healthy ways to cook vegetables- lower your risk of a hearth attack

The researchers found that people who eat a diet high in fried foods, salty snacks, eggs and meat --- had a 35 percent greater risk of having a heart attack than people who consumed little or no fried foods or meat.

People who ate a "Prudent Diet" -- high in leafy green vegetables, other raw and cooked vegetables, and fruits -- had a 30 percent lower risk of heart attack than those who ate little or no fruit and veg, the study showed.

Cooked vegetables lose vitamins, minerals, colors and flavors if not cooked properly. Here are some fast and healthy ways to cook vegetables.

Steaming is fast, preserves nutrients, and it works best for fresh and frozen vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, spinach and roots like beets, parsnips, peas and beans. If you don't have a steaming basket, you can fill a pot with mixed vegetables and add about 1 1/2 inches of unsalted water and cover. Simmer until the vegetables are tender. Check often to make sure that the water doesn't evaporate. If it gets too low, just add a little more water. Don't forget to keep the remaining broth for soup or do what I do, pour it in a nice mug and enjoy the warm flavorful broth.

Roasting is quick, simple, and is an excellent way for cooking vegetables as it preserves the vitamins, flavors and minerals. In a large bowl, cover sliced vegetables with olive oil. Add garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Place them on a cookie sheet and roast them at 350 degrees until tender.

Stir- frying
Stir-frying is another very good flavor and color preserving cooking method. Sliced vegetables are put in frying pan covered at bottom with any liquid for cooking such as chicken broth or a broth made from stir-fry seasonings. Constantly stir the vegetables until they are crispy and glossy.

As most of the ways I described are based on waterless cooking as it reduces cooking time, makes cooking easy, easy clean of cooking ware and most of all no loss of nutrient in juices of vegetable giving more flavor to food.

Vegetables can also be cooked by the steam produced by their own vegetable juices. In a fry pan, add a little olive oil, sliced vegetables and your favorite seasonings. Cover the pan, put it on medium heat, and within 5-8 minutes you’ll have spicy and crispy vegetables. Stir often. Panning works best for carrots, beans, summer squash and shredded cabbage.

Roach said " We are not going to win by decision, we are going to knock out Oscar Dela Hoya".

Boxing writers are saying the odds are against Manny Pacquaio of knocking down Oscar Dela Hoya . However, famed Pacquiao trainer, Freddie Roach, firmly believes that the Filipino icon would knockout the bigger De La Hoya on their mega match on Dec. 6 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“Without a doubt. We are not going to win by decision, we are going to knock this guy out. In history, guys that go up in weight classes and then come back down, get knocked out. Roy Jones Jr, Sugar Ray Leonard, guys like that. We will be a strong 147 pounds, and I love this fight,” a confident Roach said.

“Pound-for-pound, he’s the greatest right now. We should get Ricky Hatton next, and then if Floyd wants to come back, we can look at that because Floyd is the best fight for us,” he said. “Floyd is a great fighter, and has a whole different style than the other fighters. Manny’s best fighting weight is at 140 pounds, were going to 147 for Oscar because of the opportunity. A win over De La Hoya makes him a super star, and sets up the Ricky Hatton fight. A Mayweather fight would be at a catch weight. We like 140, he likes 147, so lets meet somewhere in the middle. Let’s see what happens.”
