Yum Yum Dishes | Moderation made easy #giveaway


Last year, when Mr. Serious and I were really working on getting back in shape and eating healthy, we quickly realized that exercising wasn’t enough. We had to watch what we were eating, too.  But, we didn’t want to do a diet plan. We wanted to watch what we were eating, but more importantly, the portions of those food. A service of starchy foods (pasta, rice, etc) is way smaller than we ever imagined.

Recently, I was introduced to YumYumDishes, perfect for portion control while you are eating.

We had perfected using the smaller plates in our set for dinner. This was really helpful in our portion controlling, but, were we getting the right portions of the right things?

Tracy Adler has created Yum Yum Dishes™ and the 9Plate. This is a 9 inch dinner plate will help you eat correctly sized portions for all meals. The YumYumPlates have (very lightly) drawn sections. On the top half is a space for your veggies (and we did veggies and fruit).  On the bottom, split in two (so a quarter of the plate for each) is a space for your meat/protein and your carbs.

I made some chicken capellini the other night (yum..artichoke hearts and capers..delicious) and used my plate to make sure I gave myself proper portions. (Like I mentioned, it might be cheating, but I did fruit and veggies together in that space). Now, it might seem like it’s not a lot of food, but guess what? I was full (even 8 months pregnant) and satisfied with this dinner and so was Mr. Serious.

It’s hard to tell in the picture, but one of my favorite features is that is has a really high lip.  Not like a bowl, but higher than a plate.  Which makes it much easier for the girls to eat without getting food (well, as much food) on the table.

These plates have been the “go-to” plates for our family at dinner time (as long as they are clean!)

In addition to the plates, which come in pre-boxed sets in our four fun colors: cherry red, sunshine yellow, pistachio green and bold blue for $29, they also sell snack bowls with snap-on plastic lids to allow you to carry your favorite snacks with you where ever you go.
