Tip of the Day

When you can't buy fresh, buy frozen! Fruits and veggies that have been frozen for sale are picked at the height of freshness which means they are perfectly ripe and picked while in season. Frozen veggies are often quickly blanched to retain color and are better for you then the canned type. Canned veggies while a little cheaper on the wallet are cooked and then preserved using, well, perservative, meaning different types of salt and other chemicals to keep them fresh. They lack nutrients and lose their flavor because they are cooked before you ever cook them, or rather re-cook them. Moral of the story: buy frozen!
