Frozen Foods - Good or Bad?

Monday March 17 2014

I have been sharing this little "food tip" for months with my patients, and I'd like to share it with you too!  Have you ever tried to freeze a bag of strawberries or blueberries that you bought from the farmer's market only to have it all clump together into one big brick of strawberries or blueberries?  I have discovered the secret to freezing fruits/vegetables without them clumping together!  Wash the fruits and let them dry thoroughly.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Place the individual or cut up fruit/vegetable pieces evenly spaced out on the cookie sheet.  Put the cookie sheet into the freezer for about 30-60 minutes.  Throw everything into a big freezer ziploc bag.  And, voila!  Hopefully the weather will be warming up soon and you can buy lots of fresh fruits/vegetables from your local farmer's market and freeze to your heart's content!
