…and I don’t miss it at all! My 48-hour challenge has quickly turned into 6 weeks. With the exception of a few “emergencies” where I needed to melt my coconut oil or butter really fast, and heating up my “rice sock,” I haven’t used the microwave at all. No more nuking veggies or heating up leftovers. It’s become normal to me to just pull out a saucepan to reheat food. And cooking Superman’s sweet potato in the microwave every morning? No more! I pre-bake 4-5 sweet potatoes, cut them up and put them in individual containers, and fry them up each morning in olive oil or butter.
I wish I could say that I’ve noticed huge changes, but I really haven’t. I can say, though, that the taste of food reheated on the stove is MUCH different than that in the microwave. Totally worth a few extra minutes and a dirty pan.
So, I guess it’s really not an experiment anymore. It’s just the way things are!
