In addition to being a physics teacher momma, I am also a clergy wife.
One of the needs I noticed within our community was a desire to learn about how our tradition of fasting is supposed to look in the practical lifestyle of an Orthodox Christian.
The cannons call for a strictly vegan diet during the fasting seasons, which include 40 days before Easter, 40 days before Christmas, 2 weeks in August, every Wednesday and Friday, and a few other special days during the year.
All of the recipes are simple and vegan, with an introduction to Orthodox fasting spirituality. We start our Nativity fast in 10 days, so it’s ordering time!
