frozen veggies

does freezing veggies destroy much of its vitamin content, or is it no real big deal? i usually go to BJ’s and load up on frozen veggies, makes my life easier then having to worry about things going bad in the fridge.
thanks

I’m no expert in this area, but I would start by asking yourself one question. If you weren’t to buy frozen would you eat veggies at all? If the answer is no, then you’re probably better to use frozen than nothing. As for whether they’re the same or not, I can’t field that one.

actually frozen veggies retain their minerals and vitamins better than fresh veggies that are left in the fridge for a few days providing they are picked and frozen quickly

I beleive frozen veggies are OK, but canned are not. I live off frozen veggies…
