Guest Post Guidelines

The Healthy Dish will NO longer be accepting guest post submissions. — Thank you for visiting!



Hey there! Thank you for visiting this site! Yes, The Healthy Dish loves hearing from you, though this is my personal food and health journey — from the eyes of a journalist and food photographer (me), and a very curious person (me again :-). This is where I write about my experiences, usually whenever I have free time, many times late at night. This is where I share with family, friends and all those interested in food and what I’m doing with it. As a journalist, I do come across interesting things every day. Sharing on this site is my labor of love to humanity. I don’t get paid for doing it. Not yet. But I do pay for keeping this site up and running. I do like to share this site with contributing writers who will write or express their views on relevant food and health topics or like to share a personal recipe. Remember you can always contribute below each article in the comment area or can contribute an article or your personal cooking movies. To be considered as a guest contributing writer, please read all and follow guidelines below before submitting. By submitting your comments, articles, photos and other materials you are agreeing with guidelines below (only your original work, articles, art and photos can be submitted). I love reading about people’s health and personal journey’s.

© Noticed: I am more than flattered—I am thrilled when someone shares my links or information found here. But the information that you find here takes me much time and effort to research, and the recipes take me weeks–sometimes months or even years to formulate. With this in mind since all material on this website is copyrighted to Margarita Persico and, unless otherwise stated. If you would like to copy one (1) paragraph, you may, but please link back and credit the author. If you like to use a photograph, information or idea derived from here, I’d be flattered, but you need to ask for permission first. And always credit the author: Margarita Persico, and provide a link back to this website: Thank you for being fair and sharing the love and passion for delicious and healthy living.
