Frozen Vegetables and Fruits

Stock up for quick, easy microwave cooking!

  • To control fat and perhaps calories, choose frozen plain vegetables or those made with low-fat sauces. Some sauces mixed with frozen vegetables add fat, saturated fat, and calories; check the Nutrition Facts on the label.
  • Look for frozen fruits as an option when fresh berries and other fruits are out of season; they're sold in both sweetened and unsweetened varieties. To help frozen fruit keep its shape, serve while it's still somewhat frozen. Frozen fruit bars make a nutritious snack, too; read the label to know if they're made with juice or just flavored water with sweeteners.
  • Buy fruit and vegetables in loose-pack plastic bags. You'll only need to pour out what you need; then immediately return what you don't use to the freezer.
  • Choosing frozen juice concentrate? The tips in "More Reading on the Food Label " in this chapter apply. Read the label to compare products. Juice concentrates often cost a bit less than juice sold in car-tons—and you can store them longer.
