The Good, the Bad and the Raw Food Instagram Addict

Farmers Market loot!
This week and the days to come is all about being thankful for the little things. 
Like the fact that I still have the use of my left hand, while my right hand/arm is severely suffering the pangs of carpal tunnel. The good news is I'm totally going to be fine. The not so good news is under the care and instruction of my wonderful massage therapist I'm not allowed to use my right hand/arm for anything -- including; chopping vegetables, typing on my keyboard, washing dishes, even making my bed. For someone as active as me (not to mention right-handed) this is frustrating to say the least. At the moment I'm using my cell phone to verbally dictate this post into about the miracles of modern technology! All impatience and silly complaining aside I definitely have a lot to be thankful for, so I'm determined to stay positive!
For the next two weeks I'm going to try an experiment using the wonderful and very addictive social media application, instagram. At the moment this is the easiest way for me to reach out to you all without having to compromise the use of my (annoying) healing arm. I hope you'll check in as I plan on posting a photo round-up on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday over the next two weeks. These photos will feature everything or at least most of what I'm eating, with the occasional bonus photos of puppies thrown into the mix.
This is going to be a little challenging given the fact that I have minimal use of my right hand. Most likely you'll be seeing a lot of salads and smoothies, but I also plan on putting Mr AtV to work in the kitchen when his chopping talents are needed. Thank you in advance for your awesome support and patience -- if I had it my way I'd be in the kitchen right now, chopping up the gorgeous bag of shiitake mushrooms that I bought at Farmers Market last weekend.
