Have you heard? Bowls are the new plates. It’s true. Everything from smoothies to grain-filled dinners are being served in bowls these days. While you’ve always eaten your soup and cereal out of bowls (you’re not an animal!), you may find yourself reaching for them far more often — especially if you’ve been eating more yogurt lately.

If that’s the case, using the same old dish over and over (and over) again can get old. Like, really old. Do yourself a favor and get some new bowls to help fun up your routine — and the look of your kitchen cabinets. Maybe one (or some) of these?
