Each blogger is responsible for their own giveaway and my giveaway is for the very awesome Yum Yum bowls and plates. As most of you know, I have lost a lot of weight since having Zane. Actually, I stepped on the scale at the doctors office last week, and I am at my lowest weight since High School- Yah!! Part of my weight loss was not only eating right and exercising, but limiting my portion size. Portion size is something I have always struggled with since I was a small girl. I thought I was eating good but after 5 servings of healthy foods, it doesn’t justify eating healthy in the first place. Can you relate to my problem of portion size problem?
So I have found the perfect solution and that is Yum Yum dishes. Yum Yum dishes are truly adorable plates and dishes that are sized perfectly for correct portion sizes. By having the correct measurements on your plate, it will help you from the dreaded overeating and feeling stuffed problem. How many times do you grab a bunch of potato chips right from the bag? With the Yum Yum dishes, you can measure out the correct amount you should have and then stop when you see the saying on the bottom of the bowl, that Yum Yum time is over. Once I reach those words on the bottom of the bowl, it is motivation for me not to go for the second serving of food. I not only like it for me, but I use it as “bribing” mechanism for my daughter. I let her have her nightly snack in the Yum Yum bowl and she knows when she reaches the over on the bottom, she is done and not to ask for another. It really works!
We a chance to review 4- 9 inch dinner plates and 4-4 oz. bowls. The 9 inch dinner plates were a perfect size and sectioned off in fours, so you can enjoy something from every food group. There are sections on your plate for protein, carbs, and vegetables. The 9 inch plate is also a perfect sized plate and it has enough food on that plate to keep me going to the next meal, without feeling really full. No one likes that ” I need to lay down feeling.” Well, with the Yum Yum plates you will not have this problem. Along the same line, Yum Yum dishes came out with the 4 oz, perfectly sized bowls. These bowls are adorable to take with you to the movies ( shhh..okay, sometimes I sneak food in) or to just enjoy them in the comfort in your house. Like I said before, my daughter and I use these bowls all day long. Luckily, there is 4 to a set so you can rotate throughout the day and no need to do washing all day long either. I also would be remiss without the adding the fact that these plates come in the most adorable and fun colors- blues, yellows, reds, and greens!
