So I am completely happy with getting rid of my microwave at home the issue is at work. I made vegan/superhero meals every day at home for lunch, but in my office I have no other way to heat them up besides the microwave... I'm wondering what others have done in this situation
OMG I am having the SAME issue!! I have all this yummy food at home but I can't eat it at work. Depending on your company..if it is very small..can you bring in like an old toaster oven? There is only 3 people at my office so that may be an option for me. I also have thought of just an electric tea kettle..that way I could heat some soups with that. I really dont see a real answer to it. I have been thinking about it for a few weeks now. :( Salad and cold dishes seem the only way I can see..which doesn't sound bad at all in summer but IT'S COLD and I need HOT food. I have been buying my lunch the last couple of weeks because of this delema.
There was a discussion going on about the same thing a few days ago. I think it was under the heading "Superhero Diet Too Hard?" People had some really good suggestions. 1 that I liked was pour really hot water into a thermos and then pour it out and stick your heated food in there and it should stay hot until lunch time. Someone also mentioned a hot plate. I don't have a microwave at home either. At work I alternate between using the microwave and taking salads with beans and other good stuff in them. I know microwaves are bad, but every once in a while I'll use one. I mean just about every restaurant uses them, so they are hard to avoid. I do my best.
Thanks for your responses:) It's just tough at work! Today I will have to use the microwave...but I'm still trying to figure out what to do. I live in colddd ny so I definitely want a hot meal at lunch...I'll have to figure something out because eating cold food for lunch each day just doesn't cut it. Good thing I made a big batch of superhero rice krispies! haha..they don't require any heating thankgoodness
Hi Em, I have the same problem too! Especially in the winter I really need something hot to keep me satisfied! What do you usually bring to work? I've brought in some superhero meals and everyone is always like "what IS that" .. and i'm trying to find some things to snack on.. vending machine food is gross but i'm not a huge nut/peanut butter fan..
