Best Healthy Frozen Foods

Frozen doesn’t always mean unhealthy.

Here are some foods to toss in your cart while browsing the frozen food section:

1. Ring that bell… Pepper

Rich in both vitamin A and vitamin C, frozen bell peppers retain their nutrient value longer than fresh alternatives.

2. Munch out like Popeye

The moment it gets picked, spinach begins to lose antioxidants such as vitamin C and beta-carotene. Freezing, however, preserves the nutrients for weeks.

3. Go Wild for Blueberries

Frozen wild blueberries retain their high antioxidant content no matter what the season.

4. Bring out the Broccoli

Rich in the cancer-fighting compound sulforaphane, fresh broccoli’s nutrient power fades with time while frozen retains those health benefits longer.

5. Get Fishy

Fresh caught, local fish can be hard to come by, but frozen wild Alaskan salmon fillets provide a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.

6. Spill the Beans

Frozen beans provide all the convenience of canned with a lot less sodium… and a big boost iron and fiber.
