Navigating ADHD as an entrepreneur and CBD with Angie Lee

Here’s more about Angie and her background:

Angie Lee is a multihyphenate hypewoman, comedy creator, keynote speaker, Forbes Top 100 podcaster & co-founder of Soul CBD & Wellness. As a college and corporate dropout with ADHD, Angie has always known that she wasn’t born to fit into a box or follow the rules. She spent her young adult years seeking a productive outlet for all her creative energy, starting with the blog she launched from her dorm room at the age of 19 circa 2010. After much trial and error and a handful of business flops—including her healthy meal delivery service in Chicago—Angie leveraged her gregarious personality to build a community of hundreds of thousands of ambitious women that are making friends with fear & making money doing what they love.

Hi friends! How are you? I hope you’re enjoying the morning so far! I’m here working on blog content for the day – I try to batch my content days- and looking forward to an afternoon hike. For today’s post, I wanted to chat a bit about home gym ideas and some of my favorite staples.

In today’s fast-paced world, making time for the gym isn’t always easy.

If you’re busy and/or have kids, removing the transportation time and possible need for childcare can make a HUGE difference. It’s not about breaking the bank; it’s about finding the right equipment and setup that works for you and your space.

Fajita Quesadilla

The sizzle of perfectly seasoned fajita vegetables is snugly under wraps with oodles of gooey cheese in this golden, crispy Fajita Quesadilla.

Fajita Quesadilla

Each bite of these quesadillas is a burst of bold flavors. The smoky char of sautéed peppers and onions is balanced with the creamy flavor of melted, freshly shredded cheese.

And for toppings, you can finish your fajita quesadilla with a fiery tomato salsa, a dollop of sour cream, or guacamole. Or, if you’re like my niece… more cheese.

I typically have bell peppers of every color on hand, so using a mixture of colors makes this vegetable quesadilla a little bit more fun for me. But, feel free to use whichever color pepper you have on hand.

If you’d like to make these a little bit spicier, throw in some fresh chopped jalapeno. At my table, you can’t go wrong adding in a bit of that lingering heat.

My boys would never let me live it down if I didn’t note that you can easily add the meat of your choice to this recipe. Grilled chicken, pulled pork, and tender steak bites keep my meat lovers quite happy.

What is Spenga (and would I recommend trying it)?

Sharing a review of Spenga and if I’d recommend adding it into your fitness routine. 

Hiii! How are ya? I hope you’re having a lovely day so far. I’m headed to a barre class and looking forward to family dinner later tonight.

For today’s post, I wanted to talk a bit about Spenga! I heard about it years ago, and it was always in the back of my mind as a format I wanted to try. Recently a friend moved back to Tucson – we went to middle school together! – and Spenga is her workout studio of choice. She invited me to join her for a class, so I was pumped to finally give it a try. I have to say, it exceeded my expectations and I can’t wait to go again.

What is Spenga (and would I recommend trying it)?

What is Spenga?

Spenga, short for Spin, Strength, Yoga, is an innovative fitness concept that has been rapidly gaining popularity in recent years. It’s a group fitness program designed to offer a complete workout in a single session, providing the benefits of cardio, strength training, and flexibility work.

The Spenga Concept: Why Was It Created?

Spenga was created with the aim of offering a time-efficient, effective, and enjoyable workout routine that maximizes the benefits of different types of exercises without overloading on any one. The concept was developed to cater to individuals who may not have the time or inclination to participate in multiple types of classes or visit multiple facilities to meet their fitness goals.

What Does a Spenga Class Look Like?

A typical Spenga class is a 60-minute session that is divided into three equal parts:

Spin:

The workout begins with a high-energy spin cycling session. This part focuses on improving cardiovascular endurance, boosting metabolism, and burning calories. This component included lots of sprints and heavy hill climb; it went by so quickly!

Strength:

The spin is followed by a strength training circuit using a variety of equipment like dumbbells, kettlebells, resistance bands, and bodyweight exercises. This segment is designed to build muscle strength, improve bone density, and enhance overall functional fitness. Our particular workout had a combination of functional and compound movements, like renegade rows, pushups, and biceps curl to press.

The Flakiest Savory Beef Pot Pie

The Flakiest Savory Beef Pot Pie

Savory indulgent beef pot pie that is loaded with vegetables and topped with flaky, golden puff pastry! It’s pure comfort food!

I mean, it was bound to happen. Our readers are in love with our chicken pot pie, and in fact it’s one of the most popular recipes on our site. But with all of you requesting a few more beef recipes I couldn’t resist a savory beef pot pie recipe. Is it possible to have too many pot pies?

I think not!

What started out one way ended up an entirely different way and I’m ridiculously pleased with the results. And no one is happier than Cade, he says it’s one of his new favorite dinners. 🙂

Ingredients for Beef Pot Pie

You’ll start by pulling your puff pastry sheet out of the freezer and letting it thaw slightly. The rest of the ingredients you will need are here:

  • Puff Pastry – found in the freezer section of the grocery store by the pie crusts
  • Beef Roast – chuck roast is my preferred cut, but a top sirloin or round roast would also work, you could even use ground beef for a budget friendly option
  • Salt – flavor
  • Pepper – flavor
  • Yellow Onion – adds so much to the depth of flavor, see section below for using onions if you are not a fan of onions
  • Garlic – flavor
  • Carrots – go with real carrots that you peel and slice, no baby carrots
  • Celery – flavor and texture
  • Peas – I love these bright pops of flavor and color. They get added right before adding the filling to the baking dish so they don’t get too mushy.
  • Flour – thickens the filling
  • Rosemary – fresh is best, but you can use dried if you need to, 1 sprig fresh = 1 teaspoon dried
  • Bay Leaf – adds so much flavor, remove it before adding the filling to the baking dish
  • Thyme – fresh is preferred, but if you need to use dried, 1 teaspoon fresh = 1/3 teaspoon dried
  • Beef Broth – the base of the gravy that the meat and veggies will simmer in and become the delicious filling
  • Balsamic Vinegar – add sweetness and tanginess to the gravy
  • Worcestershire Sauce – our preferred brand is Lea & Perrins and it is essential! It adds great umami flavor!
  • Dijon Mustard – adds to the depth of flavor in the gravy
  • Whole Milk – used for the egg wash
  • Egg – used for the egg wash that will make crust beautifully golden

The measurements for each ingredient can be found in the recipe card down below.

What If You Hate Onions?

I heard you all loud and clear on instagram, you either love or absolutely hate onions and there’s not really any who are in between. So can you substitute onions in a recipe? Well, in my personal opinion, no.
