Disclaimer/Terms of Use

Lick Your Plate is a Blog created to share my personal journey to better health. Everyone’s individual journey is different. Before starting any new diet or exercise routine you should consult your physician. Topics of this blog will include nutrition, weight loss, and exercise. I do not promise similar weight loss results or health benefits by following this plan. I am a regular person sharing my journey with the world and I am not a Doctor, nutritionist, or personal trainer.

At any time I reserve the right to remove any comment or post without explanation. Please be kind and courteous, lets spread the love!

I only endorse products that I love and truly believe in. I will only accept products or gifts from companies who align with our lifestyle and purpose of this blog. However, I do not share the same views and opinions of the companies I associate with and my reviews of their products are my own honest thoughts and opinions. If you are a company and would like to work with me please send an email to lauren.lickyourplate@gmail.com so we can chat.
