Do Frozen Fruits and Vegetables Cost Less and Last Longer?

Frozen fruits and vegetablesFresh or frozen fruits and vegetables? This is a question that many households face when creating their weekly grocery list. Despite the common perception that fresh vegetables are the  better option, you shouldn’t turn up your nose at frozen fruits and vegetables.

Whether you put them in your favorite smoothie or add to soup, there are a lot of ways you can make them taste great. Here are 3 reasons why you should buy frozen fruits and vegetables over fresh.

Nutritional Value

There is some research suggesting frozen fruits and vegetables may be healthier for you than fresh. This is because the nutritional value of fresh ones decrease from when they are picked. Think of all that time spent in trucks and on the shelf of your local grocery store and you realize  the potential impact that this could have. When you freeze fruits and vegetables, they keep all their nutrients after being frozen.

Storage life

This is an obvious one but still very important. Frozen fruits and vegetables have a longer  shelf life than fresh. It is estimated that the average American household throws out between $1,300- $2,300  worth of food each year. By buying frozen instead, you can save money since your purchase will last a lot longer.

Price

In case you still aren’t convinced, this is the best selling point. Frozen is also substantially cheaper than fresh. When you can get the same nutritional value and longer shelf life at a lower price, there’s almost no contest. If you are looking to save on your grocery bill while not sacrificing health, consider adding frozen fruits and vegetables to your diet today!
