This podcast was inspired by a question from one of my followers on Instagram: “does the nutritional value of food change based on how it’s cooked?”

For example, you may have heard that boiled or steamed vegetables leak nutrients out into the water. Or you may have heard that roasting food can actually boost nutrient absorption.

So, do you need to consider cooking methods when meal prepping? How can you make food as nutritious as it can possibly be? Are there any other considerations in terms of how to cook your food?
