Save a Bird, Stuff a Squash

October 23, 2014 2 min read

We know we should be thankful year-round for all the things that make our lives great. Maybe it's a vacation you got to take. Maybe it's a promotion at work. Or maybe it's simply quiet moments with family and friends. This year, I'm thankful for fresh, seasonal fall foods. It's chestnut season, apple season, and pumpkin season all at once! And let's not forget the abundance of squashes. Try something new this season. Instead of the usual acorn or butternut squash, try spaghetti or sunburst. Or try your hand at using pumpkin for eating instead of carving. Better yet, instead of getting weighed down by bread soaked in turkey fat (aka "stuffing"), try stuffing a squash with fall legumes and veggies for a healthy alternative. There's nothing like blending the flavours of fall into one awesome dish to impress the family. Here are some great ideas for stuffed squash that will have mom asking you for the recipe: imageSouthwestern Stuffed Spaghetti Squash The Comfort of Cooking's spaghetti squash recipe combines hot and bell peppers, spices, beans, corn, cilantro and cheese for a savoury southwest flavour.     imageRice and Ricotta Stuffed Butternut Squash In this recipe from Tasteofhome.com, the rice, curry and mango chutney makes for a spicy change from your regular sugar and butter recipe.     imageQuinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash Quinoa, walnut, kale. This stuffed acorn squash from eatingappalachia.com is packed with vitamins.     imageTwice-Baked Mushroom-Stuffed Butternut Squash The parmesan and mushroom in this 12Tomatoes.com recipe make it reminiscent of a creamy pasta - and just as rich.   image Roasted Acorn Squash With Wild Rice and Pistachio Stuffing This recipe from A Couple Cooks is creative and visually appealing. The kale, feta, pistachios and rice would make a great salad on their own, but stuffing them in acorn squash makes them that much better.       Featured image from acouplecooks.com

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.
