can heat up my soup or leftovers in the container itself, lock on the lid and it will keep for hours. I know a lot of people these days are not comfortable with plastic of any kind, especially heating foods up in plastic, but I'm not one of those people! I'm totally fine with it, I'm not trippin'. And then there are some people that don't like to microwave! In fact I know a few people that don't even own one. But for me, I love the microwave! Sure I could live without it, and I like food reheated the traditional ways, stovetop/oven, but I don't have to those appliances available at work or on the road, but again, it saves time (and dishes).
whoops....I forgot to post a picture of yesterday's food journal entry and I'm already in bed...I'll post two of them tomorrow, and you'll get a kick out of today's! (let's just say there was a lot of chocolate involved)
