Did you know that we are smack dab in the middle of March Frozen Food Month? Personally, I don’t know what I’d do without all the fabulous frozen foods that help me create tasty recipes for my family. I depend on them for easy of use and of course as a huge time-saver in my day.

Of course that’s only a couple of the reasons why frozen foods are better!

Besides being incredibly convenient, frozen foods give us the opportunity to enjoy our favorite foods anytime of the year. That means seasonal limitations are part of the past. Plus, one of my favorite things about frozen foods is that they are economical. You don’t pay for stalks, pits, skins, rinds or damaged food. That means you aren’t paying for any waste. With frozen foods, 100% of the food is edible. That means edible ounce for edible ounce, frozen food costs are usually less than their fresh counterparts.

We all know that freezing foods seals in freshness. So you get the freshest food possible…food that has been frozen at it’s peak freshness and flavor. Plus, food quick-frozen and properly stored keep their high nutritional value which is important in my book.

All in all, with frozen foods you get great taste that’s convenient and nutritious PLUS a great value. I’d say that’s a winning combination!
