Microwave that suggests healthy eating

Larger microwave display that suggests healthy things to eat

Diagnosing illness makes sense but preventing it is better. If a microwave suggested healthy foods you could eat (with a larger display). It might affect 1-5% of the meals prepared causing healthier eating, making some slight difference in cumulative healthy diet or introducing new dishes to make.

I do not really know what would be in a "mediterranean bowl", but "lentil soup" or some appealing way of saying "fiber surprise" could be the kinds of suggestions that appear on the display.

It would be suggested at the promotion that this was a way to start a healthy diet and stay reminded.

       Sounds like the food replicators on Star Trek: Discovery.

       Not all surprises are good.   

       "Waiter, so what was the surprise with the dish I just ate?"   

       "That will come sometime tomorrow sir."

       I've not seen much of Discovery, frankly I may never get around to it. However, in TNG diet is enforced directly by the replicators, no gentle recommendations or hints. My memory might be slightly off, but 1:11 into season 3 episode 8 Troi is denied a chocolate sundae that she's clearly trying to use to mitigate certain disturbances in her emotional-hormonal balance. The svelte figures of the Trek universe are clearly dictated by machines. O'brian is likely the only one with the technical expertise to forge some sort of workaround to facilitate his progression into a bit of a chunker.

       Apparently all the Klingon scenes are spoken in Klingon (and only subtitled) so looks like an effort was spent keeping to the Trekkie universe. I'm not a Trekkie but remember the original airing of "The Trouble with Tribbles" and understood the pet cooing tribble on the Captains desk in Discovery.   

       And now you mention it, the replicator seemed to be arguing with the crew member. There were choices, but not that broad.

       With a non-volatile memory? "Burrito? You just had a burrito. Have an apple instead and let me get some sleep." Bun [+]
