Are You Still Cooking With Olive Oil? Read this! (Part 2)

June 30, 2015 2 min read

Sunflower, safflower, olive, soybean and canola oil were ALL exposed to light, oxygen and heat before they're even bottled. The processing and refinement includes the application of all of the harmful elements which cause oxidation and therefore rancid before you even buy it! Thats right, every single bottle of oil that you see on grocery store shelves is toxic unless you go above and beyond what is so readily available and take your health into your own hands. So, forget about ruining it when cooking… you can’t even get the intended health benefit of olive oil straight from the bottle!     olive-oil  What is the solution? We need to remove the old, damaged, toxic oil from our diets (and supplements) and replace them with fresh, clean and nutrient dense oils that promote optimal health. My Tips for Buying, Storing and Using Oils Safely:
  • Learn to cook with water instead of oil to ensure food safety.
  • Switch to raw, organic coconut oil for most of your cooking where you cannot use water.
  • Buy ONLY cold-pressed, unrefined oils. These are hard to find at conventional grocery stores so look at your local health food store.
  • Buy and store your oil in small dark bottles. It is common for the oil to go rancid before you get to the bottom of the bottle, so a smaller bottle will help to eliminate this problem
  • Keep the oils in a temperature stable cupboard (not above or near the oven) and if there is room, in the fridge.
  • Be sure to secure the lid immediately after use, do not use the pour spouts on the top of the bottle.
  • Add healthful, nutrient dense, safe oils to your food AFTER cooking, when the temperature has come down some.
  • Use olive oil in cold applications only, ie: salad dressings, on top of soup, pasta or pizza dishes.
  • If you want to know if your olive oil is safe or not, put it in the fridge, it will harden and form a solid. Then you'll know it hasn’t been refined and is therefore, safe to consume!

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.


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.
