Get Those Fruits and Vegetables in Any Way You Can

March 7, 2016 at 2:56 pm Leave a comment

When it comes to good nutrition, all forms of fruits and vegetables matter – fresh, frozen, canned, dried and 100 percent juice.

Did you know?

  • Most frozen and canned foods are processed within hours of harvest, so their flavor and nutritional value are preserved.
  • Studies show that recipes prepared with canned foods had similar nutritional values to those prepared with fresh or frozen ingredients.
  • Canned foods are “cooked” prior to packaging, so they are recipe-ready.
  • Frozen foods also require little preparation – typically the washing and slicing, for instance, is already done.

All forms of fruits and vegetables count toward your daily recommendation, which is determined by age, gender and activity level. But to simplify things, just fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables.
