Yup, that’s right we don’t own a microwave. Man, I should have added that to the Hippy List. Its cool though, I just do my thing microwave-less and maybe you should too.
Why?…This article will explain.
How?… I’ll take care of that part.
To start with, I make the majority of our food at home, from scratch. No Easy Mac, no Hot Pockets, nothing that requires the use of a microwave in the first place. Does it take more time? yes of course, but I’m okay with that. The health benefits of home made food totally outweighs the extra time spent in the kitchen. Besides, I’ve had a lot of fun learning all kinds of new recipes and cooking techniques.
A simple small sauce pan can melt butter or coconut oil right on the stove, its also great for heating up leftovers and soups. Speaking of leftovers, We picked up some glass containers that are oven safe. I can store leftovers in them and pop them in the oven when its time to eat. Also, A good sized toaster oven can warm smaller things up quickly so you don’t have to run your whole oven for a couple slices of pizza.
Once you get the hang of life without the microwave its gets pretty easy. We haven’t had one in almost two years and at this point I don’t even think about it.
Could you give up your microwave?
