As I understand it, frozen can actually be superior to fresh--many fresh veggies have spent days getting to he store, or were picked unripe to survive shipping. The ones that are frozen are picked ripe and frozen straight away. So while frozen veggies aren't as good as locally grown and freshly picked they're better than something that's been sitting around your local Safeway.
oh this is great. i am relieved now. i am totally addicted to this particular veggie mix <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I feel most comfortable doing some of each - some nutrients are lost during freezing, but others are preserved that might be lost during the long (sigh) trek to our local markets.<br><br>
I feel the same with raw vs. cooked foods. There's benefits to each.<br><br>
