Disclaimer

General

  • I am a qualified Nutritional health coach and was certified through Sano School of Culinary Medicine and I am a member of The Complimentary Medical Association (CMA) 

  • I aim to use my scientific knowledge and expertise as a nutritional health coach in an accurate and professionally responsible manner.

  • I am committed to constantly developing and learning within my scope of practice and as a member of the CMA I am held accountable by their Code of Ethics

  • The advice given on this website is aimed at the adult general public and should not be used as an alternative to personally tailored advice given by your dietitian, doctor or nurse.

  • All of the opinions on this website are my own and are 100% honest but you have the right to know if I have accepted money or ‘freebies’ (samples) in the process of formulating those views (as per the Competition & marketing authority).

  • It is my policy to only accept compensation from companies I believe in and would already buy myself from/recommend.

  • A product mention or feature does not imply endorsement or recommendation of the product in question.

  • Any sponsorship or other forms of compensation are clearly marked and will never influence the content, topic or posts on this site.

 

Me & My Philosophy 

  • My aim is to motivate and inspire others of all ages to lead healthier and subsequently happier lives, one step at a time. I do this by writing about nutrition, providing healthy lifestyle tips, creating healthy recipes and occasionally reviewing products which I share via my blog.

  • I promote all foods to be eaten in moderation as a part of a healthy balanced diet 

  • I promote whole real foods and love to find ways to make your favourite dishes healthier

  • I promote healthy lifestyles as a way of life, rather than fad/short-term diets.

  • My blog is a reflection of who I am personally and professionally and you can rest assured that I will only blog about products and services I truly love.

 

Product/Service Reviews & Features

  • I only ever review or feature products/services which I personally would buy and that I believe, as a health coach, could enhance the health, well-being and/or diet variety of my readers.

  • Any reviews of products are based on my personal preference (taste) and a nutrition assessment based on my professional observation and training as a Nutritional health coach.

  • If a product doesn’t fit with my philosophy, has claims based on pseudoscience ,or (in my opinion) will not enhance the wellbeing of my readers (e.g. diet pills, junk food etc.) I won’t feature it. I cannot and will not be swayed by incentives of any kind.

  

Protein Powders/Drinks & Supplements

  • I occasionally use protein powders within my recipes as this is one way that I am able to decrease the calorie content of my recipes/increase the satiety (fullness) value (to help with weight management).

  • I do not recommend protein powders or protein drinks routinely, however I do believe that they can be convenient if someone has a relatively high protein need which cannot be met by food (high performing athletes) or someone is recovering from an illness.

  • I recommend that you follow personal advice provided to you by your dietitian, doctor or nurse regarding the intake of protein powders or protein drinks.

  • I personally take a multivitamin to support ageing woman and an Omega 3 supplement as a way of ensuring that I reach my recommended daily nutrient intakes however I would recommend that you speak to your doctor or dietitian before taking any supplements.

 

Allergens and Recipes

  • If you have any allergens you will need to check the nutritional information at the top of the recipe. I will only indicate if a recipe is free of the following - Gluten, Dairy, Egg, Soya, Nuts. It is still your responsibility to check the label of each ingredient used.

  • If you have an allergen always follow the personal advice provided to you by your doctor, nurse and/or dietitian.

 

Vegetarian/Vegan Recipes

  • If a recipe is tagged as ‘vegetarian’ or ‘vegan’ it is still your responsibility to check that each ingredient used is indeed vegetarian/vegan.

  • If milk is used in a vegan recipe then do not use cow’s milk (as this is not a vegan product).

  • If honey is used in a vegan recipe then please use an alternate liquid sweetener such as maple syrup or agave nectar.

  • Some recipes will contain meat/fish but when omitted this dish can be categorised as Vegan or vegetarian, it will be your responsibility to omit these ingredients.

  • If you are following a vegetarian/vegan diet I recommend you follow personal advice provided to you by your doctor, nurse and dietitian.

 

Affiliate Links & Codes

  • I occasionally receive questions about where ingredients/products/services used/mentioned can be purchased and so I link to (where possible) where either I personally have obtained them or where you can purchase them easily and at a reasonable price.

  • My blog content (advice and recipes) remain free to all because of the addition of affiliate links/codes; each blog post takes a considerable amount of time to write and each recipe takes a considerable amount of time and also money to develop/make. If you click certain hyperlinks and purchase items or use my discount code, in some cases I may receive a small commission e.g. from Amazon. Affiliate links do not affect the price that you pay.

  • If I link to an e-shop, it is not that I endorse the advice that they may give or their philosophy, it is merely a place where either I obtained the product in question, or that you can purchase it.

  • All blog posts containing affiliate links/codes are clearly labelled at the end.

  • I occasionally post carefully selected discount codes which reduce the price of certain products that I link to e.g. almond flour, which may mean that making my recipes is cheaper for you. I do this to benefit my readers and members and I too may also use them.
