This short post isn’t about the much debated dangers of microwaves. Rather, it’s about healthier alternatives. Feel free to google about the effects of microwaving your food but do read both sides of the story and cross-reference with reliable journals before making your judgement. I choose to avoid microwaves to err on the safe side of things but ultimately, the choice is yours to make!
Pictures arranged in a clockwise fashion starting from the top-left:
- Add some healthy oils. Here I added a mix of grass-fed butter, olive, coconut & avocado oil.
- Add your food & stir. I usually cook extra so I can eat the leftovers for the next meal. This saves me time and they can be kept for a few days in the fridge. Here I’m adding pre-cooked yellow cauliflower, wild-caught salmon, red lettuce, two 3/4 boiled eggs and Himalayan pink sea salt. Stir to mix the oils in.
- Set the fire at low heat and cover the pot to avoid burning the food. Stir periodically to ensure even heat distribution.
- Remove from heat when you hear the oil sizzling. Other signs of when your food is warm enough include steam clouding your vision of the food inside of the lid. You can also place your hand above the food to feel the temperature of the steam from the food or even simply taste it!
- Serve. I like to add seaweed both for taste and because its hard to get sufficient iodine in our diets. I also add some pickled veggies for flavor and nourishment!
