I am taking part of Panasonic’s #MicrowaveOnly challenge. What exactly does that entail? Well, for one day, I have to create all of my meals in the microwave! It’s actually a lot easier than I thought it would be.
For this challenge, I’m using Panasonic’s Full-Size 1.6 cu. ft. Genius Prestige Countertop / Built-in Microwave Oven with Inverter Technology, aka Model #NN-SE782S.
Since living in an apartment, I’ve always been a little frugal with my microwave. I figured that since my living situation was only temporary, I shouldn’t buy a “good’ microwave because I’ll end up moving and selling it anyways.
I was thrilled when Panasonic sent me a microwave to use for this challenge. Heck, this microwave is even better than “good,” it’s awesome. With a cooking power of 1250 watts, you can heat up things in no time! My little microwave before this took forever just to heat up water for some tea. With this, well, you’ll see…
For breakfast, I made Creamy Oats with Apple, Cherry, and Walnuts. I adjusted the recipe from Panasonic by using almond milk rather than apple juice for that extra creaminess.
The result was a hearty and fulfilling breakfast that kept me full all morning.
Since the oatmeal kept me pretty full, I wasn’t starving when lunch came by. I decided to stay on the healthy track and eat a sweet potato.
Thanks to Panasonic’s inverter technology, my sweet potato cooked evenly and kept it’s texture and taste. The inside of the potato was just as warm as the outside, so there were no cold spots anywhere!
For dinner, I admit that I heated up some leftovers along with a bag of microwavable popcorn. #guilty You really have to keep an eye out on your popcorn when using different microwaves– with this Panasonic, I only had to do it for a minute and twenty seconds rather than almost two minutes!
