Portion Control Made Easy
Measure Up Bowl Set Review
I shared with you in my Wednesday Weigh In my tool and new best buddy for the journey to drop the pounds, Measure Up Bowls.
They have eliminated the mocking at my house.
You know the mocking.
Where you dig out the measuring cups, the food scale and you start measuring and weighing what you’re about to put in your mouth.
My kiddos have said, “Whatcha makin’, Mom?”
To which my reply has been, “my lunch”.
Here’s where the mockery has stepped up…I can SEE my kiddos rolling their eyeballs and doing the “crazy” thing with their finger by their head..I’m measuring my food, not blind!
There’s something jaw-dropping when you measure out your food.
Like granola. I love the stuff. Use to eat it by the handful.
I reasoned it’s good for you.
EVERYTHING. IN. IT.
The nuts, the oats, the dried fruit.
Bags of it consumed by me alone.
Turns out ONE portion is 1/4 Cup.
This portion is 140 calories. Thanks to Measure Up Bowls I can just pour the granola and get on with my day–and NOT consume my entire day’s caloric intake in a few handfuls!
I conducted a science experiment and measured the granola in a measuring cup, transferred it to the small bowl and it measured quite accurately.
When I measured the same amount into the larger bowl, there was some discrepancy.
I can eat more granola from the larger bowl…about 1/4 cup more!
I know this and therefore utilize the smaller bowl for my granola and dried fruit portions.
The pre-measured markings on the interior of the small Measure Up Bowl are 1/4 cup, 1/2 cup, and 3/4 of a cup.
The larger bowl in the set has markings of 1/2 cup, 1 cup, 1.5 cups, and 2 cups.
Perfect for a bowl of soup, cereal or salad.
For $29.99 you can buy a two-bowl set featuring a 2-cup “classic”
Measure Up Bowl and a smaller 3/4-cup capacity bowl marked with 1/4 cup increments.
The bowls are also available separately: the Classic retails for $19.99 and the Small Bowl suggested retail price of $13.99.
I love Measure Up Bowls because they give my life on diet normalcy.
I don’t have to hassle with my measuring cups and food scale.
This eliminates an extra step and extra dishes to wash.
I can measure and eat immediately.
Measure Up Bowls are made of porcelain and are dishwasher and microwave safe.
It looks and feels like a regular bowl so I don’t feel like the odd man out when we sit down to eat.
Measure Up also offers a food journal.
I really need to get focused and do this food journaling.
The Measure Up Food Journal is based on three months and helps you track
Calories, Fat, Protein and Carbs for each item you eat on a daily basis. It retails for $5.99
Measure Up Bowls can be purchase through the Measure Up Website, Amazon.com, or Target.
Measure Up Bowls were created by a Mom, Heather Harvey, who like me, found herself overweight.
She created Measure Up Bowls and lost 80 pounds!
I recommend these bowls to anyone.
Regardless of whether you are dieting or maintaining your weight, Measure Up Bowls offer Portion Control at a glance, without any added tools.
