Frequently Asked Questions

Should you soak potatoes first before cooking them?

Soaking washed, peeled, and cut potatoes in cold water overnight removes excess starch, greatly reducing carbohydrate content. But this prevents the potatoes from sticking together and changes the consistency if you mash them. For fluffier mashed potatoes, you should only soak them in cold for a few minutes so that the potatoes are not so gluey.

Is spinach less healthy when cooked?

Studies say that consuming cooked spinach, instead of raw, gives higher levels of Vitamin A and Vitamin E, fiber, calcium, iron, thiamin, and zinc. Other nutrients such as lutein, and beta-carotene also turn more absorbable.
