Getting Fresh vegetables in this lockdown period is one of the daunting tasks; even if you get it, you can not store it for many days and definitely would not recommend getting it every day instead go out only to get the utmost needs. So how about having frozen vegetables? Let's dig into this

First of all, almost all the food comes in packet, bottle, cans, or boxes, and anything coming in them is processed to make it stay longer. processed - good or bad is another day topic Now focusing just on frozen vegetables, it is considered that frozen vegetables are not that good as fresh vegetables. Is it the case? Researchers have shown that the frozen vegetables have almost the same nutrient content as its fresh counterpart, but depending on the vegetable and also how it is cultivated, there can be an insignificant amount of differences in nutrients. So if you are finding it difficult to get fresh vegetables daily, then you can try out frozen ones too without the fear of losing nutrients. Now coming to the processed part, well it's within the dietary limits so again no worries In case you want to know the source of the above statement here are the links - https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/jsfa.2825 https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/99/6/1525/4577499 Even if you are not able to find frozen vegetables, its okay not to have it for few days.
