Myth: Raw Vegetables Are the Healthiest

The argument for raw vegetables has always been that natural enzymes can be lost while cooking them.

These enzymes are a bit of a mystery, though, and so far it isn’t known what they do.

Cooking vegetables releases their antioxidants, though, which we know is good.

So for now, steam or simmer your vegetables for six or seven minutes to make sure they are as nutritionally great as possible!2

I was really surprised at some of these myths...I did give up eggs for a while, and I’m so glad white bread is not as bad as I was told, as I love it!2

My favourite myth, though?

The water one.

I hate water, so it’s such a relief!

Have you heard a food myth thats simply not true?

Please share it with me!
