Slavetosave Baby Shower Bash Giveaway #8:It was the summer of 2007 and Sarah Morris, in an effort to lose a few pounds, was counting calories. Like most diets this involved measuring, measuring, and more measuring. And then there was washing all the measuring cups before they could be used the next day. After premeasuring yet another bowl of cereal one morning Sarah asked herself, "Why can't dishes be marked like measuring cups? But without looking like measuring cups?"
She immediately started designing dishes that would do just that. A year later she filed a patent. In 2009, with the help of friends and family, Sarah started her own online store, Thinnerware.com. She hand-paints all the dishes herself in her little studio in Lehi, UT!
Thinnerwear specializes in stylish dishes for health-conscious individuals. Ever wonder how much you're eating? Ever try keeping track using measuring cups and food scales? If you have, you know what a pain it is. Not only do you have to premeasure or weigh everything before you eat, but you also have to wash a lot of extra dishes. Who has time for that?
That's where Thinnerware comes in. Each of their dishes are marked to help you know how much you're consuming, eliminating the need to premeasure. The best part is, the markings are hidden in the design, so Thinnerware dishes look like regular, everyday dinnerware.
The designs on Thinnerware dishes also double as measuring tools! See the picture below for portion size explanation. As you can see, the lines on the dishes are not labeled -- they look like part of the dish's design!
Thinnerware sent me a complete dish set in blue to try out. I love that the dishes are lead-free, and the handpainted designs are whimsical and unique! I've really enjoyed using Thinnerware's dishes to help me keep track of my nutritional servings while I'm pregnant. It makes it so easy for me to eat healthy -- there's almost no excuse! These dishes will really come in hand after the baby comes as well, when I start trying to lose the baby weight.
No matter if you're dieting or just trying to eat healthy, I think you'll love these fun and unique dishes!
