A Micro-Retraction and Sous Vide

October 25, 2009

In my new book Strong Kids Healthy Kids I stated that microwaving foods damages nutrients and thus should be avoided.

Well, the hard, cold fact is ALL cooking methods damage some nutrients and the microwave is not really any better or worse than any other method of cooking when considering how to cook for preserving nutrient content.

I admit that my investigation into the subject was not as thorough as it should have been.  In reading several websites and papers on the subject, I sort of deluded myelf into thinking that the microwave was far worse than other methods of cooking foods and virtually destroyed all of the nutrients within.

I was wrong.

That said, you have got to  try the Sous Vide method of cooking. My co-authors Drs. Michael and MaryDan Eades have developed this home sized version machine. I was invited to a tasting event the other day and the food was just awesome. Moist, perfectly cooked scrambled eggs,  salmon to die for the vegetables….wow.

I’m not wrong about this!
