Chop Topped Spinach & Arugula Salad with Chili-Salt-N-Peppa Chicken Breast


We’re currently in Portland for the World Domination Summit and yesterday the Spyr Media team took a field trip to Whole Foods to pick up some supplies. This lunch was the result of products we picked up from that fun little trip.

I’ve never been to a Whole Foods, or any other grocery store for that matter, where there were local options available and promoted. Although I enjoy grocery shopping regularly, this little trip through Whole Foods was extra fun spotting all the different local options that are not available in the Chicagoland locations.

All the ingredients used to make this lunch were organic, including the chicken!

We’ve got a few more days we’ll be here in Portland. If you’re around, connect with me on Twitter and we’ll meet up. :)
