Why It's a Must Have: Think you have to spend more on fresh produce to reap the nutritional benefits? Think again! Frozen veggies may actually be even more nutritious than their fresh counterparts, says Palinski. “Frozen vegetables are picked at the peak of ripeness and flash frozen, which may allow them to maintain nutrients even more so then fresh vegetables (due to the travel time, oxidation, etc).”
Budget Bonus: Stick with store brands to save on frozen items, and Palinski recommends stocking up when items are on sale since frozen veggies can last for months in the freezer.
