As a registered dietitian nutritionist, I enjoy testing new food and wellness products and sharing my recommendations with my readers. Occasionally companies and brands will send me free samples and products or services free of charge. Whenever I review or refer to a product that was given to me, I will state that I received free samples. If there is no disclosure statement, you can assume I purchased the product with my own funds.
If a product review or sponsored post is completed at the request of a company/brand, my compensation of cash or product will not factor into my review. If I don’t like a product, I will not review it on the blog. Occasionally, I will write sponsored posts, for which I am paid in cash or other compensation. If and when I do write a sponsored post or recipe, I make it clear with a disclosure statement at the beginning of the post/recipe. I often participate in recipe contests and am eligible to win prizes. My participation in a recipe contest will also be disclosed.
If I link to a product or company or where to purchase the item, this link may be an affiliate one. That means that if you click on the link in my blog post and buy something, I’ll receive a small percentage for referring you. I’ll let you know when a linked blog post or page includes affiliate links.
