Nutritionist reveals why you should NEVER boil your vegetables

As hard as we try, it can be difficult to eat your five-a-day, everyday.

But even if you do achieve this goal, your diet is probably still not as healthy as it could be.

And that's all down to the way many of us cook our veggies - which can ruin the health benefits that are otherwise contained in our favourite superfoods.

So if you're boiling your vegetables, stop at once.

Cooking them in this way could be eradicating up to 50 per cent of the vegetable's nutrients, according to nutritionist Tracy Lesht.

She told Shape magazine that certain vegetables, namely those containing water-soluble vitamins, should never be boiled if you can avoid it.

That includes cabbage, spinach, kale, broccoli, spinach, beans, and peas.
