Question: Are Vegetables Better Raw, Juiced, or Cooked?

Answer: It depends on the vegetable, specific diet needs, and the cooking method.

  • Some cooking methods are better than others.  For example, steaming is almost always better than boiling.
  • Juicing is better than raw when increasing the amount of absorbed vitamins is more important to the diet.
  • Raw is better than juicing when increasing the amount of soluble fiber and insoluble fiber is needed.
  • Raw vegetables are more challenging to work into diets than cooked.  In the Origin Nutrition/Precision Nutrition diet we use guacamole, pico de gallo, tabbouleh, muffuletta, french dip made from low fat yogurt as dipping sauces for carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, etc.
  • Cooking vegetables allows for combining of flavors such as the Holy Trinity (peppers, onions, celery) or Mirepoix (celery, carrots, onions), etc.
  • Powdered vegetables are also a great option such as Sun Warrior Ormus Greens (available at Sand & Steel).
  • Cooking vegetables kills the bacteria and fungus that might be in your raw vegetables.
