After I started my get taller thread I went on a lower carb diet. Having about 1-5 servings of grain products. No junk food so far except for 1 donut. Anyways I decided to purchase some fresh vegetables to make salad. I found that eating salad it made me a fuller sort of feeling kind of like eating meat/cheese but not really. I assume because raw vegetables take longer to digest than cooked as cooking softens the vegetables. Since cooking softens the vegetables it should be easier to digest and therefore maybe even healthier than cooked vegetables. If the water is used in a soup from cooked vegetables would the nutrients be nearly as much as fresh vegetables or would the nutrients evaporate/disappear?
