ColdRain- Eating vegetables is good for you, no matter if they are cooked or raw. However, eating certain raw vegetables is often better than eating cooked vegetables. Raw vegetables are fresh and unprocessed and therefore have the maximum health benefits. Certain types of cooking methods can draw nutrients out of the vegetables and leave them in the water or the oil that they are being cooked in.
If you are eating raw vegetables, you will want to make sure that you fully clean them. Run them under cool water for at least a couple of seconds to remove any pesticides or dirt.
