Fresh of Frozen?

27 Nov

In the winter, i always fancy something warm at night and the healthiest and easiest thing that comes to mind that feels like “real food” for a light dinner are boiled vegetables.

beans, carrots, peas and corn. easy, quick and delicious.

they’re always there in the freezer and all you have to do is boil them.

but are frozen vegetables actually healthy and do they still contain all the nutrients?

 

There was a small paragraph about it in my biology book and i was really surprised by what i read so i decided to find out more.

 

well, after some research i was pleasantly surprised to find out that frozen vegetables actually have more nutrients than fresh ones! (which was what i originally read in my science book)

 

the frozen vegetables are processed at their peak ripeness, so they have the most nutrients at the time, once they’re frozen these nutrients will be preserved.

fresh or canned fruits on the other hand, will go bad and loose their nutrients in the transportation process and by the time you consume them.

 

fresh fruits and vegetables are also picked up and shipped before they are fully ripe and therefore don’t contain as much nutrients.

 

so frozen fruits and vegetables are just as good, and especially for winter they can come in really handy when you need something warm to fill you up. i also personally feel that when you have a small portion of boiled vegetables you automatically feel full (i just scoffed down a cup while writing this blogpost ;p ) and you don’t feel the need to go to the fridge every 5 minuets waiting for something indulging to munch on.
