Thank you for the raw food info. I've never been interested in this diet but I have a friend who has made a religion of it and she preaches it to everyone. It is not enjoyable to eat with her. She talked a woman into going on a raw diet, even sent her to one of those expensive raw spas, said chemo would kill the woman. Within a short time, not having chemo, leaving the tumor and eating raw she died.

Vegetables cooked in water and drained vs vegetables cooked in soup. Enzymes, etc, that leach out during cooking are retained in the broth?

Peeled vs unpeeled (washed only), i.e. carrots and potatoes. I cook unpeeled in my soups.

During a span of a few years during our childhood, our mother insisted that we eat liver at least once a week.
Didn't like it then and still don't. Since it is still being sold in grocery stores, I would like to know if there are
any benefits to adding liver to one's diet. Thanks.
