Kicking Carbs uses affiliate links like Amazon as a source of income. When you click on the links and then buy products the blog gets a percentage of the sale from the seller. This does not have an effect on your cost. Some posts are sponsored by advertisers/companies. These posts will always include full disclosure and be clearly labeled as sponsored. Some items that are reviewed are given to me by the company. This will always be noted. Restless Chipotle is a full disclosure blog – nothing hidden, ever. I promise.
