TSC Series: The Best Damn…Bowls

The Skinny Confidential talks portion control.

Currently: lounging in bed ( Michael’s in Miami…so comp in bed! Shhhh. ) at 1:00 AM eating raw coconut ice cream ( casual ) while Pixy snores & Mr. T.Boone Pickens sticks his long nose in my bowl.

But not just any ice cream bowl.

My magic, favorite, skinny $8 bowl.

Honestly if you guys have followed TSC for a while then YOU KNOW HOW FANATICAL I AM when it comes to these bowls.

I’m so committed that I bring them on vacation.

For reals though.

I’m not a measurer…or a weigher…with my food. A lot of fitness bloggers will tell you to measure.


Personally, I’d rather stare at a fly on the wall for 372616183 hours straight then measure my food everyday, so basically anything that involves measurements, BYE.

So my bowls. They’re just so cute & perfectly pre-portioned. And by the way, no one is paying me to say this— I just like the damn bowls ( obviously? ).

I’ve used these Anthropologie miso soup sized bowls FOR YEARSSSSSS. Impressively, they haven’t faded yet.

Things I eat in these bowls: raw ice cream, flaxseed chips, oatmeal, cereal, raw almonds, fruit, salads, soups, tuna fish…& everything else in the world.

In my opinion, if you’re looking to lose a few LB’s then portion control is EVERYTHING. I always tell my friends ( ya, I’m that annoying-ass friend ) “don’t eat out of the bag of chips!!! You will eat way more than you think!! Get a freaking bowl.”

Not a bowl that fits a small country, mini bowls:

Ultimately I’m totally perplexed why anyone would have any other bowl available in the kitchen. Kidding. Sorta.

These cuties just make life so much easier & way prettier. Really everyone should own a set.

Ok, Boone has ice cream all over his nose ( he’s so nosey…in every way) & is proceeding to wipe it on my whitest of white duvet. G2G!! xx. Lauryn

  1. So true! When I started traveling through Asia I learned how the ladies in these cultures were so slim even though in America its known to avoid white rice, Asian culture thrives off white rice so when I came to this part of the world I was persuaded to eat what I never touched because of learning how to eat using portion control. If you ever eat at a real Sushi restaurant you are sure to see one small roll wrapped in rice with a side of miso soup and even more rice but the portion sizes are very small and culturally people share plus eating with chopsticks really makes it difficult to gorge. I now eat out of rice bowls and have found it easy to enjoy all of my favorite things without gaining an lb!
    I LOVE number 3 so cute 🙂
    Thank you for sharing xo C

  2. OMG! I love, love, love these bowls! Yep you’re so right it’s all about portion control, which I need to work on asap! Think these bowls are the way forward for me!

  3. These are goooorrggeeouuus! And yes! Serve a great purpose too! people think because I am 80 a week, I can eat whatever I want, but I still overdo my portion sizes. This would be very helpful!

  4. I love those bowls! I’ve seen them in pics from your posts before and I’m a huge huge fan!! I definitely need to pick some up. Anthropologie has got it going on.

    Thanks! | Carly

  5. Oh my gosh! I usually avoid Anthropology because I know I’ll want EVERYthing and I’m weary of the prices, but at $8 a bowl – how could you not buy these! I’ve always had a good eye for portion control, but I prefer smaller bowls anyway. I want them all!!!

    1. NO NO NO!! Michael is in Miami!!! I am still being a good girl but without him I rebel & use the computer (MUAHAHAHAAH!)

    2. Hahah!! You guys kill me!!! EEK! He is in Miami for work (I’ll be joining him tomorrow)…so I won’t tell him, if you don’t.

  6. These don’t necessarily serve the portion control purpose, but I have a set of bowls from Suite One Studio and they are my favorite things ever. Pricey, but they are my best damn bowls. So freakin’ cute, and I love supporting artisans. 🙂

  7. Love it. It’s way more fun to eat out of pretty things anyway.

    But if I click on a link to Anthropologie, I’m bound to buy everything. Their stuff is way too cute.

  8. Hi Lauryn, I totally agree with you about measuring and weighing food. I do NOT own a food scale and never will. I use the same types of containers for my snacks and meals so I know about the size of what I should be eating. These are a lot cuter than what I use though. Happy Thursday! 🙂

  9. I like these bowls you posted and now I’m thinking about ordering some! Love this post and yesterday’s post about the nip covers. I didn’t know about that product but I’m so glad I do now! Love your blog 🙂

  10. I actually bought mine in tj maxx, marshalls, and home goods. They even come with lids so you can store it in the fridge ! Prices vary from $3 to $12. There amazing !!

  11. For anyone on a budget, I’ve seen bowls that look almost identical to these at Ross, Marshall’s, and TJ Maxx for super cheap. 🙂
