Isn’t microwave cooking unhealthy?
- No! There’s a misconception that microwave cooking is unhealthy, I’m not sure where that started from. Possibly the myth stemmed from the fact that so many people heat convenience foods in the microwave. When you use whole foods, microwaving is one of the healthiest methods of cooking, it does a better job of preserving vitamins and minerals than just about all other forms of cooking. This is mostly due to the fact that the cooking time is shorter in a microwave, and there is less water involved, which translates to less chance for all those nutrients to escape. So microwave with confidence, people!
