Trammell's Health & Fitness Tips - Health, Fitness, Nutrition & Training Tips to Keep you Healthy and Motivated
While frozen vegetables such as broccoli, carrots and spinach often get a bad rap, it's a good idea to keep your freezer packed them during the winter months.
Nutritionally speaking, frozen vegetables often have a leg up on their out of season fresh counterparts. That is because frozen produce is harvested at peak ripeness, a time when the veggies are at their most nutrient dense and flavorful. The subsequent flash freezing within the first 24 hours of harvest locks vegetables into a nutrient and antioxidant rich state.
Fresh vegetables grown far from your supermarket, on the other hand, may lose considerable amounts of nutrients during transport and storage. So frozen veggies are an easy way to add a vegetable boost to soups, stir fries and scrambled eggs.
For the best flavor and texture, it's better to steam veggies instead of boiling them.
