Eat More Vegetables Challenge Day 8: Skip the Chopping with This Underutilized Vegetable
By Gretel H. Schueller, July 1, 2013 - 10:13am
Make vegetable prep easier by using frozen produce. It may even be healthier than fresh. Frozen vegetables are processed at their peak ripeness, a time when—as a general rule—they are most nutrient-packed. Freezing locks in all that fresh-picked nutrition and flavor. Plus, it doesn’t get any easier: washed and typically prechopped, frozen vegetables can literally go straight from freezer to pot. And they can be stored for long periods of time, ready and waiting for you.
