Frozen fruits and vegetables healthy alternative

We buy fresh fruits and vegetables with the hopes that they will make it to our table within a week or so. A lot of times, that doesn’t happen, and we end up tossing them out. While it’s frustrating spending the time, energy and money on groceries that end up in the garbage, stay cool.Surprisingly, frozen fruits and vegetables are just as nutritious as their fresh counterparts, and in some cases, they’re more nutritious. Frozen fruits and vegetables are frozen shortly after harvesting, which retains most of their nutrients. For example, one study showed that frozen green beans and blueberries contained more vitamin C than their fresh counterparts.

This summer, try making a hydrating, nutrient-packed smoothie by combining your favorite fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables in a blender along with milk or Greek yogurt.
