I use frozen fruit most of the time. It is like eating ice cream.

Good reminder. Epically now that we are hitting winter, the fresh fruits and veggies might not be around.

Don’t Give Frozen Foods The Cold Shoulder

Frozen fruits and vegetables have gotten a bad rap over the years. Many people think that because they're frozen, they have no nutritional value, and that fresh produce is better for you. Well, that's simply not the case; in fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Agriculture compared fresh fruits and vegetables with their frozen counterparts and found that the nutrient profiles were practically identical — and in some cases, certain vitamin and mineral levels were higher in the frozen foods!

Because frozen fruits and veggies are flash-frozen immediately after they're harvested, the foods are essentially frozen in time, along with the good stuff — from A to Zinc. Here are a few other reasons fruits and veggies are just as good on ice:

* They're convenient: Fresh vegetables require cleaning and chopping. Frozen veggies, on the other hand, are usually ready to go and just need heating — either to make a side dish or to be part of your main course.

* You might save a buck: You rarely have to throw out frozen fruits or vegetables because of spoilage, the way you do with fresh ones — most frozen produce can stay in your freezer for weeks.

* 'Tis the season: When it comes to fresh produce, you're usually bound by the seasons. You might not be able to find a perfectly ripe mango or pineapple during the winter or fall — unless you head over to the frozen aisle.

If you haven't checked out the frozen aisle of your supermarket, your challenge is to pick up some frozen produce today!
