March Is National Frozen Food Month

March is National Frozen Food Month and traditionally that means that certain brands will offer new products, coupons and discounts during the month.  Their goal is to increase sales and brand recognition but your goal should be to learn how to use frozen food to supplement your diet of fresh and canned food.

In some areas it is especially hard to get fruits and vegetables during the winter.  Supplementing your diet with frozen vegetables like corn, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, etc. can stretch your options but check the packages to make sure there are no added chemicals or sugar.

Fruit like any kind of berries, sliced peaches, whole or sliced strawberries freeze well but you’ll also want to make sure that nothing has been added before the fruit was frozen.

Another option exists for people who grow their own fruits and vegetables.  Freeze or can them yourself.  There are many excellent tutorials on the internet to teach you how to do this!

Remember that canned and frozen foods are best used to supplement your diet and not become a staple themselves!
