This week I want to address societies stigma regarding frozen veg. Many people are proud of the fact that they only eat fresh produce, obtaining maximum nutritional benefit. The fact is frozen vegies have the same and most likely MORE vitamins and nutrients in them due to being snap frozen shortly after harvest.

Now this is fantastic news for those of you that are running short on time during the week. Simply stock up on some frozen vegies during your shopping, keep a few in the work freezer! A few minutes in the microwave and you have a nutritious snack ready to go. Mix it with some microwave rice or another carbohydrate of choice and you will have energy to go.

So lads, if cooking vegetables has been your nemesis just give in to the frozen vegetables, its a great lifestyle change. Keep an out for full frozen meals though, these are full of preservatives and salts and will not be doing you any favours!

Many thanks,

Hamish
