FROZEN FRUIT OR VEGETABLES
Why were they a no-go? Just a few years ago, fresh fruit and veg was seen as your best option as they’d have the most nutritional content and be devoid of preservatives. Why they were wrong: It’s now been proven that more often than not, frozen fruit and vegetables have managed to retain more of the good stuff than the items you find in the ‘fresh’ produce aisle of the supermarket. This is because a lot of the items in the fresh section are a number of days old and has been transported thousands of miles, meaning the reality is, it’s no longer all that ‘fresh’. However, the items in the freezer section of the supermarket are likely to have been frozen within hours of being picked, so all of the nutrients and goodness are still intact. However, it’s still best to stay away from tinned fruit and veg as these often do contain preservatives to lengthen the life-span of the item before it rots.
