Mrs.Cannon’s Quarantine Staples

How many days are we into this quarantine for now??? Feels like forever ugh!! But I don’t wanna dampen the the day any more, so I hope this can shed a little light into your next grocery shop.

 

I wanted to share a few staples that I have on my grocery list that I find super budget Friendly and is still high on the nutritional count! This little picture all added up comes to $105 Canadian but I can guarantee you it can get a few good meals out of it!

  • 1 Cup Oatmeal / 1 scoop Quattro protein powder http://www.hardmagnum.com 1/3 cup apple sauce all mixed up is how I start most days (adding a bit of cinnamon to the mix, an extra yummy taste)
  • Once a week I usually cut up a huge Tupperware https://www.starfrit.com/en/lock-lock-easy-match-18-piece-set container of veggies to snack on at any moment (celery, radishes,mushrooms,carrots,cucumber)
  • Too add to my veggies I typically use half my plain greek yogurt and create a veggie dip out of it by simply using a http://www.oh-my-spice.com of my choice to add to it to make a low sodium dip (Pizza flavor is my fav ) big surprise.

 

  • Wraps are a staple in our house usually adding chicken, turkey or some sort of mixed bean medley to them. Mixed Bean wrap  I will mix a can of lentils and black beans along with around 8 tbsp. of sweet chilli sauce along with  a few cut veggies. Heat it up and roll it in a wrap! Delicious !!!

 

  • My CannonBalls http://mrscannonskitchen.com/cannon-balls/  a staple snack in the freezer however we are soo low at the moment due to the virus and production on them has completely stopped because of it 🙁 I promise when all this crap is over you’ll see a brand new awesome mixes!So please stay tuned and bare with me! Also http://www.meridianmeats.com still has a few bags to grab!

 

  • Can tuna,how can you go wrong lol  High in protein and easy! Again add to a wrap or make into a potato tuna salad – 4 cooked potatoes cut up into small pieces, can of tuna drained, 1/3 cup Greek yogurt, 3 tbsp. white wine vinegar(i love white wine vinegar https://bertolli.ca/ its sooo good to flavor with and no cals and no sodium! Sea salt and pepper and done!

No yolks pasta is a fav of mine since well I was a kid.https://www.instagram.com/noyolksnoodles/

 

My mom would always buy it and now I do too. No saturated fats, no cholesterol and low in carbs. I will usually make a turkey pasta with this – 1 pound ground turkey cooked, sea salt and pepper, 5 tbsp. of “everything spice” by my Oh my spice, 1 can of diced tomatoes, one yellow onion diced, diced up green pepper let simmer for 15 minutes or while noodles are boiling. Scoop out one cup noodles pour turkey mix on top and chow down! So easy!

Cute looks for Quarantine…

Cute from Quarantine…

 

Just trying to make the most of what’s going on… I know for everyone right now its a very weird time in the world. A very unsettling time that unfortunately we don’t quite know how the actual out come will be, just keep praying that this will all end sooner than later!  Lets do our part and stay  at home and flaten the curve on this!! A huge massive thank you to all the health care worker out there!! My biggest hugs to you!!!

I  am house bound as most people are right now. Unfortunately not working my day job as a medical esthetician  shut down, my CannonBalls have not been in production (I’ll write another blog on this soon explaining why) And all fitness show that I had posing clients for are currently up in the air or cancelled due to the state of everything. So for the next while I can focus on my baking/ healthy recipes, my blog, updating my site  and everything else that I have been putting off lol! So I guess that’s a good thing right?!!

 

 

When we able to get back to life and go out to restaurants or a night out I know i’ll what i’ll be wearing ! Lets talk about the trends for Spring/Summer 2020

I have read and watched so many fashion blogs and makeup videos and the look for 2020 is the look of an episode of That ’70s Show,” Yep from flared pants , to white eye liner to the good old cardigan sweater, all things 70’s are back yet again!

 

I made my dad send a few cool old shots of my mom back in the day early modelling skills and outfits. Funny I wish she would have just kept all her clothes cause man they are high fashion now ! Lol! Let this be a lesson to you if you have kids keep your clothes!!

Boyfriend jackets are super popular and super cute this season. A easy outfit to piece together too! Again bigger the flare the better! Skinny light colour jeans are a thing of the past however the dark skinny denim is still a go.

 

 

You can’t participate in the ’70s trend without at least a little something suede.  Fringe jackets made their triumphant return to the ready-to-wear scene.

Floral patterns, dresses with open neck lines and fresh face makeup is super on trend. Slip dresses are nothing new, and by now you probably own at least three in various colors, but this spring, they are big in the fashion world.

Just a few of my observations for this spring fashion trends. However to me fashion is what ever you feel like a rock-star in no matter what trend its on or not on!

2020 Where you at?!!!

I still cannot believe that we are a month into 2020 where does time go?

My husband and I are back from our 5 1/2 week holiday to California and definitely it was the best trip we’ve ever had together! I don’t think we’ve laughed that hard in so long and just had a fun time being together and riding our motorcycles

We try and do this every year as we’re both so busy during the year and don’t get a lot of quality time together so when we actually do spend the time,I definitely cherish it.

As always http://www.amiclubwear.comhad me decked out to the nines! I recently just got back from Los Angeles a quick five day trip with Magnum to the LA fitness Expo

It was awesome getting to see the latest and greatest in fitness for 2020 I cannot believe how much the vegan train is very apparent! Everywhere I looked there was vegan protein, protein blend food,burgers donuts you name it

I am definitely not opposed to vegan whatsoever I am actually incorporating more and more meat free meals. I don’t actually eat beef at all,rarely pork and will not touch the lamb to save my life.

I mainly cook us chicken and fish As our protein sources. But who knows that could change too lol

2020 means change for me I am finally finishing my personal training as I’m going to gear Up to be doing more online with my Posing and incorporating my personal training. It’s been years in the making and I’m finally decided that is one of my biggest goals this year. Not only will I have the Posing and Fitness I will also have the Skin side of it as I want to create my own Skin Health 180 transformations.

Not only that, I’ve got some huge opportunities coming up with my Cannonballs! an endeavour I did not think it would take off as it has been I’m sold out of products as it stands right now and I’m in the making of re-branding and sourcing out different options

If you follow me you’ll see you soon what companies are wanting to take it as well as I’ll be building more of the brand online

So 2020 will definitely is ramping up quick

I hope your 2020 is started off with a bang as well! Thank you everyone that follows my journey I truly do appreciate it! Big hugs chat soon Heidi

Goals…go get em before 2019

Set your eyes on the prize

No I know everybody this time of year can  puts things aside and says I’ll wait to the new year till I change, make a goal or make some sort of a lifestyle change... why does it have to wait until 2020? why can’t you start now?

Tips for taking on new tasks and setting goals for yourself.

Number one- Write everything down I literally have an old-school notebook that I carry around pretty much with me everywhere I referred to it and note down every day, of what tasks I might have for the next day or goals I want to achieve

Goal Setting -I have a list of big goals and I have a list of daily goals two different things, with two different timelines.

When sending any kind of goal for yourself remember to give yourself a break, if your goal simply is to be active once a day or whatever it may be, I’m a big believer of slow and steady wins the race before going gung ho and saying” I’m gonna do the gym every single day” then you miss a few days and you’re likely to get down on yourself and not follow through.

Set realistic expectations for yourself, if you do more than then its an added bonus! If not then you’re not gonna feel like you’re letting yourself down.

Sometimes I’ll set a goal for myself and realise when I’m just about to get to it, now its not necessarily what I had envisioned for my life, so I’ll change it. Life is ever evolving and so should you.

Change…

Don’t let change scare you. It’s easier said than done I know, but if you look at it another way it can be very exciting and you never know where it might take you!

Recently I’ve had a family tragedy where my uncle, who is like another father to me, had a massive heart attack. For years I had told my uncle that he needed to exercise and start living a healthier lifestyle by choosing better foods to fuel his body with.

Unfortunately his lifestyle caught up with him but by the grace of God he has pulled through and does not need open-heart surgery, I am so happy to report he has actually changed his ways and him and my aunt have now gotten on a very healthy eating program ! He phoned me the other day to say that he’s starting the gym, he’s lost 18 pounds in 3 1/2 weeks I couldn’t be more proud of him and my aunt for changing their lifestyle that they had become so accustomed to.

So even though this was somewhat of a forced change its made him stronger , stronger as a couple and its made them see they are capable of change!  I believe sometimes we are put through tests in life that might not be the greatest at first, but they can definitely make us stronger and a little wiser in the end.

So start thinking about your goals and what changes you wanna make now don’t wait for 2020 to hit .....

Go get it! #BoomfreakingBoom
