Many times I mention that eating RAW veggies and things like garlic are more beneficial.

However, there are three that become MORE nutritious when COOKED.
Tomatoes
Broccoli
Carrots

Quote:[*]Processed tomatoes (cooked into a paste, sauce or stewed) as well as canned varieties are the richest known sources of lycopene. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant (a compound that blocks the action of free radicals that can damage cells causing ageing, cell and organ damage leading to most illnesses) scientifically proven to prevent and treat many cancers including prostate, lung, stomach, bladder, cervix and skin, among others. Deep red tomatoes have more lycopene and overall antioxidant activity than yellow, gold or green tomatoes.
[*]Tomato paste is the most concentrated form of processed tomatoes and has up to 10 times more lycopene than raw tomatoes (verified by studies).
[*]The heat applied during the processing makes the lycopene changes its structure and become more available for the body to absorb and utilise.
[*]Quite often cooked tomatoes have much more flavour than typical supermarket ones which are usually picked unripe and then stored losing much of the flavour and nutritional value in the process.
[*]Tomatoes used by the food industry for canning are picked when red-ripe and they are usually processed within a short period of time. Therefore their flavour and nutrients are largely preserved.

When growing your own tomatoes, put about a tablespoon of baking soda around the base of your plants when they start setting and growing fruit about once a month - it will make the tomatoes super sweet.
Works for cucumbers too.......
I've often felt that dreams are answers to questions we haven't yet figured out how to ask.
