About this project
Hi! I’m Kelly, the author of the healthy living and weight loss blog, No Sugar Sweet Life. I also write regularly for the juicing website RebootwithJoe.com based on the documentary "Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead" and have had articles published by The Saturday Evening Post, Beautiful Layers Magazine, Chobani, and more.
I struggled with weight my entire adult life. I "dieted" year after year and yet kept gaining weight. But, my daughter's birth was the wake-up call I needed. How could I teach her to live a happy, healthy life if I wasn’t living it myself?
Just a few small changes made all the difference. They were:
· Cutting out sugar.
· Adding veggie juices.
· Eating smaller portions. Studies show that just an extra 100 calories a day leads to a 10 pound weight gain per year!
I've lost 55 pounds, with just a few more to go -- all with no calorie, point, or nutrient counting -- and I know I can make my goal because I've got the knowledge and tools to succeed now.
While on my journey, I developed the Simple Portion bowls. I wanted something beautiful to motivate and carry me through to "healthy."
WHAT ARE SIMPLE PORTION BOWLS?
Simple Portion bowls are a unique, stylish, and smart way to be more health-savvy and in control. The Large bowl has an artistic pattern that shows where the bowl is filled to 1/2 cup and 1 cup. The Small bowl measures 1/4 cup. Use the Large bowl for cereal, rice, pasta, veggies, yogurt, etc... Use the Small bowl for more calorie-dense foods like granola, almonds, dried fruit, etc...
It's that simple.
WHY THEY'RE SO SPECIAL:
There are some dieting "tools" on the market right now, but a lot of them are either complicated or ugly, or worse... both. (Oh
Dieter, you are hereby banished from the kitchen and forced to eat out
of this ugly bowl until you drop a few pounds... UGH, no thank you!) My idea is to
combine a really beautiful bowl (tilted shape with modern designs) with a helpful measurement
line for common foods.
To me, less is more and beauty is just as important as function. You (and I) deserve the best! You don't have to measure EVERYTHING, just the stuff that matters... like the pasta and rice and granola and heavier foods that we often overeat.
HOW KICKSTARTER WILL HELP:
I have spent the last year and a half designing the Simple Portion bowls, working with the manufacturer to make sure they are perfect and ready for production. We’re there, folks! All we have to do is submit our first order.
That’s where Kickstarter comes in. The ordering minimum on the production of these bowls is gigantic. Thousands upon thousands have to be ordered to make the cost manageable for both me and YOU! So how Kickstarter works is that you pledge on your credit card to buy a set or two…or three :) of these bowls. Your card is not charged until the end of the 60 day Kickstarter campaign, and it is only charged if the FULL monetary goal is met. So your card is only charged, and you only get your bowls if enough people are on board and as excited about them as I am!!!
HIGH QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP:
Made of porcelain, these bowls are heavy-duty, dishwasher-safe, and microwave-safe. To get the most benefit from these bowls, you'll use them every day, and they will last. You are investing in high quality materials, beautiful original designs, supreme functionality, and shipping to your home.
I have set up some wonderful rewards to go along with the pledges, so if you order one set of bowls, you’ll also receive 5 printed recipe cards that coordinate with the style of bowls – the Sweet set will get 5 healthy dessert recipes, the Savory will get 5 savory dinner recipes -- you get the picture. And what I’m most excited about is that if you pre-order 2 sets of any style, you will get a full 30+ page bound cookbook featuring my most popular No Sugar Sweet Life recipes as well as some specially created just for Kickstarter!!
START LIVING THE HAPPY, HEALTHY LIFE!
I hope you will partner with me on this journey towards a happy, healthy life. 2013 can be YOUR year…the year you decide to do something GREAT for yourself! And remember, all it took was small changes: smaller portions, more veggie juices, and less sugar.
Risks and challenges
As I mentioned, these have been carried through the entire production process and are ready to go! The manufacturer is just waiting for me to hit the SUBMIT button on my order :) Once the bowls are ordered, it is estimated to take about 3 to 4 months for delivery.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
