    Ziplock now sells microwave steamer bags, they work great and the veggies come out looking and more importantly tasting great.

    I buy microwavable veggies and the ones that come in those steam bags. So thats good to hear that microwaving them is actually good.

    I was watching good eats and the whole episode was about broccoli and they said that microwaving broccoli actually destroys 74-90% of the antioxidants. Anyone ever hear of this?
