Livliga Dinner Plates

Sheila Kemper Dietrich recognized the need to "right-size" the food environment and set off to develop dinner plates imprinted with portion measurements for more healthy lifestyles.

The measurements on Livliga dinnerware provide a visual cue for the types of healthy food that should be eaten at a given meal, the proper amounts of those foods, as well as how much of the types of food that should be eaten in relationship to each other.

Dietrich says you won't always be using the measurements literally. For instance, you won't use the guides directly when you serve a salad. But you can still let them loosely guide how much of each ingredient and dressing you use.

She created the first prototypes by hand at a local "paint your own" pottery store and started using them as her household's primary tableware set.

Benevolent Bones

There are less than a handful of rawhide dog chews made in the U.S.A using all U.S.A beefhide. Benevolent Bones are 100% made in this country. No tricks, no scraps, no imported materials. 

The premium rawhide is made from corn-fed cows. The creators say this beefhide is typically thicker, longer lasting and is treated naturally.

A portion of sale proceeds go to support Soldiers Best Friend, an organization that trains and gifts service and therapeutic companion animals to soldiers and veterans afflicted with PTSD or TBI.
