When your parents said it was important to eat more fruits and vegetables, they were right.  Fruits and vegetables are nutritional powerhouses.  They are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants and may help protect us from diseases, such as cancer and heart disease.  But what should you do if your neighborhood store has slim pickings for fresh produce?  Should you head to the frozen section to pick up some frozen or canned produce instead?  Are they just as nutritious?

Those are good questions because if you are buying produce for the health benefits, you want to buy the produce that provides the most nutrition and health benefits.  So, today I’m going to clear up the confusion a bit and break down the differences between the different options available to you.

    This is some great information. I’ve never really considered the difference between fresh produce and processed. Thanks for the education!

    I liked the great points that you addressed about what kinds of fruits and vegetables you should buy and why. I always thought that fresh was the best. Well, you learn every day!
