Turn your veggies into freezer-friendly meals:
Different colors of produce have different antioxidants and nutrients. You can buy frozen or canned to last longer or buy it fresh and utilize your home time to cook and freeze meals in bulk. Soups and stews are great options that freeze without distorting texture or flavor.
Give your immune system a boost with:
Vitamin C rich foods – Pineapples, red and green peppers, kiwi, oranges, strawberries
Polyphenol rich foods – Celery, onions, ginger, garlic, chocolate, coffee, tea, olive oil, apples, berries
Did you buy too many jars of tomato sauce? Chop and sauté peppers, onion, squash, sweet potato, carrot broccoli, spinach or any other veggies on hand, add a jar of sauce then cool and freeze for a veggie dense sauce to serve over your favorite whole grain or veggie noodle when you’re ready!
