A carton of apple juice is a healthy substitute for a Coke
Apple juice seems so innocent that we easily believe it to be healthier than ’harmful’ Coke. In fact, apple juice contains a few more calories than Coke.
If you really care about your diet, drink clear water and discard both packaged juices and soft drinks.
Fresh vegetables are healthier than cooked ones
It turns out that some boiled veggies are better than fresh ones. For example, boiled carrots contain more carotenoids, while stewed or steamed tomatoes have more lycopene, which is good for your health.
This doesn’t mean you should only eat cooked vegetables, but don’t be in a hurry to discard them.
