Fresh is Best, but . . . .

The rhyming continues!! As all of you know I am a huge advocate of eating fresh fruits and vegetables. But, we all know that sometimes fresh fruits and vegetables are just not easily available.

The good news is that frozen vegetables are a good substitute:

This time of year I always keep my freezer stocked with frozen, organic vegetables so that I can whip up a meal in a pinch. In Summer and Fall there's so much good local produce around that I don't have to eat frozen vegetables, but this time of year I find that a bag of frozen, organic peas is better than no veggies at all.


  1. I'm not sure why, but I'm not fond of most frozen vegetables, especially the combinations, and keep only a few on hand. Generally, I use them in soups or stews, but never as a side dish.

  2. I do pretty much the same thing. They get whipped up into pasta or rice but never served alone.
