I think that to boil is better that to fry. Frying is with oil that is not so healthy. Boiled food is much better and healthy. What do you think about?

I think that to boil food is better too but some oils are pretty good and some fat is necessary in the diet. Olive & Canola Oils are what I like to use.

Hi as2006! I completely agree with you that boiled food is much better and healthier than fried foods. However, there are times that I still love to eat fried foods. Maybe, once in awhile it is alright to eat fried foods somehow. haha.. Take Care and God Bless! Happy Mylotting!

I agree with you and so does my stomach. Everytime I eat something fried my stomach gives me a hard time I guess b/c I try to stay away from it as much as I can. All that extra greasey fat that stays on whatever food you fried isn't good for you.

Well, having grown up in the Southern U.S, frying is the way of life and I find it much tastier though much less healthy. Now, I don't get much fried and my wife opts for baking foods more often than not. We usually only boil foods like chicken when it is to be combined such as chicken and rice.

Fried foods are loaded with fat no matter what kind of fat you use. This can lead to alot of problems from being over weight to clogged arteries. Stream foods are your best bet because less of the nutrients are loss in the water and remain in the food.

I do think that boiling is healthier than frying but some fats are healthier than others. Our bodies require a certain amount of fat in our diet. I prefer to use Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Canola Oils.

My mom has done my cooking since January and it's all grilled, baked or boiled. I lived with my dad before that and everything was always fried. I'm so much healthier now than I was then. I never thought that I would like bacon that wasn't dripping in oil!

Boiling is best btw the two, but there is also healthy oils out there too, some help lower your cholesterol too. When I do fry I use the healthy smart one( i think its called) anyways its got Omega3 in it. Canola, olive oil and soy i think. I could look it up laters right now im not too much awake only got two hours sleep, sorry. Lish

i know boiling is probably better for you but there's some things u can't beat fried, such as good ol' southern fried chickem. catfish, etc. i'd rather bake meat than boil it most of the time. greetings from tennessee.

i know that frying is not a very healthy way to cook. but i just can't resist the taste of fried food, especially fried chicken wings. i can't think of another way of doing chicken wings that taste just as good. boiling is definitely healthier but it also depend on the kind of food. do bear in mind that all the water soluble vitamins are in the water if you boil. so if you throw away the water after boiling, there goes all the goodness too. and it's good to include oil in your meal if you boil all your food as our body cannot absorb the oil soluble vitamins if there's no oil at all. cheers.

We just bought a new kind of cooker that bakes in a way that the food tastes a bit like fried but without all the oil and is has the nice moistness of boiled food. It is called an infrared oven and it is smaller and prettier and easier to clean than an old-fashioned oven. It does not make the kitchen hot, and several different kinds of food can be cooked in it at the same time with each keeping its unique flavor. http://www.nextag.com/infrared-ovens/products-html This kind of oven costs much less to buy, too, and less electricity to run. They make them in a conventional shape, but I like the round white ones best. They are extremely light-weight and you can see exactly what is cooking without having to peer into a flat little window.

I agree, boiling is very good for health. But frying is tastier. Don't you agree that fried meat/ egg/ fish/ veggies are tastier than boiled ones? Cheers and happy mylotting

Boiled food is a lot healthier, but fried food is so much nicer! I don't have it very often but I really like fried breakfast food like fried eggs, bread, tomatoes, mushrooms and beans. I also like boiled eggs though and boiled vegetables, especially peas!

hmm between the two boiling is better but if you ask me if you boil anything too much like vegetables.. the veggies lose their nutrients and you just throw away the water where the nutrients are in. grilling is better, just some light grilling. it's good in almost anything from meat to vegetables... steamed or baked is healthier too.

There are far more other options to cooking than boiling your food. Broiling, grilling and if you use a cooking spray such as pam olive oil you are adding nearly no fat but can still get a good sizzle and caramelized season on your food.

I like my fish grilled with a good fish seasoning blackened or tony's. It is better for you than frying. I like a good fish stew also.

I agree that boiling is much healthier but I prefer fried foods. I like the crispy taste of fried shrimp, french fries and onion rings. I do like the fatter fries with bar-b-que sauce.

I agree that frying is not the healthiest way to prepare food. We usually try to steam or roast vegetables because I don't care for the boiled veggie taste. There are some things that wouldn't taste right if they were boiled instead of fried, such as french fries or doughnuts. I still eat those, but only occasionally as a treat.
