It is true that cooking harms some nutrients; however, the author of Dining in the Raw (Rita Romano)(one of my favorite cookbooks) worked at the famous hippocratic (sp?) institute and also owned a health food restaurant and makes frequent use of the preesure cooker in the cooked segments of her book, so I think with all her years of learning and reading that this must be a good method of cooking. Dr. Christoper --the "father of modern herbalogy-recommended ways to preserve nutrients in his "School of Natural Healing" of which was to heat boiling water--add grains (preferably soaked) into a thermos then add boiling water and seal. Done at night, cereal grains, brown rice, etc. will be cooked by morning which he says preserves the enzymes so that if the food is planted, it should sprout. This is the goal with the other low-heating methods he recommends. I suppose veggies could be cooked in a thermos the same way (but don't expect them to sprout...haha. Hope this helps.
