Weekend Expeditions for Good Food

August 08, 2013 2 min read

Living in a smaller city can definitely have its perks (especially for a girl who grew up in a small farming community) however when it comes to going out for dinner there aren't many options.  This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting a good friend of mine in Toronto. During my visit we went out to a couple restaurants and I was pleasantly overwhelmed with all of the options catering to my diet. Trying to find restaurants in London that provide gluten free menu options - that weren't only salads with no dressing - narrows my choices down to 3 or 4 restaurants. While in Toronto I didn't even have to ask for a gluten free menu or allergen guide, the gluten free options were already included in the menu and many of the dishes could be made gluten free. The first restaurant we went to was King's Cafe, a vegetarian specialty food restaurant. For dinner I had the gluten free version of Low Han Chai Choi Mien - a noodle dish with baby corn, black fungus, mushrooms, seasonal vegetables and tofu. The meal was absolutely delicious and the portion size was huge! I find in a lot of restaurants here there is little knowledge of what actually goes into the food being made which results in limited menu options for myself. I really appreciated how everything was already laid out on the menu to show what could be made gluten free and what already was gluten free. blog0216_KingsCafe For breakfast the next morning we went out to Fresh, an amazing vegan restaurant which is sure to satisfy any meat-lover. I had their Breakfast Platter which consisted of 2 blueberry pancakes (all of their pancakes are made gluten free), tempeh bacon, and a delicious tofu scramble. Fresh also offers numerous entrees, soups, juices (freshly made) and a vast array of desserts and goodies. This was definitely one of the best breakfasts I've ever had - now if only I could learn to make gluten free pancakes so perfectly...Pancake-platter Toronto has a lot to offer when it comes to food. Having options that cater to gluten free, vegetarian, vegan and omnivore diets are definitely not far and few between. Hopefully smaller cities will catch on that there is more to alternative diets than salad.  Photos from: http://www.notjustgranola.ca/sites/default/files/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Pancake-platter.jpg http://bagelhot.blogspot.ca/2005_09_01_archive.html

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.
