Unless it’s the peak season for specific fresh vegetables, you might even be better off with frozen vegetables, as far as flavors are concerned. Tomatoes, lettuces, and cucumbers don’t freeze well but most other vegetables do.
They’re good for you, too. Nutritionists have found that frozen vegetables are comparably nutritious to fresh.
Fiona B. Lewis, DrPH, MS, RDN, LDN, chef, and founder of LLBJ Culinary and Wellness Enterprises LLC and Chef Enthusiast previously explained to INSIDER that vegetables destined to be frozen are picked at a time when their nutrition and freshness is optimal making them a nutritious alternative to their fresh counterparts.
Bon Appetit even went out on a limb and said they think frozen peas might even be better than fresh peas most of the time.
Plus, since they’re usually already cut, they’re ready for you to use when you’re too busy and tired to deal with cutting up fresh vegetables.
So get some frozen chopped spinach and class up your mac and cheese — it’ll taste good and be more nutritious.
