Healthy Soup Recipe by New Nostalgia

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Here it is the last day of the month and I haven’t posted a Healthy Soup recipe yet for June.  Honestly I’ve been traveling quite a bit with my husband this summer which has us eating out more and making less dinners.  Also, I’m not much of a “chilled soup” person, so I don’t make a lot of soup during the summer.  Still a healthy soup recipe is needed, so I took to the pages and pages of recipes on my awesome and ever-talented friend and blogger mentor- Amy of New Nostalgia. I found a post of her’s for this super easy and healthy black bean soup recipe that she loves from her favorite cookbook, The Happy Herbivore.

kalefarrosoup.blog  300x230 Kale, Butternut Squash and Farro Soup: May Healthy Soup Recipe

I couldn’t resist buying a fresh bunch of kale when I happened upon a farmer’s market yesterday while  meeting a friend near downtown Sacramento.

Yesterday  I also happened upon TasteFood  blog by Lynda Balslev who is  an award-winning food writer and recipe developer based in the San Francisco Bay area. 

Her recipe for Kale and Farro soup caught my eye.

So I’m using her recipe for my Healthy May Soup Recipe.

I’ve never heard of farro before and was delighted to find out it’s a high protein grain, rich in fiber and iron.  Now that I’ve tasted it and cooked with it, I believe it could become a staple in my plant and whole food based-food-eating -kitchen.  I found the texture and flavor similar to a small whole grain pasta noodle.

Thanks to a reader of my Facebook I Choose Hope page, I was told I could find farro at Trader Joe’s.

Sure enough it was there  packaged precooked, which turned out to be quite convenient, since farro needs to be soaked like a bean prior to cooking. 

This precooked farro went straight from bag to soup pot.

Why is my Vitamin D Level So Low And Why I Care-

Yes I’m talking about Vitamin D again.

For several days last week I wasn’t feeling like myself- at all.

I wasn’t feeling like my “almost- a-year post- breast -cancer –treatment” self.  Instead I was feeling like my “I’m going through chemo self”.  It’s a disconcerting feeling to have – the reminder of what that was like- the fatigue, the dizzy-heavy head, the nasty“BLAHS”.

Well it prompted me to have my blood work done, which I was over do for anyway.  My blood counts came back right away with good news -  no anemia, no low white blood counts, liver and kidney function good.  By now I’m feeling so much better that I would have been very surprised to hear that my blood counts were off.

Then today my oncologist called with the other two bloods test results.  The tumor marker test showed no elevation.  Good news, however, my doctor admits this marker can be very tricky and unreliable with breast cancer (confirmed by the fact my marker was not elevated when my right underarm lymph system was full of cancer in August of 2011).  Still this news is of comfort.

The one concerning result though was my low Vitamin D level.  It is only 29., with the “normal” level being 30-60. 

According to a report in Naturalnews.com, this conventional normal  range  is actually insufficient for breast cancer protection, according to holistic MDs, chiropractors, naturopaths, and independent nutritionists.

1. Get  Your Annual Mammograms – Do monthly self breast exams and get a mammogram every year beginning at age 40 or at age 30 if you have a strong family history.  If you or someone you know in the greater Sacramento area needs assistance obtaining a mammogram contact Albie Aware at 916-927-1592.

2. Maintain a Healthy Weight – Overweight women – defined as having a BMI (body mass index) over 25 — have a higher risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer compared to women who maintain a healthy weight, especially after menopause. Being overweight also can increase the risk of the breast cancer coming back (recurrence).

3. Exercise Regularly- Research shows moderate daily exercise (walking briskly for 3-5 hours per week) reduces breast cancer risk by 15 to 25 percent.

As I was preparing to share breast health and healthy eating information to a Mom’s in Motion group this last Saturday morning, I thought I would share the same information here on my blog.

I’m often asked if I have changed my diet since being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. The answer of course is “Yes” and since I’m such a wordy and open person, I can’t just stop with a simple “Yes”.  I want to share what I’m learning about healthy nutrition, food and supplements.

I find that people are very interested in what kind of “diet” I’m eating. When I say that I have given up eating red meat and concentrate of plant based eating it is easy to assume I am a vegetarian or vegan.  I’m not though.

For me it’s not so much about what I don’t eat as it is about what I DO eat.  I am strategic about what I put in my body.

There are amazing disease fighting, cell generating, and cancer fighting foods God has put on this earth for us to eat.   Those are the foods I feast on.  These days such foods are referred to as “Superfoods.”

So what’s my diet?  I choose Superfoods.
