Keeping it raw

IMG_20140623_132424The way we prepare and cook ingredients can have a dramatic effect on the nutritional composition of the final meal.  Fruit and vegetables for example, are best eaten in their raw state, retaining valuable vitamins and minerals that may be lost through cooking.   The nutrient content of fruit and vegetables also begins to diminish as soon as they are harvested, so ideally you should try to only buy the quantities you really need for the next few meals.  Fresh locally sourced goods will also be superior to those that have been imported, so remember to check the labels for the origin of your goods, or use your local greengrocer and, remember that organic is always best!
