iVillage: 10 Healthy Eating Myths That Could Be Ruining Your Diet

4 of 11

Myth: Fresh Produce Is Always the Better Choice Over Frozen Fruits and Vegetables

Truth: There is nothing wrong with buying frozen fruits and vegetables, especially when they’re out of season. When you buy out-of-season, you pay more for produce that has been stored or transported long distances, which usually translates into nutrient loss. “Frozen [fruits and vegetables] are actually a really healthy choice because they are frozen at peak ripeness,” according Gans. Look for brands without additives, like sugar, and steer clear of vegetables mixes with sauces (think butter or cheese). If your only option is to buy canned, pick the low-sodium versions for veggies and fruit packed in natural juices. Gans also recommends rinsing all canned veggies under cold water to lower the sodium content before heating.
