Recipe: Savory Egg Muffins

Hard boiled eggs again?! Meal prepped breakfast doesn’t have to be boring. Flavor up those eggs by turning them into little egg muffins that you can take on the go. Packed with sautéed spinach and savory chicken sausage, these eggs pack a punch!

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 chicken sausage
  • 3 Tbsp crumbled feta cheese
  • Salt & pepper or Everything But the Bagel seasoning

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350*F. In a medium pan, heat olive oil then add spinach and garlic. Sauté until wilted.
  2. In a separate pan, cook chicken sausage until browned on all sides. Chop into small pieces.
  3. Spray 6 muffin cups with non-stick spray. *There may be more or less depending on how full your cups are. You can also use more eggs to make more muffins.
  4. Evenly distribute spinach, sausage, and feta into muffin cups.
  5. Whisk eggs in a separate bowl, mix in S&P then pour evenly into muffin pan.
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes then remove from oven and let cool for 3-5 minutes before removing from pan.

This recipe can even be used as a guideline to make your own creations – maybe try egg whites or switch up the veggies. Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Recipe: Chicken & Pineapple Cauliflower Fried Rice

Cauliflower “rice” is a great substitute for making lower carb dishes! This healthier version of fried rice has plenty of veggies and can easily be made into a vegetarian dish, too.

Serves: 4

Total Time: 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets OR Trader Joe’s fresh riced cauliflower (16 oz bag)
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 2 large eggs, whisked
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1/2 sweet onion, diced
  • 1 Tablespoon + 1 tsp minced garlic, divided
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup baby broccoli
  • 6 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Slice chicken breast into chunks, marinate in 3 Tbsp soy sauce and 1 tsp minced garlic for 20-30 minutes, in the meantime chop your vegetables
  2. Add the cauliflower florets to a food processor and pulse just until the cauliflower resembles rice. (Don’t overprocess or it will be mushy.) Set the cauliflower rice aside OR use Trader Joe’s pre-riced cauliflower
  3. Heat a large nonstick sauté pan over medium-low heat. Coat it lightly with cooking spray then add the eggs and cook until scrambled. Remove the eggs to a plate then add the chicken, until fully cooked ~8 minutes. Set chicken aside.
  4. Add the sesame oil and olive oil to the pan and let it heat for 1 minute. Add the diced onion and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, until the onion is translucent, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the cauliflower rice, peppers, broccoli, soy sauce, salt and pepper (to taste) to the pan and cook, stirring, until the cauliflower softens, about 5 minutes. Return the scrambled eggs and chicken to the pan then add the diced pineapple and cook, stirring, for 3 more minutes.
  6. Enjoy!!

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: Cauliflower Pizza

I have tried a couple different recipes and they have either been extremely labor intensive or turned out to be a sloppy mess! I was finally victorious with this recipe and you can switch up the toppings with whatever you like – I happen to be a pepperoni and pineapple girl 🙂
Ingredients
  • 28-32 ounces cauliflower rice (you can also place cauliflower florets in food processor)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 ounces chèvre goat cheese
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • Optional: 1 tsp pizza Flavor God seasoning

Toppings

  • Whatever you like! We did pizza sauce, fresh mozzarella, pineapple, pepperoni, red onion, red pepper, parmesan, and pepper flakes.
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Steam the cauliflower rice. I typically buy the ones that you can steam directly in the bag. Once cauliflower is cooked, place in a towel and squeeze all of the liquid out.
  3. Place the cauliflower pulp in a mixing bowl and add in the egg, goat cheese, oregano, garlic powder, and sea salt, and pizza seasoning. Mix well.
  4. Once mixed, place the mixture onto the baking sheet. Using your hands, press the mixture until it is spread out evenly with no thin patches, about 1/3 inch high.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes and the top begins to brown.  Then carefully flip the crust over and bake for another ı0 minutes.
  6. Once the crust is ready, add your favorite pizza sauce and toppings and then bake for another ı0 minutes at 400ºF.
  7. Enjoy!

Recipe of the Week: Simple Turkey Chili

Confession: I can cook, but I don’t. I’ll be honest, most of the time I am grilling chicken and vegetables. But if it only requires one pot- sign me up! Here’s my recipe for simple turkey chili- I spiced it up with fire roasted tomatoes and chili powder. If you want more heat, toss in chopped jalapenos! Less heat? Regular diced tomatoes will cool it off 🙂

  • 1 can red kidney beans (rinsed & drained)

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • Dash of salt (to taste)
  • Shredded cheese (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, heat olive oil. Then add ground turkey and cook through.
  2. Mix in beans, tomatoes, and spices.
  3. Allow to cook for 10 minutes until heated. *I let mine simmer for an hour so all the flavors combined*
