Hi, Which fruits and vegetables are heathier cooked than raw? I was thinking that maybe carrots are heathier cooked because it is easier to digest. Thanks, Philip

The risk (parasites) seems greater than the reward (undefined) in this situation.

A true statement would be that cooked food is simply somewhat less enzymatically reactive than raw food. Somewhat. At 114-120??F, proteins/enzymes denature, before renaturing when cooled (i.e. edible temperatures). A slab of steak doesn't... (more)

Probably a little sketchy. I would sear at least. Opt for something a little more 'local' (at least in the same country) if you can find it if you want to eat it raw... Check out this site: http://www.seachoice.org/fish/mahi-mahidolphinfish/... (more)

Kefir should not taste yeasty or disgusting. It should have a creamy texture -depending on the proportion of culture added to milk-, it should have a fairly tangy taste and a fulfilling sensation upon ingesting it. Having said that, we shouldn??t... (more)

I have seen it contended that, because unsaturated fats tend to go rancid easier, and that since a lot of nuts can be high in unsaturated fats, that they can oxidize, or go rancid, when roasted. What kind of nuts do you like to eat?
