Ranking of the most nutritious frozen vegetables and fruits

Having frozen veggies and fruits available makes healthy eating cost effective, much easier, and can be more nutritious. As we move into the colder months, gardens fade and farmers markets close. We are left with fewer options for fresh, local produce.

Some vegetables and fruits can actually be more nutritious frozen than fresh because they are picked at their peak ripeness and flash-frozen, preserving their nutrients. Ranked in order, here is a list of vegetables and fruits which are more nutritious frozen than fresh:

1. Spinach

2. Kale

3. Peas

4. Broccoli

5. Blueberries (pick wild blueberries for even more nutrients)

6. Cauliflower

7. Carrots

8. Sweet Corn

9. Bell Peppers

10. Mango

Keep in mind that while frozen vegetables and fruits can be highly nutritious, the quality and nutritional value can also depend on the specific freezing and packaging processes. It's essential to read labels and choose products with no added sugars or preservatives for the healthiest option.

Additionally, incorporating a variety of both fresh and frozen produce into your diet is a great way to ensure you get a wide range of nutrients for optimal health.
