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.

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.
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.
