So, which are better and more nutritious- fresh or frozen vegetables?
This may surprise you, but frozen vegetables can often contain even more nutrients than fresh, especially if the fresh veggies have been sitting in your fridge or at the grocery for a few days. Freezing locks in nutrients before they start to deteriorate, keeping the vegetables at their peak.
"Better" is an interpretative term; after all it's hard to beat the taste of fresh picked produce! The ideal way to get the best and most benefits from fresh vegetables is to buy local and produce that is in season. If you aren't sure what's in season in your area, you can find seasonal food guides over at Eat Well Guide.
In short, frozen veggies are just as nutritious as fresh, just-picked produce, so don't pass them up!
