I've been vegetarian for a couple of years and plan to go vegan after the holidays. I bought Alicia's book as soon as it came out and absolutely love it! I would like to follow the superheroes plan but am concerned about how to realistically cook all of the dishes while working full time. Like others, I eat breakfast and lunch at work and wonder not only how to transport, but how to warm up without using a microwave. I did see the posting about a thermos for the soup (good idea), but can the other dishes be eaten at room temperature? I'm used to cooking and cutting up vegetables on the weekend without doing much during the week.
Would love to hear how others have followed this plan while working, raising families, etc!
Hey Penny I posted this in another thread, but what about using a hotplate at work? You can get one for under $20, and this would be a great way to reheat without the mirowave. I'm getting one for my office soon.
If you cook extra of any grain or soup dishes they can be eaten at room temp. I have a kitchen in my office but many employers will just allow a microwave for fire safety concerns. I may be in the minority here but feel as though good food heated up in a microwave is a much better choice then crappy food cooked over a loving, perfect or groovy heat source like gas or electricity. As a person with a scientific perspective, I feel that a microwave represents a relatively small and theoretical risk. Eating the standard western diet is guaranteed to involve risk.
Honestly it has been difficult for me - (this is week 6 for me) . I work 9-10 hours per day and some evenings don't get finished cooking until 9pm. For this reason I haven't been able to stick to the menu by day, but instead have rice burritos or beans, etc (something already cooked) on some days. It did get easier as I became more famliar with the ingredients etc., after the first couple of weeks. I went straight from Carnivor to Superhero though, I hope to never to go back. It's worth a little extra work to feel healthy - and I feel great.
