Why Frozen Fruit And Veggies May Be Better For You Than Fresh

Going frozen means you can enjoy your favorite berries or peaches during wintertime. It also means less spoilage, allowing you to enjoy produce when it’s close to its nutritional best — that is, whenever you decide to consume it. In fact, research has revealed that frozen fruits and vegetables can have just as many vitamins &m...
