As a dietitian, I don't necessarily agree with the content in the shared link.
While there is some nutrient loss for certain vitamins---cooking can actually enhance absorption of some phytochemicals, etc.

Bottom line...eat veggies, in a variety of ways.
prepare/serve veggies in a way that you enjoy them.
If using some water in the preparation---save it to use for a soup, stew, smoothie, etc.

Just eat your veggies (fresh, cooked, frozen, canned) and enjoy!

There is some loss, but steaming is better than other cooking methods.

Here's some good information:

Okay, so I've heard many times over the internet that cooking and/or steaming veggies kill the vitamins and nutrients - Is this true?
