I doubt the fish food has broken down and produced enough ammonia to register on the test, or to feed bacteria. I would add a few hardy fish to get your cycle going. Keep dosing Stability until your ammonia and nitrite get back to zero after the initial increase. Also add Prime every day to detoxify the ammonia/nitrite. Your tests will still show readings, and it won't interrupt your bacteria growth, but it will keep the fish safe. I would also add StressGuard every day for the fish. The whole process should take a few weeks. Keep up with water changes, especially with high ammonia/nitrite levels.
If you fertilize or use CO2 for your plants, keep that schedule going during the cycling. Just monitor all your parameters every day so you don't overdose NO3.
