‘Clean Eating’ Fried Rice

October 25, 2013 3 min read

Hi BodyRockers, This is a quick & tasty meal to make in a flash. Fried rice is always a delicious and filling dish.. but not always the healthiest. Most often, it is overloaded with sodium, high in fat and calories, and made with refined white rice.. booooo! This fried rice recipe is adapted from the Clean Eating Magazine. This magazine is always a great read. Recently a friend, who is also a Clean Eating fan, recommended a new edition that is full of awesome healthy meals! I hit the stands and picked it up that day! What makes this version of fried rice so great is that it is made with brown rice. Taking out the the main ingredient (white rice) and swapping it for it’s unrefined version greatly increases the nutritional value of the dish. . IMGP5434-398x600 . White rice, or any refined carbohydrate for that matter is one thing, and one thing only…EMPTY CALORIES!! Take a whole grain of rice: it is made up of different layers, the core, the germ and the bran. The germ and bran layers contain most of the fiber, vitamins, and minerals in the rice. During the refining process the germ and bran are removed stripping these healthy layers and leaving you with a sad, lonely, little core. The body does not have to work to break down and digest the bran and germ, so the core is absorbed and digested quickly (also why white rice cooks much faster than brown), which can cause a spike in blood sugar levels. However, the calories in refined and unrefined rice are the same, yet the unrefined version keeps you full longer, takes longer to break down (no spike in blood sugars), and contains more nutrients! Yay!! This recipe is full of nutritious vegetables, as well as eggs and edamame beans, which both add vegetarian protein to the dish! The sodium is also kept to a minimum with the use of low-sodium soy sauce and the sesame oil and seeds add in a dose of calcium, zinc, and magnesium! Now, with this recipe, Fried Rice can actually be a well rounded, delicious AND healthy Lifestyle !

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.
