Sometimes it comes up that I have to tell people I don’t use microwaves.  I tend to get the same reaction, which is a mixture of confusion and wonder.  To put it nicely.

I should think that it would seem natural to nix the microwave, because there is nothing normal or natural about zapping your food with rays/waves.  People survived for thousands of years without them and seemed to do just fine.  People all over the world still survive without microwaves.  In our fast paced culture, sometimes its nice to just slow down.

Moreover, microwaved food never tastes as good.  And can it really be healthy?

But if you like, keep on microwaving.  I will abstain.
