No need to add a nutrient destroying device to it.

And now that I'm getting into healthy eating, I can feel the difference. When I microwave something, I'm hungry again a couple of hours sooner. Depending on the meal (even healthy meals) I'll often feel tired or have somewhat unsettled guts after microwaving. I noticed that if I don't microwave, I just don't get those 2 drawbacks. So given my own experience, and reading up on it, I've decided to just skip the microwave. There does seem to be some options out there to replace it. Although they may not fit perfectly into your kitchen like a microwave will.

Why do all this? Got enough problems in life without food being one of them. Not when I can just eat right and feel much better.
I do not own a microwave. I don't see how microwaves agitating water would make the food lose nutrients more than putting fire on it.

**EDIT** I should have kept reading and saw bcoops response.

Have you heard about using your dishwasher to cook food? I bet it works great.

Absolutely, completely, totally, 1000% FALSE. 5 minutes of googling would turn this theory on it's head.



Do you even read what you write? HEAT destroys nutrients. Period. End of story. Does a Nuwave oven produce heat? Yes, yes it does. Does an open (or coiled) burner produce heat? Yes, it does. Does your oven (convection or conventional) produce heat? Yes, yes it does.

A microwave isn't some "magical nutrient destroying device" A microwave produces emits microwaves that in turn cause water molecules to move, which creates heat. Much like many other kitchen appliances. As such, nutrients get destroyed in the process of cooking. It happens in EVERY method of cooking in which heat is used. It happens over fire, over steam, over/under radiant heat, and in a microwave.



No you can't.

This is completely, and entirely in your head (unless you have a pacemaker). You have read so much (or so little) on this topic, that you have convinced yourself that you feel bad after using a microwave.


You're entitled to think what you want, regardless of how misinformed or misguided it may be. But with that said, almost everything you posted above is factually incorrect and/or completely made up.

Read the thread you replied to. And this time, try to understand what you've read. Just to pluck out one of the things you misunderstood, I said that even normal heat does break some nutrients down. I would think that would be obvious, but hey. Go back and reread.

Which is absolutely false. Perhaps you should re read what you posted. You then furthered the idiocy with this.

The first part is true, the second part is ignorant. You're so hung up on "microwaves are the devil" that you can't see that any heat whatsoever is going to kill the same amount of nutrients no matter the method. The longer vegetables are being heated, the more nutrients you're going to kill, no matter what way they are cooked.

I'm not a fan of residential microwaves. The only thing mine gets used for is popcorn, as a matter of fact. But it has nothing to do with some made up fallacy that a microwave is a "nutrient destroying device".


Perhaps you should visit some actual reputable sites for this type of information. Like WebMD, for instance.

Convection ovens, when designed properly, are better for precision cooking/baking due to the air flow. You don't have to turn pans halfway through a bake/cook for even browning, etc.
I haven't been able to see a difference, but I gave up after a few tries. A Lou Malnati's pan pizza actually cooks faster and more evenly on the regular bake setting on this oven, so I was left scratching my head. Pretty sure mine uses the same thermostats for either setting, too. Altitude fucks with everything up here, though, so I'll blame it on that.

Switch to a raw diet, don't cook anything. I did it for a week once just to try it. It's hard to get used too, but is actually pretty good. I never even thought about eating zucchini made into spaghetti before, it's surprisingly good. $15 spiralizer and your good to go!

I want to go to that eventually. Supposedly that's the way to just melt the fat off your body in short order. A month or two of eating raw veggies, some fruit, and a bit of fish here and there. Right now I'm just eating healthy. I'd call that hardcore healthy.

It was pretty nice for me, as I'm diabetic and I did not have to take any insulin for most meals when eating raw veggies. Some have carbs, depending on what you eat, or add to them, but most of it for me was very little carbs.

This raw pad thai is fucking good!

Made this for dinner tonight, it was fucking good! I didn't take any insulin with it, sugar levels staying steady.
Plenty left for tomorrow too
