Nutrition Tip of the Day - January 12, 2011

Today's Nutrition Tip:

Steam your veggies instead of boiling them. Vitamin C and the B Vitamins are water soluble, so they can leach out in the cooking water. Steaming your vegetables reduces the vitamin loss, as does cooking them only until the vegetables are tender-crisp.

  1. Thanks for the tip. You might not get the nutrients in vegetables if you boil them. Steaming them is better.
