9 Healthy Foods That Won't Break The Bank

August 04, 2014 2 min read

One of the main concerns people have when making the switch from unhealthy to healthy food is the cost - processed food is so much cheaper unfortunately. It's incredibly irritating that eating healthy costs more than stuffing yourself with ready meals, but these foods are all healthy and won't break the bank. 1. Eggs
Eggs are one of the staples of my diet - I admit I'm a little addicted. They're packed with protein and quick and easy to prepare - however you like them. They fill you up and help to build lean muscle. 2. Bananas Bananas are great for boosting energy and filling you up between meals, and because they're totally portable you can take them anywhere to snack on. 3. Bell peppers Bell peppers can make any bland meal instantly look - and taste - much better. They're low in calories and packed with nutritional benefits - perfect! 4. Tuna Canned tuna is really affordable -- much cheaper than fresh fish, and great for mixing into salads. It's high in lean protein and contains barely any fat - but try to select tuna canned in water for the healthiest version. 5. 0% fat Greek yoghurt Some Greek yoghurts are expensive, but there are a number of great brands which are affordable and taste delicious! I eat Greek yoghurt as my treats as it's high in protein and is a great alternative to things like ice cream or whipped cream - team some with berries and you've got a refreshing summer treat. 6. Romaine lettuce Romaine lettuce is great for just about anything - it can obviously be chopped and included in a salad, or placed as the 'bed' for your meal, or even used as a replacement for wheat wraps when making fajita style meals. It's great for heart health and promotes healthy digestion. 7. Porridge oats Porridge is a great breakfast because it fills you up, and you can often buy a large amount of oats for a low price. They contain beta-glucans, which are carbohydrates that help your body to burn fat, rather than store it - a great way to start the day! 8. Carrots Carrots are obviously an affordable addition to your evening meal, but they're also great chopped as a snack to take with you wherever you go. Carrots are rich in beta carotene - an antioxidant - so they help to protect your body from free radicals. 9. Apples Multi-packs of apples are very affordable and are a great filling snack. They're linked with lowering your bad cholesterol levels and reducing the your risk of diabetes too!   For more articles like this, please subscribe to my blog.   Featured image credit: http://grannysvitalvittles.com/real-food-economics-101-real-food-vs-average-food-budgets/   Source: http://diet.allwomenstalk.com/top-foods-to-buy-if-youre-on-a-diet-and-low-on-money/7/

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 2-3 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.
