Frozen Vegetables are Better than Canned, but Not as Great as Fresh

If that fabulous vegetarian recipe calls for lots of veggies but there are no fresh vegetables readily available, weigh your options carefully. If you've got frozen vegetables in one hand and canned ones in the other, put those canned ones down.

While fresh vegetables are always preferable to frozen vegetables (the freezing process causes damage to the food's cells which lessens its nutritional value). Eating foods that are pre-frozen is acceptable but be careful not overwhelm your diet with pre-frozen foods. In the long run, however, you're better off with frozen vegetables than canned ones which have additives.
