Let’s be clear.

1. My goal at bring joy is to provide inspiration for good living through sharing vegan & gluten-free recipes, tips for frugal & debt-free living, as well as sharing my life with my readers.

2. I only promote products that I can 100% endorse.

3. It’s amazing how much time & money go into running a daily blog (especially in the midst of being a homemaker, wife, & mother to five kids!). Because of this, I feel it crucial to be compensated financially. This is a blog is a business for me & as such, I accept advertising & participate in various affiliate programs which provide income, as well as sale my own information products (ebooks).

4. I realize my readers have placed a great deal of trust in me, & I am honored by that. I respect & value my reader’s trust & know that it is only by being transparent & forthright that I will continue to have an honest relationship with my readers.


What is an affiliate link/referral link?

Sometimes I mention that a link is an affiliate link. This means that sometimes I will recommend a product or service & include a clickable link.

If you click through an affiliate link to a third party website & make a purchase for a product or service, I will get a referral commission. Of course, this is at no extra cost to you but it does provide me with financial support so I can keep bringing you joy!

I am absolutely grateful for your support in this way.


Nutritional Information, Weight Loss Claims, & Gluten-Free Labels

I use nutrition calculation software to determine the nutritional information for each one of my recipes. I don’t guarantee the accuracy of the information, though I do my very best to calculate the correct ingredients and measurements in order to ensure the closest, most accurate nutritional numbers. Ultimately though, this is an imprecise procedure and nutritional information (including calories per serving and serving size) are not guaranteed to be 100% accurate.

I do not claim that any one recipe or recipes, exercise or exercises, or any other suggestion from my blog or ebooks will cause weight loss. I provide these recipes and information on weight loss for informational purposes only.

I am not a doctor, registered dietitian, or other certified medical professional. I cannot treat, diagnose, or prescribe. For any changes to diet or exercise, consult your doctor.

I do my best to provide naturally gluten-free recipes. Some of my older recipes use gluten-containing ingredients. Most recipes use gluten-free flours. If you have Celiac’s disease it is your responsibility to ensure that the ingredients you use are certified gluten-free.
