Hi thanks to you both for the feedback.
sdarling, i do the crockpot thing too sometimes. thx good to remember to do that.
Kara, yeah i have a kitchen, stove, microwave etc, but Im just not a big fan of microwaving food, it takes alot of the nutrients out and breaks down the food. I know Im totally in the minority, everyone uses a microwave and I do too sometimes, just prefer not to. I didnt have one for about the last 10 years and just got one again about a year ago. Mostly for this reason. Sometimes I need a break from cooking all the time and like to have some organic healthy options.
Just thought maybe the whole foods thread might find some answers.
thx again, open to feedback
