Problem Solved- Love my Toaster Oven
Dr. Colbert stated in his book that "One study that showed that only 6 min of microwave cooking destroyed 1/2 the vitamin b12 in dairy foods and meats, a much higher rate of destruction than other cooking methods. In another test, microwaved broccoli lost between 87-97% of several major caner-protecting antioxidants"
The problem is I did not have anything to replace it with. The stove is great, but then I have more pans to wash. The oven is good, but it takes a while to heat up. I finally broke down and added one more appliance to my precious counter space. I'm kicking myself for not investing in this a long time ago. I love it. It warms the food evenly and it makes leftovers taste 100x better.
I'm spending the extra money on good organic produce, so I for sure don't want to zap all that nutrients by microwaving it. Invest in your health and get one if you don't already.
