    I guess the ideal situation would be to use fresh organic vegetables, but I’ve been trying to make some stirfrys and vegetable dishes and find myself using more frozen vegetables, like frozen green beans, brussel sprouts, broccoli, asparagus etc.

    This wouldn’t affect anything would it? I’m still only eating the vegetables on the allowed foods list!

    Also, I’m just beginning the “diet” part after doing a cleanse for two weeks. I’m wondering which would be the most beneficial element to add at this time. Homemade kefir? Coconut oil?

    I read that the frozen ones are often fresher than the vegetables which where laying around in the store for a long time or where transported a long way.
    Organic out of the garden are best, second are organic frozen ones I believe or from an organic farmer. If you dont get organic take the other ones which are still good food. I believe it is Coconut oil, using it you will not loose so quickly lots of weight and its a anti-fungal too.

    catlover345,

    Since I do a lot of stirfry for supper, I get a lot of the ingredients frozen. There have been lots of studies done on frozen foods and nutritional value. Most experts say that the nutritional value is better in frozen foods because they are harvested at peak ripeness and frozen rather than being harvested far too early, before it has lots of its’ nutrients, and shipped where they ripen in route to the store shelf. That being said, I buy organic frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and cut green beans at a regular grocery store. I also get organic frozen cut okra, and a few other things at a local whole foods store. All of these frozen vegetables usually cost about $1.00 more per 16oz (1 lb) bag. Granted thats approximately double, but still not a bad price in my opinion. Also, you have a frozen vegetable that costs much less than fresh for the most part, and will keep much longer than fresh so waste is largely reduced.

    Good luck,
    DT

    Let me be a little more specific. Frozen vegetables are better than store bought vegetables most of the time. If you grow a garden or can get them fresh at a farmers market that is always the best route. I find they taste much better too.
