‘Is it really so bad to nuke myself a meal?’
Solution: Not if you steer clear of heavily processed choices. I often zap frozen vegetables (which, since they’re picked at peak ripeness, are just as nutritious as fresh) with a lean protein such as rotisserie chicken, tuna or salmon. You could also enjoy vegetable rice (try Woolworths’
Cauliflower, Broccoli & Kale Rice, R34,99) or vegetable spirals. Pop in the microwave (or cook them on the stove) and you’re fed.
