  1. Is there any healthy microwavable food?


    There are times when I cant cook a decent meal. Recently I got microwavable meatballs from Ikea, and they were not bad. Is there any microwavable like chicken nugget or something that's not going to suck nutrition-wise.

  3. microwaveable chicken. tastes just like roasted and its really moist. i had some tonight

  4. Considering the microwave destroys food, even if you put broccoli in.. By the time it's done it'll be virtually useless nutritionally.

  8. One major rule with microwaving....Use glass containers. Alot of talk about plastics leeching into the food. Also, I try to avoid the microwave, but for a quick reheat 15-20 seconds wont make your food useless.

    The key thing I do is go with cold meals for work usually. And as for it making the food useless, improbable. I have used very healthy microwave meals and grew well!

    That being said, I am trying to get them to let me bring an extension cord and let me use my georgeforman grill at work

    I used to use a foreman grill for lunch at one job. 90% lean beef patties with cottage cheese, flaxseed whole grain bread, green beans, and a cup of green tea.

    I was envied. Then again I also did dips on chairs, and push ups for my breaks back then...

    That sounds like pretty much the best lunch break ever. Except sex.

But the post about whatever you microwave becomes useless nutritionally is retarded, im sure it degrades somewhat but to call it useless is a bit of an overstatement dont you think?

    I never called it useless if you were referring to me lol... It has its uses...like target practice for instance. Seriously though the way food tastes from a microwave whether thawing or cooking is disgusting in so many ways. Unless your using microwaveable porcelain or comparable (even cheap glass can leech substances)
    than you are getting more than you want and less than you need. Why does food taste so gross when it is microwaved? If it is just heating it up, why does it taste like **** and not the normal delicious way the food should taste? I personally don't use one. I thaw my meat out and cook it the right damn way. If your in a dorm, buy the rocket grill or something...learn how to cook healthy and it won't be so hard to follow a weightlifter's diet.
    The study has many variables that can be argued...but the results look like what the food that goes in tastes like. I highly doubt the nutrition is the same as meat lightly seared in a pan or on a grill with a bit of OO or veggies for that matter.

    nah, I know it wasnt you that said that.. I do cook my meat, however i dont have the time on my lunch break to drive home and cook 2 pieces of chicken, I do all my cooking first thing of a morning and use the microwave at work to re-heat my lunch, only things i microwave is lunch (only on days i work) and my breakfast oats..

    One time, I put food in my microwave to cook it.

    But when I opened it up, there was nothing there.

  21. As a result microwave ovens were banned in Russia in 1976; the ban was lifted after Perestroika.
    So in the 80s they were unbanned.

    Yeah because of politics.... just like cigarette smoking is still legal.... The question was... "Is there any healthy microwavable food" the answer has to be "NO" because microwaving is UNHEALTHY. I hope this we can all agree on

  23. That's probably safe to say, but the real question is how unhealthy is it to rewarm food in a microwave.

  24. I grew up almost primarily on microwavable food because I grew up with a single mom who worked, so I sort of raised myself and fed myself. I didn't whither, I actually consider myself above average.
