My Morning Breakfast

My Morning Breakfast

Today’s post will be a little different than most, and I will do my best to not come across sounding like a late night infomercial 🙂

I have been intrigued by the nutritional benefits that I have heard about from folks that are using the Nutri-Bullet. As a result, in December I decided that I would ask Santa Claus if he might bring me a Nutri-Bullet for Christmas. When Christmas arrived sure enough he had left one for me beneath the tree. A few days later I made a trip to the local grocery store to stock up on some fresh fruits and vegetables and began making my green smoothie for breakfast each morning. After having one of these smoothies each morning for the last three weeks I can honestly say that there are indeed incredible benefits to them. The Nutri-Bullet blends all the ingredients down so that the digestive system can easily extract the maximum amount of nutrients present within the concoction. In three short weeks I have dropped roughly 12 pounds, have noticeable increased energy, and have completely eliminated the need for my prescription medication for acid reflux. I have even been able to cut back on the amount of medication that I have to take for my asthma. I now honestly believe that if the body is getting the proper amount of nutrients that it requires then there will be a reduced dependency for such prescription medications, as the body will heal itself once it is receiving enough nutrients, and this is a simple and great tasting way to do so.

I doubt that I will be able to get back down to my high school weight :), but I do think that there are significant health benefits to the green smoothie. Here is what I am adding to mine that is pictured above: two handfuls of spinach, pear, apple, banana, pineapple, flax seeds, and almonds. Once the ingredients are added to the cup it takes less than 30 seconds to blend. Stay tuned for more great recipes 🙂

I am currently hanging out at the cottage with a bad back and the Cartoon Camera Pro app for android phones. The back flared up a couples of days ago and is just now starting to feel a little better. While I was resting the back I was playing around with the Colored Edges preset in Cartoon Camera Pro with a few cottage scenes. Above is the front door of the cottage and below is a scene from the living room.

And below is a scene from looking out from the dock. The Colored Edges preset had a very interesting effect on the clouds.

I’ve slacked off on my smartphone snaps lately due to busy schedule and from having too much fun with the images captured while using the Sigma 15mm f2.8 EX DG Fisheye Lens.

Here are a couple of older smartphone images taken along a scenic section of the Rosseau River in Ontario’s Muskoka Region.

Both images have completely processed on my Samsung S2X using the Nik Software app Snapseed, as has this edition of the Smartphone Snap, which has been prepared and posted from the WordPress app for android devices.

Yikes, I hope it turns out okay. New technology can challenging for some folks; including yours truly.

Snapping Turtle_20130615_110105Common Snapping Turtle in Beaver Pond

This week’s SmartPhone Snap is a follow-up to the previously posted Turtle-scape. As mentioned in that post, I first came across the snapping turtle as it was lazily basking on the surface of a beaver pond along the path I typically take my dog Koko for a walk, when I am at the family cottage in the Parry Sound region of Ontario. Since the only camera I had with me at the time was the one on my Samsung S2X I decided to tie Koko to a nearby tree and make my way to the edge for a couple of quick snaps. After taking Koko back to the cottage I went back out to the beaver pond for some additional images with the Nikon D800.

Hope you like this week’s edition of the SmartPhone Snap 🙂
