"any time you cook a vegetable it loses it's vitamins"
I laughed my ass off internally until I saw the gaggle of faces around her widen their eyes and go "REALLY??"
No you dumb cow, cooking a vegetable does not strip it of it's vitamin content. It does not become a vitaminless tasteless mash of goo with no nutritional value once you apply heat to it. It's ok to cook your vegetables. Since most people steam, boil, or microwave vegetables they retain most of their nutritional value so ALL IS WELL IN VEGETABLE LAND. It's ok. Constrict your pupils.
Also? Newsflash guys...unless you're buying your vegetables fresh - they're already slightly cooked, or blanched.
For the record, if you're looking to strip your vegetables of most of your vitamins, bake them to dryness since a lot of the content is water soluble, or just fry them because fried food is FUCKING DELICIOUS.
I love this stupid hipster vegan or whatever raw food OMG HEAT KILLS VITAMINS line of thought...no idiots it actually kills bacteria so cook your shit...you don't have Celiac disease you probably have a fucking parasite
Btw, I fucking hate working with you and I hope you choke on a raw carrot.
