    Do many of you use frozen veg as opposed to fresh? What do you use? where do you get it from?

    i often use frozen just simply cos i find its cheaper.. it keeps really well.. its easy to cook.. x x

    I always keep some frozen veg in freezer just incase i run out of fresh and can't get out to buy more, its so convienient. I buy frozen sprout, broccoli, cauli, chopped onions and mixed peppers from Heron and farmfoods much cheaper from here. Hope your ok Kat. xxx Loobylou

    There has been a lot of debate about frozen veg holding more nutrients due to being frozen then transported to wherever it is going where as fresh loses some nutrients due to being transported around if that makes any sense.

    Do you know.....It's never ever occured to me to buy frozen veg! - I don't like peas unless popped and eaten raw from pods...I'm a funny girl lol! so hadn't ever looked at what's available *blushes furiously*
    Blimey! I'm gonna have to venture into the freezer section and have a look....How cool to have veg and not spend hours prepping!

    Mushrooms and peppers?! that would be so handy - do they do onions too?

    Watch out for the aunt bessies stuff though, they are usually synned upon. I thought the frozen mashed turnip and carrots was free and it wasn't.
