If you’re looking for seriously nutrient packed energy to prep for or recover from an intense workout  — or just a super delicious (and healthy) side dish to wow the gustorial and visual senses of friends and family, then you’ve got to try our Bloody Mashed potato recipe. Made with just a handful of ingredients, this recipe brings to bear the manyperks of potatoes (high in vitamin C, potassium, a good source of B6, and rich in magnesium, fibre and antioxidants) with the insane health benefits of beets.


Beetshave been shown to improve blood pressure, support brain and heart health, fight inflammation, improve athletic performance, and are a great source of free-radical fighting (and chronic disease fighting) antioxidants. What's more,studies show that beets can help you lose weight. In addition to being low in calories and fat, beets are also relativelyhigh in fibre andprotein, which can contribute to feeling fuller, longer and eating less extraneous calories.  


Ready to dive in to this sumptuous side dish?

Here’s what you’ll need:

(Makes 4 servings)

  • 4 large potatoes (can swap in sweet potatoes in part or fully for a lower GI option)
  • 3 medium beets
  • ¼ cup organic grass fed butter
  • ½ cup milk (dairy, nut or soy)
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • Salt + pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Place beets (with skin) in a medium saucepan with enough water to cover them. Add 1 tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice to keep beets from bleeding.
  2. Boil for around 30 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Drain water, rinse with cold water and then allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Then, peel the skin with your hands. It will be easy to do.
  4. Now, the potatoes. Cut them into quarters. You can boil them at the same time as your beets, or start them while your beets cool. We love leaving the skin on our potatoes to really get a healthy dose of fiber  — just be sure to wash them well, first. Boil the potatoes for around 20 minutes, or until tender.
  5. Drain water. Add peeled, boiled beets and boiled potatoes to same pot. Add butter, milk, garlic and salt and pepper. Mash well.

Enjoy!

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.
