The average American household throws away hundreds of dollars of food every year because it spoils before it can be consumed. One way to curb food waste (and save money!) is to look beyond fresh vegetables and consider frozen instead. Frozen vegetables are picked at peak perfection and flash-frozen. And because you can portion out exactly how much you need, the lifespan of frozen vegetables is significantly longer than fresh. Plus, certified organic varieties are easy to find now, which makes frozen both economical and ecological.
