TheDailyMeal: 8 Foods That Are Worth Buying Frozen

Red Bell Peppers

There’s no argument against the health benefits of a bell pepper: just half a medium bell pepper provides a daily dose of vitamin A and twice as much vitamin C as an orange. These two vitamins help neutralize free radicals that, in turn, helps reduce heart disease, some cancers, and cataracts… that is, if they are fresh. The bell peppers you find sitting on your produce stand could be more than few days old, which is why nutrient-dense foods like red bell peppers are key to remember when considering frozen versus fresh vegetables. Buying frozen bell peppers is a little more expensive than buying fresh, with prices for fresh being around 21 cents per ounce* and frozen being around 37 cents per ounce, but it’s worth the extra dough considering the amount of nutrients that are saved, and of course, frozen peppers are pre-cut, cored, and seeded.

* Assuming 1 bell pepper is about 8 ounces.
