Frozen Veggies are the way to go. Quick, Easy and cheaper than fresh. Also I really think with the freezing techniques, nothing is ruined in them. Every time I go to the store I buy several bags of frozen broccoli, several bags of cut green beans, and about 10 packages of frozen spinach. Seriously, boil a big bag of fresh spinach and see what you get when you drain it and put it in a bowl,then take one frozen brick of spinach and microwave it or boil it till it's warm and see which one you get more out of.
A bowl of spinach with some apple cider vinegar in it is a great side to many meat dishes, and it takes about 2 minutes from grabbing it out of the freezer till it's in your bowl ready to eat. Oh it's also awsome for you as well.
V8 in my opinion is great stuff, if you buy low sodium V8 and drink it in the place of fruit juice, you will be making a great step in controlling your blood sugar and insulin. I mean it's not perfect, but it's far better than any fruit juice and obviously kills soda and other soft drinks.
