Disclosures & Privacy Policy

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by Anne Mauney.

Disclaimers

This blog is not meant as a substitute for individualized nutrition counseling. Although I am a Registered Dietitian, the meal ideas and recipes displayed on this website are general and may not necessarily be suited to your needs. For a personalized nutrition plan, please see the options on my business website, Anne the RD.

I am not a certified personal trainer. Any workouts or exercises featured on this website or on my Pinterest pages are to be attempted at your own risk, after receiving approval from a doctor.

Partnerships and Compensation

This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

From time to time, I will partner with companies to test out new products, to create recipes using their products, and/or to promote their products, services, or events. These partnerships may be compensated, either in product or monetary compensation. Anytime I receive a product or access to an event/gym for free (or with payment involved), I will make that clear. In all posts, sponsored or not, the opinions are always my own – I would never accept money to say I liked something I didn’t, nor will I accept partnerships with companies or brands that I don’t believe in.

This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.

The owner(s) of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner(s) of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers’ own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Affiliate Links Disclosure

I occasionally post affiliate links; in particular, any links to Amazon.com products on this website are affiliate links.
