Healthy Veggie Fried Rice

I have always loved fried rice, but it’s generally not the cleanest food out there. It traditionally consists of white rice , which we know is a processed grain and provides zero nutritional benefits, and it often contains pork which provides unnecessary saturated fat.

My version is the healthier option as it contains brown rice which is a whole grain that provides fiber. It also contains carrots for additional nutritional value, and it’s meat-free and completley vegetarian. The last adjustment I made was using liquid aminos as opposed to soy sauce.

Liquid aminos is a healthier alternative to soy sauce. It is naturally gluten free and contains 16 essential amino acids for the body. It is also free of any preservatives, unlike soy sauce. If you haven’t tried it, I highly suggest that you do!
