Vegetables are an essential part of our daily healthy food because they contain the necessary vitamins and minerals for the human body. So, we should know how to eat them; shall we eat them well- done, medium cooked, grilled or raw?
some vegetables, such as broccoli, potato, zucchini, lose their nutritional value when they are over-cooked. While arugula, scallions, celery, red and green peppers provide us with more nutrients when eaten raw rather then cooked. They, also, give a feeling of fulfillment. On the other hand, carrot, cabbage and tomato gain more nutritional values when they are well-cooked. They proved effective, when cooked, in protecting against prostate cancer and heart diseases.
Eggplant, zucchini, onion, tomato, pepper, potato etc. can be eaten grilled because when they are cooked quickly - by exposing them to high heat - they preserve their vitamins and obtain a delicious BBQ taste. Not to mention that steaming is one of the best way to keep and get the most of the vegetables nutrients.
