Going for takeaway or choosing frozen meals because you’re nervous about cooking or short on time is understandable.
It’s important for good health and wellbeing to enjoy a wide variety of foods. This means eating wholegrains or cereals, vegetables, dairy (or dairy-free alternatives), protein and fruit, as well as drinking plenty of water.
Cooking healthy meals in the microwave can help achieve a balanced diet without complicated recipes or cooking appliances that you may not have.
Some of the many benefits of microwave cooking include:
- no additional fats or oils are needed when cooking with a microwave
- recipes often include every day or easy to access ingredients
- can be less expensive for people who live alone or who are cooking for only themselves
The recipes featured in the cookbook include mains, soups, sides and desserts – all made in the microwave and approved by dietitians.
