There’s more to frozen food than waffles and nuggets. Meals that have been kept in the freezer can actually be incredibly nutritious. 

To prove it, the team at Knowmore have created the above video listing 6 items you should totally freeze.

1. Bell Peppers

Rich in vitamin A and vitamin C, frozen bell peppers retain their nutrient value longer than fresh alternatives.  

2. Spinach

The moment it gets picked, spinach begins to lose antioxidants such as vitamin C and beta-carotene. Freezing preserves the nutrients for weeks.

3. Blueberries

Frozen wild blueberries retain their high antioxidant content, no matter what the season. 

4. Broccoli

Broccoli is rich in the compound sulforaphane, which is thought to help protect against cancer. Yet the compound’s power fades over time. While frozen, however, broccoli retains the benefits for longer. 

 5. Fish

Frozen wild Alaskan salmon fillets provide a good source of omega-3 fatty acids - and they’re a lot easier to get hold of than fresh, locally-caught produce. 

6. Beans

Frozen beans provide all the convenience of canned with a lot less sodium and a big boost of iron and fibre.
