Are frozen vegetables as good for you as fresh ones?
When frozen right after harvest, vegetables retain a lot of nutritional value. Keep a package or two of frozen vegetables on hand for busy nights or when your favorite vegetable is out of season.
Read labels and look for vegetables that are free of additives, salt or other flavorings (if possible, try to buy low-pesticide, organic or non-GMO). And try to eat a variety of different colors every week - green (spinach or broccoli), yellow (peppers or corn) and orange (squash).
