I used to feel bad about eating frozen veggies vs. fresh veggies, until I learned that frozen veggies can actually be better for you and contain more nutrients! I hate cooked peas but frozen peas as a snack is delicious!
Frozen fruits/veggies are picked at their prime time when their nutritional values have fully developed and frozen right away. Fresh fruits/veggies are picked beore they are fully ripe so they do not grow to have as much nutrients. They are picked then shipped and sit in the store until bought.

I try to make a bag of frozen veggies with every dinner. I eat the veggies first, before moving on to any other food. After I'm done with a bag of veggies I am almost full, and therefore I don't eat too much of anything else. Pig out on the veggies, and then you won't be able to pig out on the dessert and other fattening foods!
