Easy Health: Why Microwaving Your Veggies Is Better Than Boiling

by Leigh Ann Otte

Rumor has it that boiling leeches nutrients from vegetables. Steaming is better. But is that true?

Registered dietitian Janel Ovrut says yes. But steaming’s not the only way to preserve those nutrients. Microwaving and stir-frying are great options too.

She explains more in this week’s feature article, including how to steam if you don’t have a steamer, and whether you need to worry about the fat in stir-frying.

What’s your favorite way to prepare vegetables? What do you think is the tastiest?
