Ok to microwave oatmeal?
Just about every morning I have 1 cup oatmeal "bulk from farmers market" I microwave it with water for 2 minutes, then I add scoop chocolate protein and handful of frozen blueberries.
I'm trying to get my wife to try it but she says she doesn't want to cook it and doesn't want to microwave it. She says it kills the nutrients and benefits.
So... compared to stove top, is microwaving oatmeal really that much worse?

Worse how? Not going to make it bad for you in any way. May lead to a slight texture difference I guess but that's about it. I microwave mine.ADVANCED MUSCLE SCIENCE

Nothing wrong with it i nuke my oats every AM. I do not nuke in plastic ever since i have heard estrogen can come form nuked plastic but otherwise don't worry about nuking food.

The only difference when it comes to cooking in the microwave as opposed to the stove top is the overall quality... It is completely fine to make it in the microwave... If you do make it on the stove top, you will find that it has a little better quality as far as how it tastes and the overall texture, but it is completely fine to make it in the microwave...

If your wife does not want to cook or microwave oatmeal, then get her to have it cold. She can either do it on the day, or put it in the fridge overnight in a little water or milk to soften it (depending on how coarse it is), and add fruit and protein (and nuts, yoghurt, etc.) to it in the morning.

You could check out a super human radio podcast about the dangers of microwaving food. I didn't listen to it but I think that with all the RF we are exposed to everyday I highly doubt the microwave will be that detrimental unless you are microwaving yourself.

what about the idea that it adversely effects the nutritional content? is it minimal, or not really at all?
