Smart and Sexy: 8 ways to Fall in Love with Roasted Vegetables

November 08, 2013 2 min read

I know what you are thinking. Sexy Vegetables?  Come on.  SEXY
  • These roasted vegetables are so good they seem decadent rather than healthy.
  • They are special-occasion dinner worthy (Cooking for a date? Christmas?  DONE.) 
  SMART
  • They can be eaten as-is, pureed for soup, baby food, or a healthy dip/spread, added to rice or pasta dishes, added to salads, etc.  If you make a large batch on Sunday, you could have vegetables for every meal for the WEEK.
  • The ingredients are super flexible.  Use whatever vegetables & seasoning you like.   (Carrots, parsnips, other squash, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers….anything you like roasted would be good.)
  • This is a budget friendly dish
  INGREDIENTS Yield – a lot.  10 cups?  ||  Prep Time = 20 min  ||  Cook Time = 1 hour

  2. Blend for a savory meal for baby, if you have one (or more)
  3. Puree with some broth (or water) to make a delicious soup.  Reserve some chopped veggies if you prefer a textured soup.

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.
