Over the Chill
For years there's been debate about whether it's a good idea to eat frozen foods. The reality is that simply freezing a food item is not what makes it less healthy — some leading health organizations say frozen food is actually as nutritious as fresh, and certain nutrients in food are even better preserved when frozen. The key difference to look for when considering buying frozen food is the nutritional content of the food item and any potential additives: Frozen fruits and vegetables on their own are typically healthy, but it's better to stay away from items such as pizzas, snacks, or entrees that may include a lot of added sugar, sodium, or high-calorie sauces. Here's a closer look at some frozen foods to avoid putting in a shopping cart.
