 THE MAINSTAY OF ANY HEALTHY DIET

Vegetables are the mainstay of any healthy diet, but all the vegetables in the world won’t do you much good if you

cook all the nutrition out of them. Almost every vegetable loses nutritive value in the cooking process. Therefore, ideally, the less time they spend on the stove, the better they are for you. Microwaves provide an advantage because they achieve the desired degree of doneness in less time than conventional stovetop cooking. In addition, microwaving requires less water, which also helps preserve nutrients in the vegetables.
