I am not sure if there really is a reduction of nutrition in frozen vegetables because it all depends how you prepare them and you can have less vitamins in fresh vegetables if you store or cook them too long. Frozen vegetables are also perfect for people who don't have much time to prepare food.

I love the frozen section of the grocery store. I buy frozen fruit--I am a smoothie drinker and the convenience of the steam packs (yes, I know there is a reduction in nutrition) really makes me eat more veggies than we would otherwise. I steer clear of the "sauced" versions and I don't go for frozen dinners, pizzas or pockets anymore.

One of the first things we learn when we start to live a healthier life is to forget about frozen foods and to buy food in the fresh food department instead. But there are exceptions and there are certain foods you can buy frozen without feeling bad about it.

I usually buy spinach (when out of season), broccoli, corn and peas frozen. I really don't like frozen fruits because I think they dont have the same consistency and look of the fresh fruit. They are still great for smoothies though, which I don't make much. I hope every one has a great Sunday. Keep sparking emoticon
