How Can Toasted Black Cumin Wild Rice Make You Feel Great?
Both black cumin (nigella) and wild rice support healthy kappa by keeping blood sugar even and removing excess water from your system. Black cumin is an even stronger diuretic than its more commonly used cousin, brown cumin. It has such a direct effect on the kidneys that it can even help to break up a painful, stubborn kidney stone. Wild rice is high in protein and fiber. Combined with black cumin, which lowers blood sugar, this is an excellent choice for diabetics.
For those of you who feel anxious or stressed, a hearty, protein-rich dish such as Black Cumin Wild Rice will bring you a sensation of grounded stability. Nigella stimulates energy, helping to stave off the fatigue that so often accompanies stress. The high fiber content of wild rice helps keep constipation at bay. If you have constipation due to dryness, make sure to add ghee to your wild rice while cooking.
Black cumin is a little too heating for pitta. Use fennel seeds instead for a delicious, pitta soothing modification to this recipe.
