Yum Yum Dishes

I officially started recording my weight on 4/25/2011 for my Quit Eating Like a Pig diet and although I'm not going to tell you that number, I am going to brag that I have officially lost eight pounds in the first month!!! My diet consists of portion control and walking. As I've started controlling my portions, I've noticed that I have naturally started picking foods that are better for me. Guide to Online Schools has information on nutrition programs for those of you who also have a passion for healthy foods. The more knowledge we have, the healthier choices we can make.

For example, today's lunch consists of a hard-boiled egg, a bunch of red raspberries and a handful of wheat crackers. While I was preparing my lunch today, I remembered I just received a Yum Yum Bowl from Yum Yum Dishes. I put each of my portions into the Yum Yum Bowl to see if what I had chosen was what I would have measured into the bowl and sure enough, it was a perfect fit each time!


Tracy Adler, the proprietor of Yum Yum Dishes, originally made this 4 ounce bowl to help her control her snacking portions. I think we can all attest to sitting down with a bag of chips and not being able to eat just a few! This is the perfect tool for making sure we snackers eat a snack only, and not a fourth meal. It's also a perfect size for children.
Isn't this ceramic Yum Yum Dish adorable? It will definitely remind me to control my portions, whether it's my snack-time or meal-time. And I will be very happy if I can maintain an eight pound weight loss each month!

***The generous folks at Yum Yum Dishes are offering a limited time discount to my readers! For the next two weeks only, you will receive a $5.00 discount on a set of Yum Yum Dishes when you use the coupon code PLANET (all in caps).

They even post videos made by their customers (maybe even you) who use their dishes in new and creative ways! Thanks Yum Yum Dishes!
Disclosure: I received a Yum Yum bowl at no cost. Opinion is mine.

  2. what a cute idea! I use ramekins to do sort of the same thing but for some reason the "yum yum" really adds appeal to it! haha
