Vegan and Gluten Free Cabbage Soup

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

Today I will share with you my favorite cabbage soup recipe. These last few days it’s been snowing here in the Pacific Northwest, which is unheard of for us so early in the year. So I thought I would make some comfort food that is both heart healthy and tasty to make it through this bizarre weather.

For this recipe you need:

  • 1/2 cabbage, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, chopped
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 1 & 1/2 cups of green beans, chopped
  • 2 cups of mushrooms, sliced in half

Now, just toss everything into a large stock pot with some water and spices and cook for 40-45 minutes. It’s that easy!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cooking with Fey: Homemade Beef Broth

Hello and welcome everyone to another edition of Cooking with Fey! Today we will be making a basic broth that you can use as a stock for cooking or as a broth to drink if you’re sick (like me).

The ingredients can really be mixed and matched to meet your particular tastes and needs, but here are the basics of what I put in my broth:

  • 1/2 pound of beef bones (yes, some chicken bones did manage to sneak their way into the stock as I froze them in the same bag as the beef)
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1/2 of a large yellow onion
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic (garlic and onions are great for removing toxins or other impurities from the body, so I highly recommend these ingredients if you are sick)
  • 1-2 Tbsp of vinegar
  • 7-10 cups of water
  • 1 Tbsp of oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Start off by putting all of the ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Boil the broth for 2 minutes before turning the heat down to a simmer. Simmer for 3-4 hours, checking periodically to make sure the water level is okay. If it is too low, feel free to add more water.

And that’s it! Easy peasy homemade broth.

If you have any questions or comments please leave those down below and I will get to them as soon as possible. Otherwise you can find me on YouTube at Fey Fitness, or on Instagram @Fey_Fitness.

Cheers,

Fey

My Life

I was nominated for The Blogger Recognition Award!

Oh my goodness everyone! Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning and saw this little jewel sitting on my page. At first I was so happy I was utterly speechless- I was just so humbled that all words abandoned me. Then, they all came flooding back at once and I found myself babbling without stop.

This is amazing! Absolutely amazing!

So without further ado, here is information about this award:

The Blogger Recognition Award

screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-1-25-33-am

The Rules:-
1. Write a post to show your award
2. Thank blogger(s) who nominated you & provide a link to their blog

THANK YOU The Purple Almond!
The Purple Almond is a wonderful blog all about how food can help cure disease. Which is something I wholeheartedly believe in! The Purple Almond started her blog in 2015, and had this to say about why she chose such an unusual name for her blog:
“I realize that the name Purple Almond is a bit different, and you may wonder why I chose it. The symbolism of the 2 words together summed up what food means to me. Purple/violet, symbolizes, among other things, healing of mind, body and spirit, higher consciousness and awareness of self. Almonds and Almond trees are sometimes known as ‘the tree of life’ and symbolize light and awakening. So, the name Purple Almond sums up my beliefs nicely, ‘Good, nutritious, whole food brings light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within the body.'”
It’s a wonderful blog that I definitely recommend you check out! And again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I’m just so happy that you thought of me.

How did I my blog start…
My blog was inspired after a four year journey with atrial fibrillation. The first year was the absolute worst- I had been training for my very first marathon when this all started. So, needless to say, my life was completely turned upside down. I went from running 8 miles a day, to wheezing and gasping for breath after walking 60 feet. Running had been my life, and I suddenly found myself with dozens of dietary restrictions and without the activity I loved most in life.

But fret not, in the second year I started trying to reclaim my joy, and began taking a more active interest in my health. The rest, is history!

So I’d like this site to be an outlet for me to share what I’ve learned these past years about living a healthy lifestyle, diet, cooking, and fitness.

The blogger community has been so wonderfully supportive and positive about my young site. I’ve received such great feedback that I constantly feel so blessed to be a part of this community.

Let’s see, my top two tips for bloggers….
Tip #1: Be consistent. Have you ever found an amazing YouTube channel or blog and been excited about each and every new post they publish? Well, your audience feels that way about your blog! Don’t leave people hanging by sporadically publishing posts. Get on a schedule and stick with it. This will also make life easier for you, because then you can start to plan your posts in advance and ideas start popping up as your brain remembers that you are getting closer to your designated blogging day.

Tip #2: Stick with it! With every new blog there is a period where you may find yourself posting all this great content, but no one has discovered you yet. Don’t fret, things will change, but sometimes it just takes time. Just keep doing what you have been- consistently posting great content. People will eventually start discovering how awesome you are and following you. It’s just a process- but don’t worry, I believe in you!
