Steamer inserts, pots and various cooking utensils are useful accessories in everyone's kitchen - not only for those who care about a healthy lifestyle. Thanks to these convenient gadgets, you can prepare healthy and tasty meals for the whole family. This is because this way of cooking preserves the maximum amount of vitamins in the vegetables and excludes fat from the food preparation process. By way of comparison, a carrot cooked in water retains 40% of its vitamin C, while one cooked by steaming retains as much as 70%. Eating steamed food is, as a result, a great way to reduce dietary cholesterol and live a fit life!
