A New Opportunity in 2022 - Livliga Licensing and Consultation Services

Friday, December 31, 2021

As the year ends Livliga would like to introduce you to our new business endeavors. Starting in 2022 Livliga is pivoting to Licensing and Consultation services. We are interested in working with businesses and their partners to continue to bring Livliga’s innovative approach to healthy eating to those who need our award winning and proven products and concepts.

Over the past 10 years Livliga has provided and grown its stable of portion control products for health-conscious and health-challenged individuals across the United States and other countries through hospitals, clinics, universities, wellness businesses and online retail stores. These science-based products were developed specifically for use for those living with diabetes, bariatric patients, those with eating disorders, those wanting to learn and live a healthier lifestyle, and for children so they can have the support they need to learn about healthy eating and live a healthy life.


Benefits of Livliga


Livliga is the only patented portion control dinnerware on the market. It does 3 important things:

  • It uses psychology in the design to help an individual eat right-sized amounts of food AND feel satisfied
  • It has built in measurement in every dish so it makes measuring servings easy (the map is on the back of all dinner plates)
  • It is a system so it makes preparing and serving meals part of a healthy habit anyone can benefit from and enjoy everyday

Licensing Our Product
Livliga has 3 utility patents. Our innovation is unique and proven to be effective. We have sold our product to consumers, hospitals, clinics and universities. We have also produced private label products for specific companies using our unique iconic design. Individuals have been using it, loving it, and living a healthier lifestyle by using our products.

We are now only offering our product through licensing agreements. These agreements are tailored to the specific interests and needs of each company. Contact us so we can work with your company in meeting your focussed needs.

Happy Holidays with Gratitude!

Monday, December 27, 2021


Happy Holidays From Livliga

Happy Holidays! We have found there are so many reasons to be grateful this year. Out of a very difficult decision to close down Livliga’s retail business, we have found so much fulfillment in giving our remaining product to individuals and nonprofits.

In the final days of October we held a “One Day Give Away” that we ended up extending over the course of a weekend. Close to 700 people participated. Many of those individuals reached out to us thanking us for the opportunity and telling us how Livliga has helped them in their lives. Nothing could be more meaningful to us.

Then in November we reached out to nonprofits to donate our product to help those they serve. Many of the nonprofits are those that we have worked with over the years, however, a number of you recommended new nonprofits that we were able to donate product to as well. We are proud to have partnered with these organizations:

Ability KC
Allen Village School
Bridge House
Children’s Center for Healthy Lifestyles and Nutrition
Children with Diabetes
Colorado Children’s Hospital
Diabetes Sisters
Discovery Cube
International Rescue Committee
KC Catholic Charities
KC Girls Preparatory School
Lead to Read KC
Second Chance Center
Warren Village
YMCA of Northern Colorado

We are thrilled to end the year by giving to so many. Our product will live on helping others.

As we end this year of 2021 we wish you the best of holidays. And as we look forward to what 2022 brings, as Livliga pivots to licensing and consultation services, we wish you all the best in the new year ahead.

Live vibrant,

Sheila and Walt Dietrich


For Those Of You Who Participated In Our Giveaway - A Final Shipping Update

Tuesday, November 23, 2021


Final Shipping Update

Final Shipping Update

All orders have now been shipped! As we had hoped, we got all packages out before Thanksgiving. We want to thank everyone for their patience as we got all your giveaway orders processed and sent. We hope you and those you share our product with will enjoy it for years to come.

We did run out of the ⅓ cup and ¼ cup LivSpoons. For those of you that ordered the free giveaway 6 piece LivSpoons we did go ahead and send you for free a 4 piece LivSpoon original set rather than not sending you any of the LivSpoons. We called a few of you and you gave us the feedback that you would appreciate our sending what we had available so that is what we did. The original LivSpoons set is the cornerstone to our Livliga system and maps directly to our plates so it is a great set to have and wonderful to use for serving up right sized meals.  If you plan to give it as a gift, it is packaged beautifully and ready to wrap!

As we closed our retail doors at the end of October we no longer have any product available for sale. That is why we had the giveaway event. If you are looking for additional product we recommend you look on Amazon or Ebay where third parties may continue to sell our product. We are not associated with these other retailers and do not have control over what they may choose to charge. Hopefully at sometime in the near future we will have our product licensed and available through other companies. We will keep you posted.

We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving,

Live vibrant,

Sheila and Walt Dietrich

For Those of You Who Took Advantage of Our Giveaway - A Shipping Update

Sunday, November 7, 2021
Livliga Giveaway Shipping Update

We wanted to up date those of you who have not yet received your giveaway orders. We received well over 600 orders, most with multiple items, during our 5 day giveaway. It makes our hearts glad that so many people took advantage of this opportunity. 

If you received an order number then rest assured we will be fulfilling your order. We are shipping out orders everyday, however, because of the volume of the giveaway orders as well as the size of those orders it is taking us longer to get them processed. Our current estimate is to get these orders completed and out the door by Thanksgiving. 

When your order is ready to ship you will receive an email with the tracking information. At that point you can track your order as it is in process of being delivered to you. 

If you would like to contact us directly you can do so by writing to us at info@livligahome.com .

Enjoy! And Live vibrant!


This May be Goodbye but it is not Farewell

Monday, November 1, 2021

Dear Friends and Supporters-

Well, this is it! We hope you saw our big announcement at the beginning of October sharing that we are closing down our retail operation. We hope you were able to take advantage of our “once-in-a-lifetime” sales. We closed our retail doors yesterday, October 31.

Livliga now has a new website. As of today, November 1, please go check out our new look and feel. It reflects the new direction our company has taken. You can access it through our url address: Livliga.com.

Livliga is transitioning to a new business model. We are now only offering our product through licensing agreements. These agreements will be tailored to the specific interests and needs of each company. Should you be interested in finding out more or would like to pursue a licensing agreement, please contact us so we can assist you in meeting your needs.

We will also be offering consultation services. Livliga’s success is as a result of years of research and development. With 3 utility patents and 3 national awards we have been able to help people live healthier lives. We want to make our years of experience available to others. To make an appointment or to find out more about our consultation services please feel free to reach out to us.

Walt and I so appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and support as we developed our tableware line, launched it, and expanded it over the years. Our retail operation grew every year…thanks to you!

The Livliga Team is so proud of the innovation we introduced to the Health and Wellness industry. We are eager to continue to expand the possibilities through our licensing and consultation services. It took a lot of talent to deliver our unique and effective line of tableware so we plan on leveraging that intelligence as we move forward.

Finally, we are humbled by the difference we have made in so many people’s lives. We get notes, emails, and reviews everyday from people sharing their stories on why Livliga works and how Livliga has made a difference in their lives. There can be no greater success than those stories!

We look forward to our next adventures in continuing our mission to help people live healthier lives. Let us know how we can work together to advance this effort for all of us.

Live vibrant!
Sheila and Walt Dietrich

Guest Blog: Slow Cooker Cuban-Style Beef Stew By Shelby Kinnaird

Slow Cooker Cuban-Style Beef Stew by Shelby Kinnaird
Cuban-Style Beef Stew called Carne con Papas Served Up on Livliga!

Fall has arrived and you know what that means: it’s slow cooker season! Dust off your pot and let’s make a Cuban-Style Beef Stew called Carne con Papas.

When I told my friend Anna Norton, CEO of DiabetesSisters, that I was writing a healthy slow cooker cookbook, she told me about a traditional Cuban recipe from her mother, Caridad Tang. Anna had taken her mother’s recipe and adapted it for both the slow cooker and to make it more diabetes-friendly. She wanted to make sure she exposed her son to the foods of her childhood.

Let me tell you, after this dish had been cooking for a few hours, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the beef stew my mom and grandma used to make. The aroma was intoxicating and very familiar even though I don’t have a drop of Cuban blood in me.

Book Review - Diabetes Slow Cooker Cookbook by Shelby Kinnaird and Simone Harounian

Monday, October 11, 2021


Diabetes Slow Cooker Cookbook

I want to mention upfront that I received a complimentary copy of this book and was asked to share a review of my honest thoughts regarding “Diabetes Slow Cooker Cookbook.” The thoughts below are my own and come from reading the cookbook and testing out some of the recipes.

This is a great Slow Cooker cookbook! I have been a follower and admirer of Shelby Kinnaird for many years. The partnership between Shelby and Simone Harounian shines through this book. It is clear they want to help people live life as their healthiest selves. They do this throughout the cookbook by sharing their expertise, experience and passion. Shelby and Simone put their personal and practical knowledge on the line for all of us. It is clear they have put thought and their love for us and good food on every page.

First they share why slow cookers can be great for your health. This includes a section about “Eating Healthy with Diabetes” which is an uncomplicated overview of the basics. It is a great reference guide for those living with diabetes…and honestly relevant to all of us wanting to eat healthy.

Then there is a section on “Golden Rules of Slow Cooking.” You are going to love this part! Again it is filled with common sense advice when using slow cookers. We all need to be reminded of these Golden Rules!

There are many other parts of the book that help you be a better cook and a successful chef with a slow cooker. For instance, they guide you on how to make a balanced meal using the recipes in the cookbook. Shelby and Simone also point out that there is always room for Comfort Food in a healthy lifestyle and they list some of their favorites they have included in the cookbook.

Sweet and Sour Scallops from Diabetes Slow Cooker Cookbook

When checking out the merits of a cookbook it is a must that you also check out the recipes. I can say I have prepared two recipes so far: “Sweet and Sour Scallops” (see photo above) which I served with brown rice and steamed edamame as well as a side dish, “Orange Carrots and Parsnips” which I served with roasted pork and steamed broccoli. The ingredients included are primarily fresh and focused on wonderful combinations of whole foods that are accessible at your local grocery store. Both were easy to follow, created attractive dishes, and were tasty. My true test is to share recipes with my family and if they say the recipes are a “repeat” then I know they have hit the mark. Both recipes were voted to be “repeats.”

If you are looking for a slow cooker cookbook that also provides a great resource for those living with diabetes as well as those wanting to live a healthy lifestyle, this book is for you. I for one am adding it to my bookshelf with my other favorites that I use regularly. I recommend this cookbook.
