Nutrition and Healthy Eating
Eating the rainbow ensures that you are getting a variety of fruits and vegetables that keep your body healthy and strong. But sometimes fresh food isn’t always an option. Frozen produce is usually less expensive and you don’t have to worry about spoiling before you get to eat it.
Here are some of the best and most nutritious options to eat the frozen rainbow:
• berries and cherries are much more affordable when you buy them frozen. Use them in smoothies, add them to your favorite yogurt, or as a snack straight from the freezer!
• green veggies, like broccoli, beans, edamame, or brussel sprouts are a great frozen option and are often easier to prepare than their fresh counterparts. Pop them in the microwave or sauté them for a nutritious side dish for dinner.

• mixed veggies are an easy addition to lots of meals – steam them or use them in soups,
