Salad Bar Without The Price Hike

November 30, 2014 2 min read

As I’ve stated many times, my main reason for wanting to be rich is because of my Whole Foods addiction. I may not be any closer to being fabulously wealthy, but I can eat at the Whole Foods salad bar without breaking the bank – as long as I’m smart about it. Here are five tips so that you too can take advantage of the salad bar – without the price hike.
  1. Pick light items – and I don’t mean light health wise, I mean actually physically lacking in mass. For example, sub in raisins instead of grapes, they’re basically the same thing, but without the water weight. Add in edamame, it’s one of the lightest ways to consume protein, especially compared to a heavy hard boiled egg. Walnuts are one of the lightest nuts, and nuts in general are lighter than chickpeas. A creamy dressing will be heavier than olive oil and balsamic vinegar (not to mention more fatty).
  2. Use a smaller container – you don’t need a large container, the smaller containers hold a surprising amount of food, and you will most likely end up eating less than you would otherwise, but more than enough to fill you up.
  3. Plan ahead – I like to do a loop of the salad bar at least once before putting anything in my container. This way you end up with exactly what you want instead of a random assortment of whatever caught your eye on your first g-round.
  4. Forbidden fruit – fruit’s heavy. It just is. If you really want fruit in your salad then buy a small pre-packaged fruit salad, or get an apple or avocado and chop it up with a plastic knife.
  5. Size matters– always go for shredded or thinly sliced veggies rather than chunks. It will be lighter, and easier to spread the flavour out among the entire salad.

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 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.
