Do not underestimate the power of your microwave oven to be a menacing influence on your family’s togetherness.
The invention of the microwave has spawned a multi-billion dollar industry of prepackaged, processed, less nutritious, “convenient” food. No need for a home-cooked meal with fresh ingredients. Now everyone can grab his or her own individual meal and zap away, eating alone or on the run.
To be fair, microwaves do make life a little easier when time is of the essence, but it’s crucial not to allow them to keep you from sharing healthy, home-cooked meals with your family often. In just the past three years, microwave use has gone up 20 percent, at a time when we need to be more focused on quality family time and nutrition like never before.
Make sure you’re the boss of the microwave in your home!
