I just nuked a purple sweet potato from Safeway for about 3 minutes. I put some butter on it and it was pretty good, and it was actually a very rich dark purple color. Just wondering if all the antioxidants and micronutrients get destroyed by cooking them, whether they be microwaved, fried, baked,e tc?

Cooking only destroys the vitaminc C. The other nutrients actually becomes more available, due to the breakdown of the cellular walls during the cooking process. Lemons, oranges, kiwis and guavas are high in vitamin C, if you are concerned.
