If You Want To Lose Weight, Take A Closer Look At This Magic Veggie!

October 06, 2015 2 min read

It may not be nearly as trendy as its cousin, kale, but this vegetable deserves a closer look, and a lot of love, especially if you are hoping to drop a few pounds. It is not a miracle food that can burn fat from your body but it is jam packed with so much goodness that it should play a major role in any healthy diet. Brassica vegetables, which include kale, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and cabbage, contain sulforaphane, an antioxidant that helps stimulate natural detoxifying enzymes which can prevent certain forms of cancer. Okay, so cabbage can't actually burn your fat away but it can be an asset to your diet in that it is an incredibly low calorie food. In fact, half a cup of cabbage contains only 17 calories! Dr. Jonny Bowden, Ph.D. and clinical nutrition specialist, says that a single cup of cabbage contains four grams of dietary fiber. Dietary fiber can help to stabilize your blood sugar levels and prevent overeating.   Cabbage (as well as the other brassica veggies) are a great source of vitamin C and contain vitamins A, B1, B2 and B6 which help to support your metabolism. These vitamins are also helpful in maintaining tissue health during your weight loss process. So, what do you look for in a cabbage? When cruising the produce aisles, look for a tightly packed, heavy bulb with the brightest colour you can find. You won't have to eat it right away, it will stay fresh in this whole form for up to two weeks. If you want to do some meal time prep work in advance, cabbage will stay fresh 5-7 days when chopped. Are you having terrible childhood flashbacks of a limp colourless vegetable that makes the entire house smell like sulphur? If boiled or overheated, cabbage loses its colour, and the nutrients release that horrible smell. So, the best, and most nutritious, way to eat cabbage is raw, steamed or lightly sautéed. Working cabbage into your meals isn't as hard as you might think. Try this cabbage soup recipe  or this fabulous slaw. Looking for something heartier? Try this Sriracha Beef Cabbage bowl! And don't forget to get a little cabbage in the morning! If you're adding spinach or kale to your smoothies, swap it out for cabbage. You'll be pleasantly surprised! Do you love cabbage?

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
