To Microwave or Not? That is the question...

For years, friends have been telling me how bad microwaving food can be for your health. When Ella was a baby, I had a strict "no microwave" policy. No doubt I have annoyed many family members by asking to use one of their pans, rather than sticking a plate in the microwave. As time has gone on, I have gotten much more lax... as much as I hate to admit it. After all, there is a reason why microwaves are a busy mom's best friend. But I read this article today on the HuffingtonPost and now I am thinking about going back to my original policy.

Ugh, something else too worry about. I never had a microwave growing up. I have one now that I received as a wedding shower gift, it's quite big. I always thought they were bad. I never cook in it, but I do occassionally defrost or heat something especially during the summer. It's too hot to always turn on the oven just to heat something up. I have been thinking of getting rid of it. One reason it would clear up some counter space which is good when your kitchen is small. After reading this, I think it may be time for it to go. Although, I'll have to convince my husband that yes we can live without it.

Thanks for the link to the article.
