You can buy the most expensive foods and ruin their nutrient density in less than 2 minutes. Did you know that you can ruin the nutrient density in your food by cooking it at too high a temperature? Most cooking temperatures are around 350 degrees Fahrenheit (400-600 degrees in a microwave). According to Jim Marlowe, a top nutritionist at Dr. Joseph Mercola’s Optimal Wellness Center in Chicago, Illinois, the optimal cooking temperature is 225 degrees for proper nutrition. But according to me, the best cooking temp is under 200 degrees to prevent the destruction of vital nutrients. Never boil your food peeps – unless you plan on drinking the juice.
