Is raw really always better???
I love searching and learning more about healthy eating/cooking tips.
We know that a fruit and vegetables diet is a key to good health but depending how you're preparing them. You may not be getting the most out of them.
Take tomatoes for example;
I can eat them raw or cooked. But I didn't know that cooking tomatoes in fats, makes them more effective.
They can dissolve in fats like olive oil that body absorbs more antioxidants. Slightly cooking veggies is not destroying vitamins and minerals. Actually making them more available and making nutrition easier for body to take in.
Another example; Garlic!
I use it for every dinner. Helps lower blood pressure and full of antioxidants. But also slicing/mincing it actually maximizes the effect.
Keys to healthy leaving are in our hands. Why shouldn't we use them to open a door to healthier life?
