Visited Italy, India, Greece over the Weekend

To Italy we go!
 Oven baked Salmon with Garlic, Carrots, and Onion, some of the easy but delicious Sun Dried Tomato Farro (#1 cook like rice, add olive oil and sun dried tomato) , and a Chard-Portobello Mushroom Saut√©.  I used a bit of tomato, lemon, and a Wheat Pita as well, just not pictured.
-Salmon, Garlic, Garlic Salt, Onion, Carrots, Lemon
-Rainbow Chard, Portobello. Thyme, Rosemary, Garlic, Lemon, Olive Oil
-Farro, Olive Oil, Sun Dried Tomato,
-Some Basil to mix in as desired
Busted out the Tempeh and Wheat Wrap for lunch, along with some Farmer's Market Basil Pesto and Hummus.  I tried the tinfoil-bamboo steamer method to see if I could get my entire wrap warm and toasty, but it only turned out warm.  I need a drier method of heating I think.
-Wheat Wrap, Tomato, Cucumber, Hummus, Brown Rice, Tempeh
-Mixed Greens, Cucumber, Tomato, Tofu, Olives, Hummus, Almonds, Olive Oil, Rice Wine Vinegar 

These two massive plates (lunch + dinner) were consumed within a 4 hour time period. followed by more hunger a little later. That's what 8000 feet of road bike climbing gets you!
 India Dinner
Stir Fried the Herb Chicken with Fennel and spices to bring it back in a new life, topped with dollops of my Awesome Yogurt sauce, Pita, Rice, and Salad.
-Herb Chicken, Fennel, Fennel Seed Powder, Curry Powder, Olive Oil
-Greek Strained Yogurt, Lemon, Cucumber, Garam Masala, Curry Powder, Cumin
-Brown Rice and Wheat Pita (not pictured)
-Mixed Greens, Cucumber, Avocado
 Welcome to the Mediterranean
If only the weather outside was the same... All the right ingredients, especially Spinach Bolani from the Farmer's Market means I am making my Favorite Med Plate. I guess I didn't have Dolmas, but that's fine with me.
-Meyer Lemon Herb Chicken, Spinach Bolani, Brown Rice
-Salad of Mixed Greens, Cucumber, Tomato
-Olives, Hummus, Lemon
Wasn't going to include this, but it turned out kind of nice and added some variety to my routine so I figured why not.  A cereal bowl and remixed muffin along with my usual herbal tea (Honeybush this time)
-Banana, Soymilk, Almond Butter, Shredded Wheat
-Apple Cranberry Oat Muffin, turned into an Almond Butter Treat
