Surprising as it may seem, cooking actually boosts the body’s ability to absorb nutrients in many vegetables which are, themselves, an essential part of healthy eating to better manage PCOS symptoms.
Lycopene, which can help fight cancer, is stronger in cooked tomato sauce, for example, than in raw tomatoes. Steaming is a great way to lock-in nutrients in carrots, broccoli and spinach.
But over-boiling causes many nutrients to slip out of the vegetables into the hot water, thus causing the goodness to be lost.
Tip: to retain the most nutrition, always steam, roast or microwave vegetables with as little water as possible and keep the cooking time to a minimum.
