Hi everyone, quick 1st question: A woman walks into a Vitamin Shoppe ...?.

My 2nd question is: After watching my success, I am happy to say that my DH is now on the NS plan. My question is, does anyone know how long to microwave 2 entrees. If both require 1 minute 30, then do you double the time? Thanks in advance for the help, Mary..

Your question was: A woman walks into a Vitamin Shoppe ...?.

To keep from starting a whole new thread for this topic; does anyone know if you are able to microwave those meals that require the addition of boiling water? theres no way that I can boil water during the day to make these foods properly, but there is a microwave at my disposal. is this possible? I would love some advice before I ruin some of my food.

Thanks in advanced!..

Jillian, just microwave a cup of water... that's what I do at work. I have a heavy duty disposable cup that I put my water in and then nuke it for 2 minutes and then add it to my NS lunch.. hope that helps!!!..

Well, there is one microwave for a group of at least 25-30 people on average, with a span of about 20 mins to heat and eat their lunch(senior year, and the school decided to give us a 25 min. lunch period..go figure)..

Its really not fair to take up so much time heating water, especially since that microwave is not the best and it would inevitably take longer, nor is it safe to carry or handle hot water in a crowded lunch room where there are very rude people pushing past you every few seconds.

Thank you for your input herberh9637! it definitely helps to know that there is a solution, even if it isnt the easiest. has no one else tried nuking their food as if it were a cup of ramen?..

My friend is a teacher and was doing NS for a while. In the morning before she left home, she would take a thermos and put the meal and the hot water in, stir it up, and close it. At lunchtime she would open it up and it was all done and still hot. She said it didn't get too mushy. Worth a try!..

Thank you so much! thats a great idea! it would definitely save me time too...

How about making the meals that require water at home and transporting in a small thermos? I do that sometimes when I'm traveling...

I fix the add-water-to-the-cup meals in the microwave all the time. Add tap water, microwave for 60-90 seconds, but then make sure to let it sit with the lid on for a couple more minutes before you eat it. Works great!.

One more thought, I saw one of those small immersion water heaters at Bed, Bath and Beyond today. You can keep that in a desk drawer, and then just heat your water in a coffee cup anywhere. I didn't know they still made these, but before all the hotel rooms added coffeemakers, I always traveled with one of these all the time...

Oh, my, that brings back ancient memories of college. I didn't know they still made those either (college was really really long ago for me (LOL))...

You may want to bump the power down a couple notches, just in case...
