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.

When cooking you burn many vital food nutrients . 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.
