Frozen food benefits

With flurries of snow, even on the south coast, vegetables can be pricy at this time of year and many people turn to frozen vegetables, not always with a glad heart but there is no need to disparage them. You can now buy organic frozen vegetables and if buying non-organic then, as ever, read the labels to check for any artificial additives or colourings.

Fresh fruit isn’t as plentiful, but there is one great treat from the freezer cabinet and that is to buy packs of frozen summer fruits. I keep one in the freezer and add a scoopful to the blender with yoghurt, soya milk or fruit juice to make a healthy vitamin c packed smoothie, whatever the weather.
