Low Histamine Ginger, Lychee & Coconut Black Rice Pudding


Happy first Meatless Monday of March 2016! I don’t know about you but I am happy that February is over.  For some reason February is just such a yucky month for me.  It’s always cold.  It’s always dreary and it always seems to bring a bunch of unpredictable yucky weather.  

March, on the other hand, is a bit more promising.  Despite the lion or lamb entrance, it brings spring.  It’s a month of renewal and of promise for warmer weather.  There is a sense of newness, of revival and almost healing from the harshness of winter that comes along with the new season.  

With that in mind and all the weariness that winter can bring, I thought that sharing a fatigue fighting black rice recipe was appropriate for today.

I actually mentioned the energy benefits in my 5 Fatigue Fighting Foods post for Foodie Friday just recently.  Not only does it fight fatigue but it’s anti-inflammatory and is also low in histamine which is a diet that I have been trying to adhere to ever since discovering that I am histamine intolerant.  

The hard part about the low histamine diet is that it affects everyone differently.  Some people react more severely to certain foods than others which is why you will find that the “low histamine” food lists vary from reference to reference.  

It is also why I have refrained from sharing too many “low histamine” recipes.  The last 6 months have been a trial and error process for me and finding out what causes reactions has been quite the chore.  Reading through lists and the sparse amount of information that is available is incredibly confusing so I’ve been careful as to what I share and label as being low in histamine.

That being said, I decided to share this recipe today as I recently have had a lot of new readers to my site who have shared that they too are histamine intolerant so I figured it couldn’t hurt.  

This Ginger, Lychee and Coconut Black Rice Pudding is not only low in histamine (according to the reference I’ve checked) but also is a healing food since it offers both anti-inflammatory and immune boosting benefits. 

It’s also incredibly filling since it’s a great source of fiber and pretty easy to whip up too especially if you prepare the rice beforehand! :)
