Main Question or Discussion Point

Is there an advantage to eating cooked food? I'm asking this in terms of nutrition and what your metabolism does and not in the aspect of taste or killing diseases.

Basically do you get the same calories and vitamins with a cooked piece of food as oppose to its raw form?

It depends on what it is. Some vegetables like collard greens have very little nutriitional value raw.

Because of the strong cell structure of the greens more vitamins and minerals are released after being cooked. This is because cooking breaks down the cells and releases the nutrients.
