Processed foods are packaged foods whether boxed, canned or frozen. Should you shun all packaged foods in order to maintain good health? Absolutely not! But packaged foods are to be a small portion of your diet, not the majority of it. Why use frozen or canned vegetables when you can use fresh organic foods that have live enzymes and an abundance of nutrition? Perhaps, the fresh version is out of season, as you say. In that case, do not buy the canned or frozen version, instead buy a different vegetable. One that is available in its raw, fresh form. If you know that certain produce is in season, in your area, buy it instead, and prepare your food around what is available, not what a recipe calls for. When you buy locally grown foods from the produce section, you help your community and you end up eating what nature intends for you to eat during each season. If you would like to learn more about healthy eating and how to live naturally, you can read this informative book, The Beginners Guide to Natural Living.
