Meatless Monday: Fatigue Fighting Forbidden Black Rice Stir Fry


Howdy! Happy Meatless Monday! :) Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend. Mine consisted of a 5k obstacle race through a vineyard (race recap to come later this week) and my first ever 20 miler on Sunday! 

 
Thankfully I survived despite the crazy humidity and scorching temps.  All that running also made me really hungry which lead me to creating this super healthy and satisfying Forbidden Black Fried Rice Recipe! 
 
Black Rice {fatigue fighting, forbidden rice, low histamine, reduced inflammation}
 
 
 
Black rice (also known as purple rice or forbidden rice) is not only exotic looking but is high in iron and fiber and is also chock-full of vitamins and antioxidants making it a little known superfood.  The color of this rice can be attributed to the anthocyanins it contains which is the same type of antioxidant that gives blueberries and acai berries their distinctive blueish-purple coloring.  In fact, it is said that ten spoonfuls of cooked black rice contains the same amount of antioxidants as fresh blueberries
 
I first made black rice last year after reading about all the health benefits and was inspired to make it again after reading how helpful incorporating it into a low histamine diet when you have histamine intolerance can be since it acts as a “healing food” and helps fight inflammation. 
 
So what better way to replenish after an exhausting long run than some fatigue and inflammation fighting forbidden black rice, right?! Much healthier than  refueling with fries 😉

Since I wanted to keep this low histamine diet friendly, I left out a lot of fun things that you might normally include in an Asian dish (mushrooms, fried egg, soy sauce, sesame oil, etc) but feel free to add/subtract ingredients as they fit your diet and taste preference. 
 
Also note that the list of low histamine approved foods varies (seriously, I haven’t found two alike yet) but the most important part of this recipe is the gorgeous purpled hued fatigue and inflammation fighting black rice.
