OK for most BUT...: Many people eat only raw vegetables (and raw food) for health benefits, but many nutrients in vegetables are better absorbed when cooked (esp. if boiled or steamed) while others are degraded by cooking.

Does broiling vegetable destroy the nutrients? Talking about vegetables like zucchini, squash, pepper. If i broil them about 10 minutes, will the nutrients be intact?
Does not destroy: Broiling does not destroy the nutrients in vegetables, but it diminishes them. Broiling is an easy way to consume vegetables with minimal fat, which is a great idea.

No laws!: Juicing is like any other cooking. There are no strict rules. Tons of suggestions though online about what mixes well together and what does not. There's a lot of fat in avocado.

Doctor suggested to take tomato, sweet potato, broccoli to keep skin young and charm but do I need to take these in cooked state or uncooked state?Thx.
It depends: Raw food advocates would advise raw tomato & broccoli, which is ok, but cooking lightly may increase absorption of nutrients. Saute tomatoes over low heat in olive oil to increase absorption of lycopene. Slice broccoli into small pieces, sprinkle with lemon juice, let sit for 5 min. Then steam for 3 minutes- see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=george&dbid=64 bake sweet potato thoroughly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
