11 Ways to Boost Nutrients
Healthy foods like fruits and vegetables contain vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytochemicals—all of which benefit our health. As health-conscious shoppers, we are more apt to fill our grocery carts with wholesome foods. But various things like the way foods are prepared or whether they contain added preservatives can affect their nutritional content. While buying healthful ingredients to make meals is a good start, there are some things that we can do to maximize the nutrients in the food that we eat.
In both my upcoming book, The Gene Therapy Plan, which will be published on April 21 by Viking, and YouTube video series, I provide tips on the best ways to prepare food that boosts its nutritional value. These tips, however, are simply recommendations, not prescriptions on how you should always cook or combine specific food items. Although these tips are helpful, your goal is to eat healthy food prepared in ways that you and your family can enjoy.
