Vegetables should be bought fresh. They should either be eaten raw, baked or lightly cooked.  There are certain vegetables that should never be cooked like the avocado, cucumber and especially the tomatoes (since cooking will make them very acidic and will destroy their nutritional value whereas when eaten raw they are very alkaline and beneficial for the body).  Never use cucumber and tomato for toasted or grilled sandwiches.
