All about the breakfast things.
It’s no secret: I love breakfast. Or rather should I say, I love breakfast foods. I don’t have to eat them for the first meal of the day, any time will do! I’m regularly feeding my family pancakes or waffles for dinner, and smoothies or muffins for lunch.
In fact, I probably feed my family breakfast for lunch or dinner than I actually do for breakfast…
My latest favorite breakfast for whenever I feel like eating it meal are these Dark Chocolate Triple Berry Muffins. I pretty much make a batch and don’t let anyone else in my family eat them. ‘Cause I’m a good mom like that.
Last month my husband decided we needed a bag of Costco’s frozen berry mix while we were doing our monthly shopping trip, and who was I to argue? Of course, I pretty much ate the whole bag myself… in things like smoothies, and these muffins.
Chocolate + berries = …
Of course, y’all already know that chocolate is my love language, so how could I avoid mixing those delicious berries with my favorite food? And whaddya know, berries and chocolate go UH-mazingly together. Especially when combined in a nice, soft, fluffy muffin.
But don’t take my word for it, you should probably make these and find out for yourself.
Dark Chocolate Triple Berry Muffins
Besides having the absolute most perfect muffin texture, these gorgeous little loaves of goodness are free from grain, dairy, and refined sugar. So they’re practically healthy, too. ??
If you’re not a muffin person, or if you’re like me and hate washing out muffin pans, these Dark Chocolate Triple Berry Muffins also work amazingly in a regular loaf pan. The only changes you’ll have to make are baking it in a greased loaf pan lined with parchment at a higher temperature for a longer time. The end result is equally delicious!

Microwave cooking and nutrition
Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?
How does microwave cooking work?
Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.
Are microwaves safe to cook?
Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.
When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.
Are microwaves bad for your health?
The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.
But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
