Southern Mamas love to feed their families’ fresh food as much as possible, but sometimes the hustle and bustle of life lands Southern shoppers on the frozen aisle at the grocery store. While fresh produce is always nice, there are several benefits to buying frozen fruits and vegetables. Interestingly, people who buy frozen produce actually eat more vegetables than fresh produce shoppers, and frozen fruits and vegetables retain more nutrients than the alternative. It’s also significantly cheaper! For example, twice as much frozen spinach costs about 50 cents less than fresh spinach – now that’s a bargain. Are you sick of checking your refrigerator for moldy berries and discolored broccoli? Frozen produce stays eatable much longer than fresh produce. Not convinced? Not only is frozen produce cheaper, but also it’s easier to deal with. You don’t have to worry about chopping and cleaning before you begin serving or cooking. There’s no reason to feel guilty next time you find yourself on the frozen aisle at the supermarket!
