True they didn't have stoves or microwaves but you can bake or roast food in the embers of an open fire, steam food in a pit below a fire, roast nuts in woven baskets using heated rocks, boil food in wooden bowls or animal skins again using heated rocks, steam food by cooking it wrapped it in leaves etc.

Cooking is unnecessary.

Done it. Gross. Truly ruining a potentially great food.

Gant...that's awesome, but a little to hardcore for me.

Any suggestions for meat now that I officially know all I can use is a microwave?!

Depends on the meat you get. I get good grass-fed lamb leg steaks, all I do to it is EVOO and herbs/spices...

Or there is always liver tabs...25 days of 20 tabs (56g of protein!) for ~$35US...

The bioavailability of many nutrients is increased by cooking which means less food needs to be eaten; an important consideration for people eating a paleolithic diet containing a lot of fibrous plant foods.
For this reason if I was in the OP's position I'd buy a steamer rather than a George Foreman grill as it would allow me to cook my meat or fish wrapped in foil with some herbs and olive oil while my veggies steamed.
