According to Erin Palinski, R.D., a dietitian in New Jersey and the author of Belly Fat Diet for Dummies, studies have found that nutrient retention of vitamin C, vitamin B6, calcium, and magnesium was highest in foods like brocoli, cauliflower, potatoes, and frozen corn and peas that were steamed in the microwave. The same foods that were boiled in the microwave, or steamed or boiled on the stovetop had fewer of those nutrients.
So in the interest of saving some time (and maybe boosting the vitamin levels in your foods), take a look at some of the things you might not have known you can microwave.
