Are boiled vegetables healthy?

Dr. Wald’s answer: ”Boiled vegetables should certainly be part of a balanced diet, but by virtue of them being boiled, have lost a great deal of their nutritional content. The B-complex vitamins and minerals have been partially boiled out and can be found in the water used to boil the vegetables in (drink that stuff!).  Rice and wheat contains a different set of nutrition compared to boiled vegetables (and some nutritional content in common) – so, rice and wheat cannot, in and of themselves, be substituted for with boiled vegetables.  Having said this, a person can certainly survive without every eating rice and wheat foods. From a fiber point of view vegetables (boiled) can substitute for rice and/or wheat containing foods.”  Check out Dr. Wald’s nutritional products at: especially Reds Protect, Green’s Detox and Longevity Complete.
