    Excellent delicious recipes but I am surprised you say to microwave the sweet potato and pear pudding.

    Researchers have found that microwaving destroys antioxidants in broccoli so I don’t doubt it destroys antioxidants in other foods as well.

    Russian research found that carcinogenic free radicals were formed in microwaved plants, especially root vegetables.

    I got rid of my microwave years ago.

    Sandy, you have a good eye and it is an excellent point. I don’t use microwave myself, but it is another story. I let people enjoy the recipes and make their own choices. I always try not to overwhelm my clients, readers and listeners with too much information.:-) I truly believe in one step at a time…
    Breathe smile and be happy.
