    We eat a mixture of fresh and frozen.

    Interestingly, frozen is better for you as it is picked and frozen straight away. 'Fresh' veggies can be in cold storage for up to six months and this causes them to break down nutritionally.

    Half & half

    I always have a few packets of frozen in the fridge mainly peas & corn, beans and spinach

    I always buy fresh potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, cauliflower and broccoli though

    I shop on a Tuesday and buy fresh veg, but a lot of it will only last until the weekend. I was fortunate enough this week to then have enough to buy cabbage, mushrooms and capsicum on friday. Otherwise apart from potato, pumpkin, sweet potato and onion, the rest is frozen. Home Brand at that. It hasn't killed us yet.

    Fruit is fresh. Tinned fruit is used as desserts or saved for camping/flooding/cyclones when fresh is unavailable.

    Frozen vegies are so handy and often accompany our dinners. I almost always have fresh mushies, capsicum and tomatoes around as I put them in a meal almost every day. Tinned mushrooms are yuck and you can't get frozen ones (to my knowledge). I do have some tinned capsicum & tomatoes for emergencies .

    Fruit is frozen (berries), fresh (bananas, apples, peaches) and tinned/tubs (peaches, apricots, pears, apples). I saw those frozen smoothie things & thought that I should make some of my own! Might get around to that!

    I hate frozen veggies until I met dh I didn't even know there was a huge variety of frozen veggies apart from peas, corn and beans. The inlaws never cook fresh veggies only frozen and a small variety at that as fil is a picky eater at 64

    We keep those 3 in the freezer for emergencies and fried rice. But prefer to eat fresh. However I've never eaten or cooked fresh peas.
