Happy Anniversary B&B!

Life is about taking chances – chances that force you so far out of your comfort zone. IMG_9086

It’s our 1st Anniversary!

When we took the leap of faith to launch Burpees & Bordeaux a year ago we didn’t know where it would go. We knew we wanted to share our journeys – the highs and the lows, we wanted to share solid research backed information, and we wanted to share our love for fitness (and wine). Little did we know we would connect with some of the most bad-ass women in the industry, grow not only as friends but also fitness professionals, and also expose our most vulnerable selves. We are so grateful for each and every one of you who read our blog and support us in our journey. A special shout out to our friends, our families, and significant others who support us day in and day out! Thank you to our friends at lululemon RF for letting us reach more individuals and all of the Tone It Up- Long Island girls who always come out to support us.

We love you all and can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for us!

Recipe of the Week: Energy Bites

oatmealball

Oatmeal balls, energy bites, globules of deliciousness, whatever you want to call them- they are amazing. My favorite thing about them is that they take less than 10 minutes to prepare and you can really alter any recipe to fit whatever ingredients you have around your house. Sometimes I add extra chocolate if I want them as a dessert or I add a scoop of protein powder

My Classic Oat Bite Recipe

1 cup dry rolled oats

1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

½ cup nut butter (I used natural, unsalted peanut butter)

½ cup ground flax seed

½ cup chocolate chips (optional, may substitute with raisins, seeds, or cranberries)

1/4 cup raw honey

1 tsp vanilla
