The I-Can't-Cook-Sh*t-But-I-Can-Make-This... Superfood Meal

December 11, 2013 2 min read

You just got home from a never ending day and you're strung out, exhausted and ready to eat.  It's time to "make dinner" for yourself and you want. food. NOW. wtf This is the point where you throw open the utensil drawer to grab the can opener. Paradoxically, you're health conscious. You drink water, work out, try to make healthy choices but often you just want and need convenience. Unfortunately the convenient meals you have on hand, or have access to, are the worst of the worst. Packed full of empty calories while void of any nutritional value. The meal may have been tasty even fun, but from the preparation to the time your bowl was empty took a mere ten minutes. You rode the roller coaster up the hill as your blood sugar spiked and now it's plummeting back down the other side. Since the meal hardly supplied your body with anything it could actually use to repair and build itself, the rest of the evening involves plenty of grazing. A handful of this, a scoop of that, a glass of this, a bowl of that. Your vessels is making a last ditch effort to get enough of what it needs to function optimally. (The body requires good sources of fats, proteins, carbohydrates, hydration, micronutrients and the like to run at peak performance.) If you could relate to this anecdote, you need to try the following meal. It's simple (my boyfriend can make it). It's delicious (my boyfriend will eat it). It's nutritious (my boyfriend feels satiated after he eats it). And in all honestly this meal has transformed my way of life. It's a STAPLE. Here goes... The Legendary Quinoa Bowl
  •  In a pot, bowl some water.
  • Pour in quinoa- quinoa will absorb water and double in size.
  • Meanwhile, chop some veggies (this includes garlic, onion and ginger)
  • Add garlic, onion and ginger to the quinoa in the pot when it's about 3/4 done. Stir in. Reduce heat to med-low.
  • Then add other veggies on top of that: broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, red pepper, carrots, beets... your choice.
  • Let veggies steam under a lid with heat turned low-ish.
Once finished spoon contents into a bowl.
  • Drizzle liberally with olive oil or perhaps coconut oil.
  • Add some salt, pepper, spices of your choice. Perhaps some pumpkin seeds or pine nuts.
And that's it! Roughly 15 minutes for a steaming, satisfying, nourishing bowl of goodness. [caption id="attachment_33005" align="alignnone" width="300"]Make it your staple! Make it your staple![/caption] This meal will support your training, your mood, your weight, your work life and your love life by supplying the body with exactly what it's looking for. And I swear - it's so good! For a quality life, eat quality meals. Play with it, make it or a variation of this, your go-to staple. Try it out and let me know how it went! Remember, if you want your body to operate at it's best put premium in your tank! And by tank, I mean stomach. I encourage bicycling or public transit. :) [caption id="attachment_33006" align="alignnone" width="300"]Processed foods are akin to gunky, low grade fuel while organic, whole foods are clean burning premium.

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.
