Vitamin C is an important nutrient which easily gets destroyed upon cooking. So we should take care not to cook fruits that often, and avoid overcooking vegetables like broccoli, a staggering 34% loss due to steaming and boiling. Pressure cooked and microwaved eatables should be preferred as 90% of the nutrients are retained. 
Proteins from pulses, vitamin B from potatoes and Vitamin E from animal fat follow the same pattern.

Overcooking kills those essential nutrients.Also washing vegetables before cooking also leads to washage of many iberals with water.Proteins from pulsesalso get easily destroyed one excess heat.Food containing Vitamin B from potatoes also get easily destroyed .Also cooking food in microwave introduces harmful microwave waves that harm food nutrients.
