I always store bags of blanched or uncooked frozen vegetables from the store in my freezer. Frozen vegetables are often fresher than the fresh vegetables you can buy. I tend to add a cup or two of frozen veggies to my fresh ones, that helps with the 5 vegs and fruit a day… and they come in very handy when you are in a hurry.
