Frozen Vs. Fresh vs. Canned Vegetables

spending management saving money managing money frugal living food and groceries
Well, turns out you really do learn something extraordinary every day! As I was cooking beef teryaki tonight at my apartment (using a package of frozen vegetables), I wondered to myself, “Are frozen veggies as nutritious as fresh?”
I then proceeded to go online, and to my shocking dismay, I found out that FROZEN VEGETABLES ARE ACTUALLY HEALTHIER (not to mention cheaper) THAN FRESH VEGGIES. Sounds to good to be true uh? Think again!
In the articles below, it states that since frozen veggies are picked at the peak of ripeness when vitamins are the greatest, they contain much more nutritive properties than the fresh version of the same vegetable. This is due to the fact that fresh veggies are picked before they are ripe and lose a lot of their vitamins to UV exposure and heat on the way to market.
What’s the morale of the story? Find ways to improve the taste of frozen veggies, save money, and be healthier!
