Maggots for Dinner

November 23, 2013 2 min read

Did you know that in Nicaragua, cheese with maggots in it is a delicacy? People actually eat these disgusting creatures!
Uhhh, I think not!
Cooking italian for my family, I opened up a can of tomatoes. To my surprise, I opened up a can of worms! Maggots to be exact.  Yes, maggots came crawling out of the can. I seriously almost threw up. I was awful! I grabbed the can and threw it outside. This experience got me thinking, "What else could be in these cans that I so often open up and dump into pots?" What am I eating? What am I feeding my children?  Like most Americans, I assume that because a can is air tight, it is safe.  Obviously, whatever is getting into the cans has made its way there before the can is sealed - probably in a huge factory. Yikes!
Although I am not a huge gardner, I have had some success with gardening in the past.  Certainly, when I grow my own tomatoes, I can wash them and throw them into a pot, confident that there are no aged maggots in the sauce! I love pulling peppers off the vine and tossing them into the food processor to make pepper relish (which my hubby loves). I love growing my own food. I want to get better at it, and even learn how to can. Wanna commit to doing this with me?  If the idea of gardening is too much for you to think about right now, consider visiting your local farmers market once a week. At the very least, we should look for recipes that use fresh ingredients when preparing our meals. That way, we won't ever have to worry about having maggots for dinner!
Here is a helpful website to find your local farmers market. Eat local-support a farmer!
Cheers!

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.

Clothing

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.
