If the summer presents a wide selection of fresh vegetables, fruits, berries and greens, which contain a large amount of vitamins and substances necessary for the work of the body and increase immunity, then in the winter such an opportunity is not provided, despite the fact that in supermarkets such products are sold.
However, it should be remembered that those fruits or vegetables that are not grown in the season of their natural maturation, in most cases contain a lot of nitrates and other substances that have a negative impact on health. Maybe that’s why a certain category of people paying attention to proper nutrition, make preparations for the winter.
According to experts, the most effective way to preserve useful properties is drying or freezing.
It is not a secret for anyone that in dried fruits, for example, dried apricots, plum or prunes, the vitamin is contained no less than in fresh berries. With regard to freezing, it also allows you to save the maximum amount of useful substances, and a long period of storage with no defrosting allowed.
Among These Some Types of Vegetables
However, do not forget that not all products can be frozen, among which there are onions, garlic, tomatoes and potatoes. Some people, in order to control the amount of calories consumed, as well as the use of salt, sugar and fats when preparing meals, prefer home-cooked meals, often preparing meals for several days, storing them in a refrigerator or freezer.
At the same time, they do not know that, for example, macaroni are not suitable for such storage, because after the defrosting, the paste becomes soft and viscous, which naturally worsens the taste.
And if the dish contains sauce, then due to the effects of low temperatures it is divided into individual ingredients.
As for fried foods, nutritionists recommend completely eliminating them from the diet, not to mention their freezing, because they can cause food poisoning. This list also includes cakes, cakes and other desserts, because they can absorb condensate.
