Atrial Fibrillation Approved Grocery Haul for October 22, 2017!

Hello and welcome everyone to another episode of Cooking with Fey!

Today I thought I would share with you a grocery haul that is perfect for those of us with Atrial Fibrillation. When shopping for groceries with Atrial Fibrillation, try to stick with fresh fruits and vegetables and unprocessed meats. The goal is to eat food in as close to it’s nature state as possible, so try to avoid foods found in boxes or cans.

You’ll also want to try and limit your salt or sugar intake. I’m trying out some powdered peanut butter to add more protein to my diet and ward off those pesky sugar cravings. Salt is another thing to avoid. By reducing your intake of boxed or canned food items you can decrease your salt intake fairly easily and naturally. When cooking, try to cut back on how much salt you would normally use and see how your meal tastes. You might be surprised by how easy it is to reduce your salt content in food without sacrificing flavor.

Leafy greens are a must, as they are a great source of micro-nutrients your body needs. Carrots are an amazing addition to your diet for their vitamin content as well, so try roasting or steaming them to add to your lunches or dinners throughout the week.

Meat is a great source of protein to help your body repair and maintain muscle tissue, like your heart. So be sure to get between 40-60 grams of protein each day to help your body performing at its best.

If you have any specific questions please leave them in the comments down below and I would be happy to answer them!

Supercharge Your Diet with Brussel Sprouts!

Hello and welcome everyone to another episode of Cooking with Fey. Today we are going to go back to the basics with a Cooking Basics 101 video for one of my favorite vegetables- the brussel sprout.

P1000584.JPG

Brussel Sprouts seriously don’t get enough love. This rock star vegetable is loaded full of many important nutrients that our bodies need to function at their best. These little nutrient powerhouses are full of:

  • vitamin C
  • vitamin K
  • folate
  • manganese
  • vitamin B6
  • dietary fiber
  • copper
  • vitamin B1
  • potassium
  • phosphorus
  • omega-3 fatty acids
  • protein

Holy cow are these guys great! All of these vitamins and minerals stuffed into one little green ball make them the perfect addition to your diet. This is especially true for those of us suffering from heart conditions. We need to eat as healthy as possible to reduce the strain poor eating can put on our heart, so the next time you are at the grocery store be sure to stock up on brussel sprouts.

P1000586.JPG

To make this recipe yourself, all you will need are:

  • 1 Lb of brussel sprouts
  • 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Simply cut your sprouts in half, dizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Then you are ready to enjoy this simple side dish.

Vegan and Gluten Free 5 Ingredient Protein Breakfast Balls

Hello and welcome everyone to another episode of Cooking with Fey!

Today I will show you how to make some delicious and easy high protein breakfast balls. This tasty breakfast is high in both protein and healthy fats, while being vegan and gluten free. Foods such as this are great for those of us with heart conditions, and this recipe is low enough in sugar for diabetics to enjoy.

P1000534.JPG

Those of us with heart conditions can benefit from the healthy fats in this recipe because these fats may help lower our blood cholesterol. Having high cholesterol is bad for many reasons, but one of the main ones is that high cholesterol can cause a buildup of plaque in your arteries- which could lead to nasty conditions like heart attacks or stroke. To prevent this, make sure your diet is full of monounsaturated fats instead of the harmful saturated and trans fats. Remember it this way, fats from plants or nuts are generally good for you, while fats from animals or chemically processed things from a lab are worse for your heart.

P1000540.JPG

Protein is great to help muscles (like your heart) heal and repair. So be sure you are getting enough of this vital macro-nutrient in your diet. If you have questions about how much protein you should be eating in a day, just message me and I would be more than happy to help.

Additionally, this recipe is low enough in sugar to be a good choice for diabetics as well.

P1000545.JPG

To make this recipe yourself at home, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup vegan protein powder
  • 1/2 cup nut butter
  • 2 Tbsp honey (or maple syrup or agave)
  • 2 Tbsp flaked or shredded coconut (feel free to toast the coconut if you’d like)
  • 2 Tbsp Hemp hearts or diced nuts

If you’d like to make this recipe into balls like I did, simply mix these ingredients together and shape the mixture into balls with your hands. These yummy treats will keep in an air tight container in the refrigerator all week for a delicious breakfast on the go.

Grocery Haul for the Week of September 17th, 2017

Hello and welcome everyone to another grocery haul video!

I was pretty darn hungry when I got out of the gym today, so I dropped by the store and picked up some yummy things to make for dinner tonight. Upon filming this video I realized that most of the items I purchased are carb heavy foods, so I had a good chuckle while making this video for you. Luckily, I have plenty of vegetables in the fridge to mix with this odd assortment.

Vegan Rice Pudding with Only Four (4) Ingredients

Hello and welcome everyone to another edition of Cooking with Fey!

Today I wanted to show you all how to add a healthy twist to one of my favorite comfort foods- rice pudding. This version is vegan friendly and uses only four ingredients, so it is ridiculously quick and easy to make.

P1000499.JPG

For this recipe you will need:

  • 1 & 1/2 cups of coconut milk
  • 1 & 1/2 cups of leftover cooked rice
  • 1 Tbsp. of cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. of honey (agave or maple syrup can be used instead)

P1000500.JPG

Some optional ingredients are:

  • 1 tsp. of vanilla
  • 1-2 star anise pods
  • 2-3 Tbsp. of coconut flakes

P1000502.JPG

To make this recipe:

  1. Place all ingredients in a pot and bring to a simmer.
  2. Simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Enjoy!

P1000505.JPG

This recipe is really that easy to make. Homemade rice pudding can be a great alternative to sweet treats such as Nutty Bars, ice cream, or candy. Depending on how you make it, rice pudding has less calories and fat than dairy-based sweet treats, and rice pudding contains around 4 grams of protein per 1/2 cup serving. Beat that Nutty Bars!
