Alternatives to microwaving your protein: Nutritional and taste compromises
Whether you like it or not, figuring how to live without a microwave oven in the modern world is a great challenge. Right? In fact, there are great alternatives to microwave ovens, which range from stovetops, convection ovens and toaster ovens. So, when choosing a suitable microwave alternative, remember why exactly you don’t want a microwave.
Did you know that protein cooked or heated using a microwave oven loses its nutritional elements and does not taste good? This quick method of cooking doesn’t let flavours to grow and blend like other conventional cooking methods do.
So, what about nutrients?
Well, this is the other main reason to avoid microwaves as much as possible. There is scientifically proven evidence to show that microwaves destroy nutritional value in food, more quickly than other cooking methods.
We all know that microwaves are convenient. But ‘convenience’ is not always the best option! Microwaves produce not-so-great tasting food, they destroy nutrients, and there is a high possibility of harmful radiation on the food. So, what other better alternatives do we have?
Alternatives to microwaving
Well, there are some pretty obvious alternative cooking methods. These are safe and healthy options you must try!
- Conventional Ovens: These ovens can be used multiple times per day to cook or reheat any type of protein or food.
- Toaster Oven: For times when you have to heat only small amount of food or easily cook-able protein, a toaster oven is the solution.
- Pan Heating: This is ideal to cook and heat proteins for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is the most non-toxic and environmentally friendly cooking method for any kind of food.
- Convection Oven: A countertop convection oven gives the best of both worlds. How? It combines the fast cooking aspect of a microwave with the quality and safety elements of the oven. What more could you ask for?
