That is my microwave. I know, it’s only a small appliance, but for years I have said that a microwave is one of the best things I have ever purchased. It has been a great appliance over the years, giving me the great combination of convenience and being a time saver. But, I never knew how wonderful and helpful a microwave could be until chronic illness became part of my life.

When there are days that I don’t have the energy to stand in front of a stove and cook something decent to eat, the microwave is something that absolutely improves my life. I do batch cooking so there is always food such as chicken meat loaf, roasted potatoes and carrots, and frozen peas and corn in my freezer. On my really crappy days, I can still make myself a healthy meal. I’m able to sit or lie down while waiting for my meal to heat up and I’m not standing in front of a hot stove or in a hot kitchen on a day when I’m feeling dizzy and hot.

The microwave is not a health-related item, but it definitely makes things so much easier when I’m feeling woozy and I’m able to have a healthy meal in only a few minutes.
