The other day I was poking around blogs and came across Measure Up Bowls at Gathering My Roses. Have you ever heard of them?? I was so impressed with them that I went ahead and bought them right then. I purchased mine through Target. The retail price is $29.99 for the two bowls. Once I started using them I fell in love with them even more. So I decided to contact Heather, the CEO of the company and she graciously has provided me with set to do a Giveaway! Yay!
From her Website:
The Measure Up Bowls are a solution to portion control at every meal. The Classic bowl is for soups, pastas, rice, cereal, chili, anything you eat out of a bowl. The pre-measured portions on the classic are 1/2 cup to 2 cups. The Small bowl is perfect for high fat, calorie dense foods such as chips, ice cream, nuts, and granola. These foods should be enjoyed in a smaller serving size. 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 measurements marked are perfect. They are clear and easy to read -- no guess work here!
The bowls are made of microwave and dishwasher-safe porcelain. Easy to use and easy to clean up. Heather, the creator of the Measure Up Bowls was an old hand at dieting. After the birth of her second child, she decided to change her lifestyle and drop the fad diets and the pounds she'd gained. In her own words: One morning while measuring out my cereal, I though this would be so much easier if the measurements for what I was eating was inside of the bowl I was eating out of. I wouldn't need to wash or store the measuring cups. It would eliminate a whole step. I looked for it and could not find it anywhere. So I started developing the Measure Up Bowl. That was over two years ago, and with hard work and the loving support of my family and friends I am proud to say the Measure Up Bowl is here! I am even prouder to say it took me about 11 months to lose 80 pounds and I have kept it off for over two years. I continue to experiment with different recipes, exercise routines, and fitness strategies. I am developing many other Measure Up healthy lifestyle tools such as a Measure Up Journal, a plastic children's Measure Up Bowl, and many other fun and exciting products soon to be announced. I have taken every step in this weight loss journey and sincerely hope my experiences and products help you no matter what your goals are.
They are super convenient and it saves time on having to wash more dishes. Unless you measure it, you really have no idea how much you are consuming but this takes all the guesswork out of it. I know that my concept of portions was very disproportionate to what they really are.
