5 Yummy Uses For Common Kitchen Scraps

November 17, 2015 2 min read

When whipping up your favourite healthy meals, you may find you are left with a large amount of food scraps that you either throw away or toss in the compost bin. But hang on a second, there is a lot you can do with those scraps. That's right, take your waste and turn it into delicious food! Here are some ideas for 5 of the most common kitchen scraps:

1. Potato peels

If you are peeling your spuds for mashed potatoes or potato salad, keep the skins! In just a few steps, you can turn them into a tasty snack. Toss the peels with oil and seasonings, then roast at 400°F for 15 to 20 minutes.

2. Apple peels

Again, if you need to peel your apples to make a particular dish, hang on to the skins.  Roast the peels, tossed with a tiny bit of melted butter, cinnamon and sugar, at 400°F for 10 to 12 minutes, for a sweet, crispy apple chip! IMG_5723_edited-1024x680

3. Citrus peels

Thin skinned oranges like clementines, tangerines, or satsumas provide a perfect way to season stews or tomato sauces. Oven dry them at 200°F and you're good to go. Thicker skins, like those from grapefruit, are perfect for making candied fruit. [bctt tweet="5 Yummy Uses For Common Kitchen Scraps"]

4. Melon rinds

After eating delicious melon, most of us don't stop to think before tossing the rind. The rind is the white part that exists between the flesh of the melon and the outer skin. The rinds are a perfect sub for cucumbers in salads and gazpachos. You can even add it to curries!

5. Herb stems

Herb stems are perfect for making homemade stock, but you probably already knew that. But, we bet you didn't know that they are a perfect way to infuse oil and vinegar, and they can be added to pesto, chimichurri sauce, relish, tapenade, and stuffing.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.


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.
