Tonight we had a pasta sauce with fresh Roma tomatoes from the garden. I don't like raw tomatoes but love fresh ones cooked in sauces. YUM!

I prefer fresh vegetables but don't always eat them quickly enough before they spoil. Frozen vegetables are my second choice.

I love almost all of my veggies fresh...the only exception is green beans--for some reason I only like them canned.

I rather have them fresh. I truly enjoy a plate of fresh purple hull peas with tomatoes a slice of onion and a few pods of fresh boiled orka. Now that's a meal and I do not need any meat with it.

I used to prefer fresh over frozen but now, it depends on just how "fresh" the fruits/veggies are. So if I get them from a Farmer's market, that's great but lots of times, who knows how long the food was in storage or in transit before it got to the supermarket?

Also, with the advent of Flash freezing, many times those veggies are more nutritious than "fresh". the only thing is, fruit does somewhat take a texture hit when it thaws out so there is that to consider

PANFRIEDTROUT, I am with you on canned vegetables. Last weekend, I made hummus with canned chickpeas instead of dried ones and the difference was like day and night. Horrible.

I prefer fresh and in season overall. I will buy frozen during the off-season to get more nutrients than I would from fresh because California is really far away from Ontario.

My preference is for fresh fruits & vegetables, even when they're out of season & cost more to buy. If I have to buy frozen, I will since with freezing techniques these days, they're as healthy or sometimes moreso than fresh.

I deplore canned veggies and fruit but if all else fails, I will buy & eat them. The biggest "yuck" factor for me with canned is the dramatic texture /taste differences.

I prefer fresh, but frozen lasts longer and is almost as good as fresh most of the time. Canned is good for long-term storage, but I don't think the flavor is as good.

Fresh and frozen tied with canned coming in last. We us canned once in a while but not often due to the processing.

fresh or frozen. can't do canned.

A women is often measured by the things she cannot control.
She is measured by the way her body curves or doesn't curve, by where she is flat or straight or round.
She is measured by 36-24-36 and inches and ages and numbers, by all the outside things that don't ever add up to who she is on the inside.
And so if a women is to be measured, let her be measured by the things she can control;
by who she is and who she is trying to become.
Because as every women knows, measurement

What do you find yourself reaching for the most when adding veggies to your daily diet plan?
For me its a bit of all 3 especially during the creation of our family dinner. I will either use my steamer to cook the frozen veggies (yes, even my dogs LOVE frozen veggies) or prepare fresh veggies and in certain meal plans use the canned variety. I usually stock up on the frozen and canned stuff when I find a great sale.
