A Midsummer’s Weigh-In with Beets BLU Scale

By: Finance Foodie

As The Mister and I enjoy our summer cuisine largely consisting of juicy burgers, hearty BBQ and fruity frozen cocktails, I am constantly reminding myself about maintaining an active, balanced and healthy lifestyle.

And despite the humid weather, I am still determined to get my 10,000 steps in as part of my daily routine. While I can easily track my daily steps on my phone, I have no idea if I am actually maintaining weight or not. As such, I decided to try the Beets BLU Bluetooth Scale that can not only monitor our daily weight progression but the scale can also upload our data via Bluetooth to our phones for easy access and tracking!
The Beets BLU folks have created an app that works for both iPhone and Android phones so The Mister and I can each use our own phones to track our own progress (imagine if we could get two remote controls!).
The summertime always seems to go by quickly and this year will probably be no exception. While it’s still too early for any “Summertime Sadness” talk (though if the hot and sticky weather keeps up...), I know that as summer winds down it will be more difficult for me to get my 10,000 daily steps target; therefore, I am thrilled I now have a much easier time checking my weight and monitoring my progress with my new scale!⁠⁠⁠⁠

Sweet and Succulent at Summer Fancy Food Show 2016

By Finance Foodie

The Specialty Food Association's Annual Fancy Food Show in New York City is probably one of my favorite things to attend - I mean, where else can you indulge yourself with over 150,000 types of food related items over the span of three days?
Welcome Indeed!
Think high end Costco on autopilot and you will get the picture. Like every year prior, I try to take as much in as possible, but alas I probably only hit less than 25% of the items. So until science can build me an extra stomach, you will just have to settle for some of the highlights I perused this year.
