Today, our attention is focused more than in the past on the quality of the food we bring to the table. We tend to underestimate or ignore the important fact that we sometimes eat the wrong way of eating certain foods. All healthy foods are asparagus, bananas, milk, and peas, but we often do not eat them properly and end up missing their nutrients.
1. Flax seeds
Flax seeds contain protein, omega-3, lignans, and phytonutrients that are all beneficial to the body. However, when they are eaten whole, our bodies are unable to digest them. Therefore, before they are ingested, they should be crushed so that they do not lose their beneficial properties.
In the microwave, asparagus should never be cooked, even if there is little time to cook. It depletes this vegetable’s vitamin C content because the nutrient is soluble in water. The best way to cook asparagus stalks is to steam or fry them to make them tender and crispy.
Kiwi skins have a high nutrient concentration, particularly fiber, folate and vitamin E. The intake of an entire SunGold kiwifruit (including the skin) increases the amount of protein, vitamin E and folate by 50%, 32%, and 34%. Eating kiwis with the skin on is one easy way to boost your intake, as many people do not consume enough of these nutrients in their diets.
Tomatoes are among the foods that need to be cooked so that nutrients such as lycopene can be used to protect against tumors and heart disease. When you heat the tomatoes up to about 194 ° F, the nutrients increase.
