Winter can be a tough time to find fresh fruits and vegetables at a reasonable price, depending on where you live (I’m in the Chicago are and its below freezing as I write this, so nothing is growing here right now except ice patches).
Frozen fruits and vegetables can be an acceptable alternative,m providing you don’t buy offerings that have any added salt, fat and sugar. avoid frozen veggies in sauces, for example.
The Food Network has a handy slide show of 10 Frozen Foods Nutritionists Always Buy.
I think that headline might be a bit of hype, it’s difficult for me to imagine nutritionists saying they want frozen potato wedges, for example. But items like frozen peas, frozen broccoli and even frozen edamame (assuming it has no added salt) are perfectly acceptable, nutrition-wise, to help you make it through the wold.
