Meal prep some seasoned chicken to use for the week

The chicken was simple. Just salt and pepper so I can season it more depending on the dish. For example, for the salad I added oregano, lemon, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and tiny dash of salt and pepper.

Salads are so refreshing after the summer heat

The greens have their own special health benefits; arugula and spinach. Arugula is big on antioxidants, helps with immune system, aids with weight loss, and high in vitamin C. Spinach is filled with vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin K1. It also helps with eye health, lowers blood pressure, and lowers oxidative stress.
