“Cannon created this recipe because he loves eating fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains,” says Cannon’s mom, Amanda. “He couldn't always eat whole grains because of a rare food allergy that he's since outgrown. Cannon also has a very rare genetic disorder called Mosaic Trisomy 14 and Uniparental Disomy 14, so eating healthy and exercising is a top priority for us! Cannon has been making this recipe for a little over a year, changing things along the way. Living in California, we are so lucky to have a variety of fruits and veggies that are easily accessible.”
