With winter in full swing, it can often be difficult to find quality and affordable fresh produce in the grocery store. But don't let the lack of fresh vegetables scare you away from greens and knock you off your New Year Resolutions already. Head over to the frozen foods aisle and pick up a few bags of frozen vegetables! According to WebMd, "Nutritionally speaking, frozen veggies are similar to -- and sometimes better than -- fresh ones. This makes sense, considering that these veggies are usually flash-frozen (which suspends their "aging" and nutrient losses) immediately after being harvested. Frozen veggies were often picked in the peak of their season, too." Not to mention the efficiency of preparing frozen vegetables! Since vegetable consumption has been linked to breast cancer benefits, it's always nice to have frozen veggies as an option!
