10 Kitchen Hacks For Real Foodies

December 22, 2013 2 min read

We all know that we should be eating real food that we've cooked in our own kitchen from scratch. But real food takes time, and let's face it... most of us are short on time. Don't let that be your excuse for not eating real food. Here are 10 kitchen hacks that will help you make real food real easy.
    1. Trying to slice cherry tomatoes or grapes can be a pain. Next time, place a handful on top of a Tupperware lid, then place another Tupperware lid on top and slice through the middle while gently holding the top lid in place. You'll have perfectly sliced grapes in no time!anigif_enhanced-buzz-25766-1377982915-4[1]
    2. If you have more fresh herbs than you can use before they go bad, and no spare ice cube trays, place the herbs and some olive oil in a Ziploc bag and freeze. Olive oil doesn't freeze very hard, so when you need some herbs and olive oil, break off however much you need and put the rest back in the freezer.
    3. Use an apple slicer to cut a potato into wedges. Toss with some olive oil, salt, and pepper then roast for easy homemade potato wedge fries
    4. Mangoes are not only delicious, they are good for you too, but a lot of people find them too difficult to slice up and eat. Follow these simple instructions and you're sure to include mangoes in your diet more often. enhanced-buzz-25797-1377979180-2[1]
    5. If you're looking to add healthy snacks to your to-go bag, how about dried fruit? With this tip, you don't even need to have a dehydrator at home to make your own. //cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0352/8841/files/enhanced-buzz-4315-1377980050-111.jpg
    6. Tired of fishing egg shells out of your eggs? Next time, try using another larger egg shell to do the work for you. Simply hold the larger piece of shell in the egg close to the stray shell and the larger shell will attract the stray piece like a magnet!
    7. Love cherries, but don't love the pits? It's easy to pit cherries with nothing more than a beer bottle and chop stick. Simply place the cherry on top of the bottle, and push the chop stick down through the center of the cherry and the pit will fall into the bottle.
    8. When a recipe calls for thinly sliced meat (like stir-fry), partially freeze the meat before slicing it. Then use a knife, food processor, or a cheese grater (the slicing side) for perfectly thin slices every time//cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0352/8841/files/enhanced-buzz-28687-1377978956-31.jpg
    9. Never have crunchy grains again! Use the photo below for perfectly cooked grains from now on.
    10. To clean fruit and veggies, rub with some baking soda and water. This will remove any remaining dirt or pesticides.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
