Throughout my website and posts, you may see links to products, these are affiliate links. When you click on the link, it will take you to the product seller's page and if you decide to purchase the product, I would get a small commission from that sale. It does not affect the price that you pay.
I always do my best to give you quality links and places to purchase from, however, make sure to do your own research before making any purchases. I can not control the nature of the sale or if you get a bad product via my link and it is out of my hands at that point.
I will never intentionally send you to a bad seller. If you purchase an item via my affiliate links and the product you receive is wrong or damaged, etc, you will have to take that issue to Amazon via the refund process or help center.
Finally, while I am so happy that you are here and seemingly interested in making a change in your lifestyle or diet, I am not a medical professional, nutritionist or registered to give advice on what foods are appropriate for you.
