Been seeing a lot of folks here talking about vegan recipes and nuking this and that in the microwave. Although I'm ecstatic to see everyone making healthy vegan meals, I can't help but cringe every time someone says they use a microwave.
I cant be the only one here that avoids them like the plague. I don't remember the last time I used one. At best, microwaves destroy valuable nutrients, and thats enough for me to phase them out.
I also recognize that a microwave oven does not need as much power as an electric oven. Which is why smaller toaster ovens are great for heating stuff up. It takes a bit longer but I don't mind the extra wait for better taste and preserving the integrity of my food.
I kindly invite everyone to explore the idea of ditching their microwave entirely. Food as our nourishment is inherently sacred, and to microwave our nurishment to shave off a couple minutes for convenience is a disservice to oneself. Taking adequate time to prepare our meals properly should be a priority that most folks are too busy to undertake.
Does anyone have any clever ways to circumvent the microwave and still have a quick and healthy vegan meal? Please share for our microwave users to enjoy.
One of my personal favorites is I like to take a piece of pita bread, sprinkle an ACTUAL serving of Daiya cheese on and put it in the oven for a couple minutes while I get everything else ready. By the time I've readied my dose of sprouts, spinach, tomatoes, avocado, etc the pita is ready to go and I just throw everything on and have myself a mega vegan tasty taco thingie. 5 minutes and no microwave. :)
I read out your interesting and informative post.I never listen or read about it that harmful for our health.This is a very useful thread that will be reference long into ther future.Thanks for sharing this informative post.
I can't say with certainty that what you said is correct but I personally don't use microwaves for anything at all. After phasing them out I have found I don't miss it and I have peace of mind knowing that my foods haven't been potentially irradiated.
