Happy and Healthy New Year to all.
I can safely say that most of us assume that fresher is better - and if you can get locally picked produce or picked from your own garden that is usually true. However, if fresh produce is off season, and it has taken days or weeks to get to your local supermarket, you would probably get more nutrients from a frozen organic variety. Upon my own investigation, I have found that those frozen veggies are frozen within a few hours of being picked, which means they retain their nutrients and flavor. Frozen organic spinach is delicious when you sautee it in pan with sesame oil and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. You can even add fresh mushrooms. Don't overcook the frozen veggies. Some nutrients need only a little heat to release them for digestion so under cooking them is the best way to do it. Too much heat, destroys the nutrients.
