AquaTally {Review}

by Jennifer Lynn-Pullman on April 8, 2014

 I am sure you know hydration is important, especially since are bodies are about 80% water.  I frequently hear people say “I have to drink more water”.  I myself have to make a conscious effort to drink more fluid, especially water.  I found a few years ago that I consumed more fluid if I used an insulated cup with a straw.  I have a collection of them!  So when AquaTally contacted me about trying out their hydration cup I jumped at the chance.

The AquaTally hydration cup holds 16 ounces.  The indicator ring is marked from zero to eight.  Each number represents 1 cup of fluid.  This is a great tool for keeping track of your fluid intake.  I have used several apps to try to keep track of my fluid intake, but the AquaTally is so much easier.

The AquaTally retails for $11.95 and is available in three colors.   You can purchase an AquaTally cup through their website.  AquaTally is offering my readers a 25% discount using the code healthy.

by Jennifer Lynn-Pullman on March 31, 2014

As a thePlate Boutique Gadget Guru for AroundthePlate.com I was given my first gadget to test.  The Lekue Omelet Maker.  The omelet maker allows you to quickly make a beautiful omelet in your microwave.  The Lekue Omelet Maker is dishwasher safe and is made of 100% platinum silicone.  Recipes for different omelets can be found on the Lekue website.

I chose to make a southwestern themed omelet.  I used black beans, tomato, garlic, avocado, garlic and yellow pepper.

 According to the Lekue directions you place the vegetables with a bit of oil in the omelet maker and cook in your microwave for 3 minutes. I save the avocado for later in the cooking process.

eggsandmilk

 Beat two eggs and add in 1/4 cup of milk.  Add egg mixture to the cooked vegetables. I added in the avocado here and shredded cheese.

 Place back into the microwave and cook for 2 minutes.  Turn the omelet maker over and cook for an additional 30 seconds.

You end up with a perfect looking omelet.  I can’t count how many times I have made an omelet on my stove top and had it fall apart and look like a mess! The Lekue Omelet maker is a great tool for your kitchen.  The Omelet Maker retails for $15.00.  You can order the Lekue Omelet Maker from thePlate Boutique.  Receive a 15% off discount on your order with the code: omelet15
