I am not a professional chef, dietician, medical professional, or nutritionist. This blog is a reflection of my opinions and general knowledge that I’ve gained from personal experience and information I’ve come across, and it’s accurate to the best of my knowledge. My recipes should be taken as a guideline only, and your best judgment should be used to ensure the food is safely prepared and/or a good fit for your diet. Please consult a medical professional if you are unsure.
Calorie information is provided on some of my recipes. This information is provided as a courtesy only and should be construed as an estimate rather than a guarantee. To calculate this information, I use online nutrition calculators and existing nutrition labels, which may have errors that I am unaware of. Ingredients themselves and products from brand-to-brand vary, so please use your best judgment (and/or consult a nutritionist) if relying on this nutritional information e.g. if you are following a specific diet.
This website will occasionally be compensated by brands or companies to feature their products in blog posts. This relationship will always be disclosed within the blog post. I only work with brands that I feel are a good fit for my blog and only promote products that I believe in.
