9 Surprising Healthy Foods You Didn't Know You Could Grill!

June 11, 2015 2 min read

Mmm...nothing smells better than the BBQ fired up on a nice summer evening. But sticking to burgers and wieners can get boring (especially if you're a herbivore like me, your grill options can seem very limited). Here are 9 surprising summer favourites to try on your grill to keep your backyard party fun, fresh and exciting!

Mains:

 

1 - Oysters

Place them on the grill flat side up for about 5 minutes and you've got yourself a new summer favourite!

2 - Clams

Mix some clams in with your grilled oysters for a seafood themed backyard get-together. Brush the shells with olive oil and grill them up for about 2 minutes or until the shells open!

3 - Pizza

Brush your dough (either homemade or store bought) with olive oil and throw it on the grill for until marks appear. Take it off and top it with peppers, mushrooms, goat cheese, chicken or whatever you love and grill it another 3 minutes. Then dig in!

Sides:

 

1 - Avocado

This amazingly healthy food is totally grill-able! Half it, leave the skin on, take out the seed, coat with olive oil and grill it cut side down for 5 minutes. Top with Greek yogurt and salsa!

2 - Zucchini

Slice a market fresh zucchini into rounds, season it with olive oil and some basil and grill for 5 minutes on each side! Leave it on a little longer to get a nice crunchiness.

3 - Fries

Cut potatoes into wedges, toss with coconut or olive oil and grill for 10 minutes on each side. To amp up the healthiness factor, try sweet potatoes for a delicious alternative.

Fruity Treats:

1 - Watermelon

Never worry about watermelon slush getting on your new white sundress. Brush a slice with olive oil and grill it for 3 minutes on each side. Squirt on some lemon juice and top with Greek yogurt!

2 - Berries

Put a little lemon on your favourite berry mix (blueberries and raspberries are my favourite) and put the mix in aluminium foil (sealing the sides). Place on the grill for at medium for 10 minutes. Serve this treat with ice cream or frozen yogurt!

3 - Peaches

Half a peach, rub with butter, grill butter side down with the grill closed for about 4 minutes on each side. Top this succulently softened fruit with ice cream for a refreshing treat!

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.
