Taking the Bad Out of Baking (Part 2)

April 17, 2015 2 min read

Baked goods can taste great and be healthy too!

3- Butter Not suitable for those who have dairy intolerances. But don’t fall for the dairy-free margarines on the market, they normally contain GMO soy and unhealthy, processed fats. I’ve got substitutes that are much better than butter! Butter is usually used for moisture and salt in recipes, but this can easily be replaced with:
  • Raw, Organic coconut oil (melted state).
  • Ripe, Mashed Avocado.
  • Unsweetened, Apple Sauce.
Note: If the recipe depends on some of the salt from the butter, just add a pinch of high quality sea salt! 4- Sweetners White sugar is so yesterday! It is time to clean out your pantry of everything refined or ‘white’. There are much better alternatives that won’t be as harsh on your system. When I am looking to replace sugar, there are a few different options that will vary based on the other flavours in recipe. If the recipe calls for a syrup or liquid sugar like molasses, corn syrup etc. Use:1600993_256713247839652_460606243_n
  • Pitted dates soaked in a few tablespoons of warm water then blended
  • Coconut Nectar
  • Maple Syrup
  • Apple Sauce or Apple Butter, if you only need a mild sweetness.
  • Mashed, Ripe Banana
If the recipe calls for a dry sweetner you can use:
  • Coconut Sugar
  • Date sugar
  • Lakanto
  Note: You can use some of the wet ingredients as dry, but if you do be sure to make up for it by adding slightly less of another liquid, like water. If the recipe calls for Chocolate Chips try Fair-trade, Organic Cacao Nibs! 5- Oil Most of us probably do not realize that the oils that we buy at the grocery store in big bottles have been processed with heat and exposed to light and air. This is a recipe for disaster when it comes to oils. Oils are very fragile and can do bad when exposed to those elements. Therefore, instead of using rancid (and most likely genetically modified) oils in our recipes we can use foods that will do the same thing in the oven without the risk. Try replacing cups of oil with:
  • Unsweetened Apple Sauce
  • Grated Zucchini
  • Raw Organic Coconut Oil (in its melted state)

Happy Healthy Baking!

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.


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.
