If you had asked me this a few years back I would have probably laughed in your face or thought you might be joking or something and this is without even going to the organic subject.
Since having little C, I have been wanting to know more about what is necessary to feed our mouths without changing our current lifestyle completely. So there I was looking for ways to educate myself more about what is really good to feed ourselves. I have read a lot on the internet but seemed like the more I read the more confusing it got so I kind of slowed that down and decided I’d go for an NHS nutrition course which was a good start to get the basics engraved in my head.
So back to veggies, the day hit when our tutor started mentioning that frozen veg are a very good alternative to fresh ones and I needed to have a one-to-chat about this as I could have never substituted fresh with frozen, you kidding me?! Good on him, he managed to explain to me/convince me that they are no harm at all and actually they can contain higher levels of vitamins and antioxidants.
I went along with that advice and now we happily stock our freezer with frozen veg so we are never caught up without any veggies. We like to keep the basics stocked up in freezer such as carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and peas then for the occasional spinach, beetroots, marrows, aubergines, peppers, mushrooms and the list goes on… we just buy them fresh on the day. On the side we keep a good stock of fresh potatoes and onions since they can last longer.
Do you include veg in all of your meals? Is it still a big no-no for frozen veg for you? We’d love to know all about your veggie thoughts and very open to learn from you as well. Send us your comments below.
