In Chinese medicine black foods are good for strengthening the kidneys which will give you endurance and longevity. Black foods are rich in minerals to build mineral rich blood so you can be healthy (and calm). Some great black/mineral rich foods to eat are: black beans, black sesame seeds, black rice, seaweeds, chlorella and spirulina. I love this breakfast porridge because I feel more focused and calm after eating this. And I am always looking for alternative breakfast ideas considering I rarely can do eggs and I don’t eat wheat or dairy. It is kind of difficult to find things that I want to eat and my kids will eat also. They like alot of variety while I could eat the same thing for days on end.

Rooibos black rice breakfast porridge

2 cups black rice

1/4 cup black sesame seeds

5 red dates(deseeded)

1-2 tablespoons carob powder

2 rooibos tea bags

handful of raisins or dried cranberries

handful of pecans

4 packets of stevia or 2 tablespoons honey/maple

* Cook the rice as directed on the package and add the 2 rooibos teabags. I like to make it extra watery so may want to cook with more water if you want it more soupy. Or just add more water after it has cooked.

* While  rice is cooking you can add the other ingredients. Or if you like more crunchy and chewy texture you can add the nuts and dried fruits just before eating.

* I add some nut or coconut milk on top and sprinkle with some cinnamon.

* Serves 2-3 people

  1. This does sound so calming. What a great way to start the day. I must pick up some black rice and give this a try. Love how you flavor the bowl with the rooibos!

  2. Can this be made raw?
