head to the king.
11 Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the price of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,
12 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.
13 Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king's meat: and as thou seest, deal with thy servants.
14 So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days.
15 And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in the flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king's meat.
16 Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat, and the wine that they should drink; and gave them pulse.
17 As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.
18 Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar.
19 And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king.
20 And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.
So what would be Daniel's challenge to us? Eat pulse for 10 days and see if our countenances will be fairer and our health better. According to the Bible, pulse consists of foods made of seeds and grains. See The 26 compelling reasons to eat Pulse for the possible ingredients of pulse.
Once, I tried to make my own pulse. I'm sure it's not impossible for a fabulous cook to do, which I'm not, but it's really expensive to try to buy every ingredient and then the question is; How much do you put of each ingredient into the bowl and what needs to be cooked, for how long. It didn't taste bad, it just tasted "weird" to me, and the grains weren't done right and sometimes were too crunchy. In the end, I took it out to the garden and dumped it. The birds ended up with the "fairer contenances" and wisdom... to stay near my house for all the leftovers in the garden.
So I searched for a company that sold pulse and found one called Brain Garden. Unfortunately, they went out of business a couple of years later. Now what? The search was on again. I asked friends to see if another company might be selling pulse and did a search of google and I finally found the The Whole Food Farmacy.
The Whole Food Farmacy can help you meet Daniel's Challenge so that in all matters of wisdom and understanding" you will be found to be ...ten times better in countenances and appear fairer and fatter in the flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king's (stuff you find in the supermarket) meat.

I recommend the raspberry pulse, and the different dry pulses. Pulse is a good, healthy, snack food to carry around in your purse so you are not tempted to eat junk food or go out to eat at the local greasy spoon. I wish you well if you decide to take the challenge.
