Remotely Possible

Now that Cole has moved to New York, Charlotte and I are doing a lot more traveling. We love getting out of Collywood, but traveling comes with its own set of complications.

Seriously y'all, where are you going to find the best Tex-Mex in the Big Apple? Is that pizza place on 44th Street with the two-for-one lunch deal any good? Finding restaurants that fit your mood (and budget) can be a challenge when you're on the road.

Not anymore, thanks to a new App you're just gonna love. The new BiteHunter App is one-part search engine, one part Google Maps and one part Groupon. It's totally amazing and it's nationwide. Yeah, we use it in New York, but it works just as well in BIG D as it does in the Big Apple. Here's the 411.



BiteHunter scavenges the web for all of the best deals that restaurants are promoting on sources like Twitter, Facebook, blogs, websites, newsletters, daily deal sites and more - and compiles it in one easy-to-navigate website. Its search capabilities allow you to find listings by delivery options, location, specific kinds of food and more.


If you're thinking, "this sounds like a Kayak.com for the restaurant world," then you've got a pretty good idea of what's going on here.


It gives you the ability to view the offers via list or map and filter the offers via price, distance, type of deal and more. Restaurant information, related deals, reviews, photos and menus of each location are available and you can also "share" deals, redeem deals and even reserve tables with the App. All information is in real-time, so depending on the time of day, different tabs, such as lunch specials or happy hour deals, are shown.


What's it cost? Since you're a Boomer Brief reader, it's FREE (it's even free if you're not a Boomer Brief reader, but let's just keep that between you and me).

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
