And just drink lots of water. Drink like 1.5oz before every meal or something. Most people are dehydrated.
more like 16-32 oz of water, and nutrients are not lost while cooking chicken, that's nonsensical. Vegetables are the only food you need to worry about losing nutrients while cooking. Some vitamins (specifically water soluble) such as vitamin c, thiamin and folic acid are succeptable to being destroyed by high cooking temperatures. Personally when I cook veggies I steam them or or enjoy them raw(NOT boiling them.)
On the topic of healthy recipes here's a sandwich i've been digging on lately:
8 slices of rustic bread
1 1/2 pounds of bacon (about 24 slices), cooked
1 ripe firm-ripe avocado
1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
2 medium size tomatoes, halved and sliced thin
6 tablespoons (1/4 stick) of unsalted butter, room temperature
1 bunch or 1/4 cup of arugula, cleaned and trimmed
1/2 garlic clove
3 tablespoons of finely grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon of pine nuts
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook bacon in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until crisp. Using tongs, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain.
To make the pesto butter: Combine butter, arugula, garlic, Parmesan and pine nuts in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process until blended. Set aside. Salt and pepper to taste.
Halve, pit, and peel avocado, then slice lengthwise. Gently toss slices with lemon juice.
Spread a thin layer of pesto across each slice of bread. Layer with tomato, bacon and avocado and top with a slice of bread with pesto
