I am a student at the University of Arizona. I am studying Nutritional Science, and I make nutrition and physical activity a normal part of my daily routine. I love to run, road cycle, and play volleyball, soccer, frisbee, etc. I just love being outdoors. It's where I feel the most alive!

Hi Ashley:) I just read your post on Green Smoothie's stating that freezing fruit destroys nutrients. I was concerned about this and looked it up. This is what I found.
"Frozen fruits and vegetables retain their nutrients almost as well as their fresh counterparts, provided they are quick-frozen, packed in airtight containers and kept frozen during shipping and at the market. Any kind of processing destroys some vitamins. But fresh foods also lose vitamins, especially if they are not properly handled, or if they sit in the market or your refrigerator too long. If vegetables are quick-frozen on site immediately after harvesting, they may have more vitamins than fresh ones transported from distant states or other countries." This is from Berkeley Wellness... Since you are studying nutrition, I would like to hear more on this topic as it is a concern - especially for frozen fruit smoothie lovers. Thanks so much:)
