Cooked foods are actually easier for your body to absorb. Vegetables cooked in water may lose some of their nutrients, but that cooking water is a great base for sauces and soups.
In fact only about 10% of nutrients are lost through cooking while cooking the food releases other nutrients for our use. Tomatoes, apples, peas and corn are a few vegetables that are better for us when they are cooked..
Cooked food may be good for us but cooking up trouble is quite another.
Riffraff and rascals talk out of both sides of their mouths. They wink at each other, they shuffle their feet, they cross their fingers behind their backs. Their perverse minds are always cooking up something nasty, always stirring up trouble. (Proverbs 6:12b-14, MSG)
Prayer- Father God, help us put our cooking skills to good cooking not the cooking up of sin that gets us nothing but trouble. Amen.
