Nuke those Veggies!!!

It turns out that microwaving vegetables may not be all that bad as far as nutrition goes.  

I've always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with my microwave.    I absolutely love the convenience, but there's been so much literature about microwaves sapping the veggies of their nutrients and other bad stuff, that it's always left me in a big of quandary.   

Well, it turns out that whether you nuke, saute, boil or bake, you're losing some nutrients.   
While I'm still squeamish about nuking, I think that it's better to microwave vegetables and eat them, than avoid eating them because it's too much work (although eating raw is probably the best of all). 

I do follow some rules, however.   I never microwave in plastic to avoid the leeching of cancer causing chemicals into my food, and  try to keep the time in the microwave as short as possible.

    this particular publish extraordinary. Great process!
