This warm, salty, savory, and scrumptious recipe is as easy as it is delicious and is loaded with gut healing ingredients to boot. This will be a new staple in your recipe rotation if you are someone that likes yummy food that is healthy. Isn’t that all of us?
Fried rice was one of the first recipes I learned to cook back in my early 20’s when I found out that real food is important for my body and that the best way to get real food is cooking it yourself.
I used to LOVE fried rice when we would hit up our local Chinese food restaurant growing up. It has always felt like comfort food, bringing about happy memories, so when I saw it being cooked on some cooking program and saw how easy it can be, I figured it was right up my ally!
Fast-forward a decade, and my near weekly routine of making it when I want a fast and easy meal on the weekends, I think it’s safe to say I’ve perfected the recipe. I’ve even added a couple of gut healing components that only add to the deliciousness of the meal.
For those that are new to tamari, tamari is a gluten-free soy sauce. You can find it at most grocery stores. If you prefer soy sauce, that’s fine, but either way you go, I highly recommend choosing something organic.
Soy is one of the most pesticide filled crops in the US which is part of the reason there are so many soy allergies nowadays. Not only can conventionally grown soy be bad for people that are allergic or have a food sensitivity to it, it’s also bad when eaten often, as the toxins from the pesticides it’s grown with build up in our system, bioaccumulating in our body. Our gut doesn’t handle the toxins well and too much of this toxin exposure can lead to leaky gut. Opt for an organic soy sauce or tamari.
