Yum Yum Dish Review

Being a stay-at-home mom presents me with way too many opportunities to fill up on junk food. As entertaining as a 2-year-old can be, my daughter isn’t my only source of entertainment. I spend most of my time in front of the computer or in the kitchen baking these days. When I’m trying out new recipes or bake mixes, the last thing I am worrying about is how much caloric intake I am dealing with. I know that rigid diets just don’t work; in fact, they seem to encourage binges to take place and then the dieter is back to square one.

The Yum Yum Dish is a small, 4 oz. ceramic bowl available in 4 different colors that is a new accessory to my snacking. My Yum Yum Dish encourages me to stay on track by eating smaller portions of my favorite snacks. Now instead of eating half of a pan of brownies in one sitting, I’ll only eat the one or two brownies that can fit into my Yum Yum Dish. When it’s gone, the message on the bottom of my Yum Yum Dish makes it clear that snack time is over. As long as I don’t refill the bowl, the Yum Yum Dish is doing its job to keep me healthy and fit.

I definitely think that moderation is the key, and I’ve been trying to practice that when going out to dinner, drinking sodas, and having desserts. I tend to eat very little (if at all) during the day, and then eat a large amount all at once around dinner time, or sometimes even later than that. While the Yum Yum Dish isn’t going to fix all of my eating problems, it will certainly help.

The Yum Yum Dish’s website was really helpful in giving me creative ideas on how I could put this adorable little ceramic bowl to use. Since it’s microwaveable, I could use it for salsa or chip dip, or  use one of the user submitted recipes to create my own tasty treat.

The Yum Yum Dish is a perfect gift for people of all ages. They can be purchased on the product’s website in packs of 4 (one of each color) for $22.00. The next time you need a fun gift for the person who already has everything, you may want to consider Yum Yum Dishes.
