A common concern when trying to switch to a more healthful diet is the expenses of fruits and vegetables. Frozen fruits and vegetables can be a great alternative to fresh for 4 reasons
- they are less expensive (especially if you catch them on sale!)
- when they are on sale, you can stock up without worrying about spoilage
- they are usually frozen at peak freshness*
- since they keep longer, it’s much easier to keep a variety of frozen fruits & vegetables on hand for spontaneous meal additions
*Produce loses nutrients the longer it sits on supermarket (or refrigerator) shelves. By freezing shortly after these plants are picked, more nutrition is reserved for you to eat!
