A (Healthy) Summer Salad Must Try

August 17, 2015 2 min read

Do you have a love for mozzarella covered tomato basil salad? Some restaurants list this appetizer next to the fried ravioli. At your local neighbourhood pizza shop may even list this as a combo. During the winter when the fresh tomatoes tend to be as hard to come by as a string bikini, it can be an excuse to load the tomatoes up with extra cheese. Who doesn’t love cheese, right? However, there is something healthier for you that still tastes amazing! During the season when you can get the brightest tomatoes, you will enjoy this. These tomatoes are in season right now, so get them while you can. Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil to add some fat. Add some vinegar and lemon juice for a little “kick” and some basil to make it taste fresh. You can eat these tomatoes as an appetizer or pair them up with fish or chicken for a whole meal. No cheese will be needed.   The Recipe: Heirloom Tomatoes, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Basil 1 Cup- Extra Virgin Oil 1 ½ lb. Heirloom Tomatoes and cut to bite size portions 3 TSP – Kosher Salt 1 Lemon for some Zest 1 ½ Cup – Basil Leaves 1 ½ TSP. Fresh Ground Black Pepper ¼ Cup – Red Wine Vinegar Directions: Step 1 – Mix the tomatoes in a large bowl, along with 1 tp. of pepper, 2 tsp. of salt, and red wine vinegar, and ½ cup of olive oil. Cover and leave in room temperature for approximately 20 minutes. Step 2 – In a food processor or blender, add pepper, the remaining salt, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, and basil. Step 3 – To finally serve, start by pouring the basil puree in the middle of the bowl, Place mixture of tomato on top. Put the cooked fish over the tomatoes, and add more tomatoes. This should make 4 servings. Do you have a healthy summer recipe you want us to share? Send it in! Source: Mens Health

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.
