I buy fresh fruits and veggies during season, when they are much cheaper, in bulk and freeze them to use during the cool months. You may have to parboil some, but not all. You won't have raw veggies, but they cook up quite well. I put about 1 c. of a veggie/fruit in one of the cheap, fold-over plastic bags and then put all little bags of the veggie/fruit in a large freezer bag which I label. That way, I only need to take out however much I need on any particular day. Of course, fresh, raw veggies and fruits are the best, but such things, with lots of flavor, aren't always available or are very expensive.
