August 20, 2015 2 min read

We tend to grocery shop at the beginning of the week with healthy intentions in mind. We opt for fresh and organic produce that will benefit our bodies in a multitude of ways. But as the week unfolds, we find ourselves buried deep in work or other commitments that take us away from spending time to eat what we bought. And when the weekend arrives and we have a minute to spare, we notice the majority of our expensive foods are close to going bad! But before you give up on the good stuff and throw it all out, try these tips to save yourself a premature trip to the grocery store and utilize your almost spoiled produce. zucchini 1. Grate your zucchini or carrots. There are so many things you can do with grated veggies like zucchini and carrots. Sprinkle them atop your salad, sauté them in your veggie stir-fry, or even mix with an egg and flour to make a tasty batter for making fritters. 2. Juice your leafy greens. They can go bad quickly, but before they turn into a rotten mush, throw them in the juicer for a nutritious and filling midday snack. 3. Wrap your asparagus. When this vegetable starts to get soft, simply sauté it up and incorporate into your veggie wrap or even as a filling for your taco. 4. Ferment your green beans. May seem strange, but it's really not that out of the ordinary! Make a fermented pickle by chopping them into even, one-inch pieces and stuffing them into a wide-mouth pint jar. Make sure to leave about 2 inches at the top. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt to 2 cups filtered water to create a brine for covering the beans.

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.
