Prepare dressing: In a small jar combine olive oil, pomegranate juice, mustard, lemon, sweetener, salt, and pepper. Securely fasten the lid to the jar and shake until well combined. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan bring water to a boil, then add rice. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 35 minutes or until rice becomes al dente. Drain and transfer rice into large bowl.
Heat oil in a medium skillet. Add carrots and onions and sauté for 3-5 minutes, or until the onions become soft. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Add onion mixture to the bowl of rice. Stir in kale and herbs. Drizzle with dressing and toss. Add Nature's Eats Slivered Almonds or Nature's Eats Pistachios, dried fruit and blueberries. Toss once more and serve.
