Each piece of Livliga® portion control dinnerware is designed to look striking as a suite of dishware. Each dish also has its own unique portion indicators/measurements to guide you in using the right amount of food as described by a recipe or single serving noted on the side of a package. In addition to its beautiful design, the 4-piece place setting is right-sized which means they are smaller than the average dinnerware sold today. All are proportionally designed with wide rims so when you put the right-sized food portions on your plate and in your bowl or mug it will look like “enough” so that at the end of your meal you will feel satisfied.
The 16-piece set, portion control dinnerware, service for 4 includes:
4 Dinner Plates
4 Side Plates
The dinner portion control plate has 5 measurements on it. The largest circle is for your vegetable or fruit and designates a 1 cup measurement. The icon with 2 circles indicates a ¾ cup serving as well as a ½ cup serving which are typical serving sizes for the starch or grain in a given meal. The squared icon is for your protein and is typically between 2–6 ounces. The smallest icon is a “dollop” and measures ⅛ cup (2 tablespoons) of sauce, condiment, salad dressing or jam.
The luncheon/salad plate has 3 measurements on it. The largest icon is a double circle with the outer circle being a ¾ cup serving and the inner circle providing a ½ cup measure. There is a separate ⅛ cup (2 tablespoons) icon as well on the plate.
The bowl is proportionally right-sized to accommodate a 1 cup serving (8 ounces) as well as a 1 ½ cup serving (12 ounces), depending on the meal and recipe used.
The mug is designed to accommodate a right-sized single serving amount of 8 ounces to be used for your morning “joe” or tea or hot chocolate or for any other drink you prefer to place in a mug.
