Other than different kinds of beans, I can't think of any at all. Eggplant, maybe.

Most root vegetables and gourds are better cooked. Carrots are actually more nutritious cooked. The lycopene in Tomatoes increases by cooking. Foods from the cabbage family are easier to digest if cooked. Although you can eat small quantities raw, like some shredded cabbage in your salad, most couldn't eat large quantities unless it was steamed or cooked in some other way. Think about tradition boiled dinner with potatoes, carrots, turnip, cabbage and onions, and meat of course. Imagine filling up on that without cooking it.

It's interesting that the vegetables that do best cooked are also the vegetables that can be stored through the winter. Summer vegetables, that are often eaten raw, will not survive more than a couple of weeks. The modern global community has distorted that so you can have strawberries year round in all parts of the world.

Haven't had potatoes in ages. Would you recommend boiling young red potatoes (unpeeled) for post-workout? I was contemplating that to supplement the whey shake, but instead throw in a banana and berries.

Cabbage? Never thought of it as useful or anything other than filling up.

Ok, ok. Yer all right, I'm all wrong. Well, partly. I'll give you the spuds. Cooked carrots are disgusting. Tomatoes are fruit.

Crazy? First you accuse me of being against the Scots, now you say I'm crazy? I'm so hurt.

My wife has been making a lot of cabbage-based salads, uses carrots, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, raisins, citrus, nuts, often noodles. Not all at once, but that sort of thing. Really good.

I need a wife

Between cooking and cleaning up after, the actual eating is out-weighed by the effort!

Selecting a wife properly? Well, that's the one thing in life that I have done very well, but I think I got one of the last good ones, so I probably can't help you.

Jennifer, you're posting to old threads with comments that have no thought behind them. I would expect that you're about to get shut down.
