Celebrate National Carrot Cake Day With This Healthy Recipe

February 03, 2017 2 min read

Vegetables are amazingly nutritious and they make up a vital part of any healthy diet.  But do you know what takes vegetables from a sometimes boring but necessary part of your meal to something you can't wait to devour? Putting them cake! Cakes, a baked treat made from a combination of flour, sugar, honey, and eggs, have been around for centuries. Carrot cake appears to be a healthier cake that evolved out of necessity in the Middle Ages. During this time period, sweeteners like sugar were expensive and hard to find so crafty bakers began using sweet tasting vegetables to make their cakes palatable. Let's be honest, it's a good thing they did or else February 3rd would never have become National Carrot Cake Day! Carrots boost the benefits of this dessert in a big way! Carrots are high in soluble fiber, which can help reduce bad LDL cholesterol levels and beta carotene which not only promotes good vision but can be converted to vitamin A in the body, helping to keep your skin healthy. Carrots also have an alkalizing effect which prevents acidosis, reduces inflammation and helps you to avoid the overgrowth of yeast and bad bacteria (among other things!). So today, take a moment, reward yourself and celebrate National Carrot Cake Day by whipping up this naturally sweetened, deliciously fabulous cake! original-carrotcakedayinfo If cake ain't exactly your thing, you can still get your carrot cake fix. There is an absolutely scrumptious Carrot Cake Smoothie recipe in the BodyRock Smoothie Book. Check it out, this book will satisfy your sweet tooth AND all of your smoothie-based nutrition needs! It's a real game changer!

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.

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.
