ARE FROZEN VEGETABLES BETTER THAN FRESH?

People often ask:

  • Are frozen vegetables a good option?
  • How can I get my family to eat more fruits and vegetables?
  • Is there a more budget-friendly way to get organic vegetables?

Well, it turns out that frozen organic fruits and vegetables are a brrrrrr-illiant better nutrition answer, but people still are questioning…

If frozen is better, why the confusion? Marketing efforts providing nutrition “tips” are partially to blame. We are told that the ready to eat produce in the grocery store, or even a farmer’s market is always “fresher” than the ones in the frozen aisle. This is really an unfair statement on the freshness of frozen fruit and veggies.

HERE ARE JUST SOME OF THE REASONS FROZEN IS A BRILLIANT & BETTER NUTRITION CHOICE:

1) They last longer
If I have it in my freezer it means it’s more likely to go into my body and keep me from wasting produce I don’t get around to eating right away.

2) They are season-less
I do love eating berries all year long, but I can either grow, pick and freeze them in the summer or I can buy frozen and know that they are freshly delicious as part of any fall or winter recipe. then see how frozen produce and spices can help you all enjoy your rainbow.

3) Frozen helps make organic more affordable
I buy frozen organic produce in bulk at a lower cost than ready-to-eat and that means more organic, more often, and less toxins, more often. A definite health “win!”

4) Frozen helps me get in a better variety
I don’t want the same greens every day, nor does my family or guests, so I keep different organic greens, fruits, and veggies in the freezer so I have options to please everyone.

5) Frozen is fresh, often even fresh-ER
Frozen produce is frozen right away. That means it doesn’t have to survive long travel to get to you or days sitting out in the store. I know that companies and stores manage this so your ready-to-eat is fresh, but remember your frozen is a fresh bet.

My Guide to Organic helps you learn more about which items you should choose organic more often. Definitely berries, apples, greens, and peppers.
