Hello. First time poster here... Hope some of you can give me ideas.

I'm leaving for Hawaii in a week. I'll be there long enough that I won't be able to handle eating out everyday, nor afford it. All I will have in the room is a microwave and fridge, and I don't want to have to buy all frozen, microwaveable dishes, or eat all my fresh foods raw since it's really hard on my digestion. 

Does anyone have experience with microwave "cooking"? What healthy things do you like to make? Steaming veggies in the microwave is easy and boring - looking for a little bit more than that!

Will definitely need to get my veggies in so I don't feel yucky and sluggish. I'm sure I'll figure things out once I'm at the supermarket and see what's available, but I'd like to hear from you. Thanks in advance. :)

I've never tried it but I assume it would work... You might have to test the noodles and keep nuking them until they're almost done. I only boil my soba noodles for a few minutes before taking them off heat that's why I suggested those but instant ramen noodles would definitely work if you're worried about messing it up (just toss the packet and use real stock)

Hm... It will probably take several nukings to tenderize them enough, but it sounds possible. I'll try it at home before doing it there. Ramen noodles are my last resort, but will do in a pinch. Thanks again. :)
