Cook Veggielicious is my personal blog where I share recipes, review products and restaurants and write about food related topics. In order to pay the bills I sometimes include affiliate links, for example to Amazon. If you buy something after clicking on one of these links I will received a small commission. The price to you remains exactly the same. I only link to products that I genuinely value. Affiliate links are usually marked on Cook Veggielicious by an asterix (*).
I may also work with brands and/or PR agencies to develop recipes, and/or promote and review products either on this blog or on my social media accounts. I may receive payment for this work but I will always be honest in my reviews and will only recommend a product if I believe my readers will like it as well. Blog posts are marked as “collaborative post” at the end of the blog post if they have been commissioned by a brand or PR agency.
Please note that any nutrition information provided is intended as a guide. Ingredients can vary between brands and in different countries.
I may occasionally change this policy and, if I do so, I will update this page. Please check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy was last updated on 10 May 2018.
