Cooking with Mrs. Canon

July 4, 2018

How I got started

 

I come from a family of food lovers. Every family event or get together is based on food. What are we going to et when are we going to eat and how much will we consume... yup lol! When I got into competing and the fitness industry my whole world changed when it came to food. I had no clue how many calories I as taking in on a daily basis and when I was giving a meal plan to follow I was blown away with what that entailed. From giving up salad dressings to eating less bread & pasta to no sauces on my chicken dinners ... wow big change. I started to realize how much so called crap I was putting my body before things I had never thought were bad for me. Getting onto a healthy meal plan was a big game changer for me, i felt better I had more energy all of the above feeling amazing! But... I still missed some of the yummy flavors and tasty so called not good for me things. My late night cravings were the worst all I craved was sweets so... this is how Mrs. Cannons Kitchen started . I began playing around with favorites like carrot cakes and cookies and putting a healthy spin onto them. Like using oatmeal and protein powder as a binder instead of flour or using coconut oil and apple sauce instead of butter. Over the next few years I went bananas creating anything I could and finally in 2015 launching my app Mrs.Cannons Kitchen where I could load all of my recipes. So my motto is you can have your cake and eat it too!

  1. With electric mixer blend cream cheese and salted caramel Quattro.

  3. Place in fridge for 10 -15mins or until ready for cupcakes to be iced
