Please read this statement carefully before proceeding to access this site. Your use of this website (“Site” or "Website") indicates your agreement to abide by the Terms in effect ("Terms"). By using this website, you accept these Terms in full. If you disagree with any part of these Terms, please do not use this website.
1. This is a blog site ("Site", "Website") owned by VDL, LLC ("Site Owner", "Owner", "Company") and written by Vered DeLeeuw ("Author"). Information on the Site, including recipes and nutritional contents of recipes, may contain errors or inaccuracies; the Site Owner does not make any warranty as to the correctness or reliability of the site’s content. It is your responsibility to evaluate the accuracy of Website Content. Under no circumstances will Site Owner be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on any Website Content. Reliance on any information provided by this Site is solely at your own risk.
2. This Site is NOT intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Content should not be considered a substitute for professional medical expertise or treatment. The reader assumes full responsibility for consulting a qualified health professional regarding health conditions or concerns, and before starting a new diet or health program. Site Owner is not responsible for adverse reactions, effects, or consequences resulting from the use of any recipes or suggestions included in this Site.
All information and resources found on this Website are based on the Author's personal opinions unless otherwise noted. All information is intended to motivate readers to make their own nutrition decisions after consulting with their health care provider. The Site Owner encourages you to consult a doctor before making any health changes, especially any changes related to a specific diagnosis or condition. No information on this Site should be relied upon to determine diet, make a medical diagnosis, or determine treatment for a medical condition. The information on this Website is not intended to replace a one-on-one relationship with a qualified health care professional and is not intended as medical advice. No information on this Site should be used to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any disease or condition.
3. The nutritional information provided on this Site is approximate. It can vary depending on the exact ingredients/quantities used and may contain inaccuracies. It is your responsibility to evaluate the accuracy of all nutritional facts posted here, especially if you have a specific medical condition, in which case you should also consult with your healthcare professional before using any of the recipes.
4. Please always go to the actual recipe on the Site. Don't try to make this Site's recipe based on information from other sources. For example, Pinterest may display the list of ingredients and the time to make the recipe. But that is the TOTAL time, including preparation and rest time, not just the cooking time. So for example, if you tried to make this microwave cheesecake by only using the information on Pinterest, you could mistakenly think that the cooking time is 7 minutes. IT'S NOT, and microwaving for 7 minutes would end up very badly. Please always read the original recipe on this Site before attempting to make any of this Site's recipes.
5. Recipes may include links to recommended products. It is your responsibility to verify that those products are appropriate for your particular needs. For example, while most recipes on the Site are gluten-free, linked products are not necessarily gluten-free. You will have to verify that any products you use in our recipes, including products that we recommend and link to, are gluten-free.
6. Recipes are healthy in the sense that there has been an attempt to make them as tasty as possible while avoiding unhealthy ingredients. However, the Author of this Site is not a doctor nor a nutritionist. The information offered on the Site, including nutritional facts and the labeling of recipes as healthy, keto, low carb, gluten-free, paleo, etc. is to be used at your own discretion and only after you have independently verified its accuracy. If you have specific medical concerns, please consult with your doctor or with a nutritionist prior to using the recipes posted here.
7. The Site is currently labeled as featuring recipes that are keto, low carb, and gluten-free. However, many recipes do not qualify as all three. For example, some recipes are low-carb but not gluten-free, while some are gluten-free but not low-carb. Please check each recipe carefully to verify it is compatible with your nutritional needs, and calculate your own nutritional information before preparing it.
8. When using sugar-free sweeteners, the Author calculates their carbs as zero. However, you should always test for yourself and make sure that a particular recipe does not negatively impact you.
9. The information provided on this Site is not intended to replace consultation with a qualified medical professional. Please inform your physician of changes you make to your lifestyle or diet and discuss these with him or her. For specific questions or concerns about medical conditions that you may have, please contact your doctor.
10. Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness. It's your choice whether to prepare recipes such as soft-boiled eggs or medium-rare steak (among others), but please realize that there is risk involved.
11. Taste is subjective. The Site Owner is not liable for any food experience gone wrong. All recommendations included in this Site are based on personal preferences, and may or may not work for you.
12. Recipes taken from this Website and prepared are done so “at your own risk”. VDL, LLC is not responsible for any damage, physical or otherwise, resulting from the preparation of food using the instructions or recipes provided on this Website. You must take care to check the instructions provided and determine their value and any possible risk that may arise from the consumption of the ingredients listed in recipes on this Website.
