Ways of Cooking Vegetables – You Cooking Them “Wrong”?
Well, while there’s no real “wrong” way to cook veggies, there are some that kill most of their healthy nutrients, and others that preserve, or even unlock the precious nutrition that makes them such an important part of your diet.
Think about it, if you could:
- Enhance Nutrition
- Maintain Nutrition
- Reduce Nutrition
just through the way you cooked your food, wouldn’t you at least choose option 1 or 2?
How you’re cooking your vegetables can really make all the difference. The key is to use ways of cooking vegetables that doesn’t destroy their nutrition. One of the most popular ways to cook them is boiling them. After all, what could be easier?
Just get the water boiling and drop them in. What could be simpler, right?
WRONG!! (and here’s why)
Boiling veggies unlocks important, water soluble vitamins….. Vitamin C is one of the most important here. B vitamins are also water soluble. That’s why your urine turns bright yellow when you take those giant B vitamin supplements.
So far, so good!
Unfortunately, boiling veggies sends much of those vitamins right down your sink as you pour out the water. Not so good….
Fortunately, there are at least 3 better ways (nutritionally speaking) to cook vegetables. They’re just as easy as boiling, and probably faster. Happy day!
One is steaming. It’s similar to boiling, but doesn’t let the water carry away most of your nutrients. It’s easy, especially if you use a steamer. A steamer is perfect not only for veggies, but rice too (brown rice only, please!)
