A 24-year-old male asked:

Do frozen veggies have same nutrition as raw veggies? and can microwaving food damage the food's nutritional components or does it maintain them?

Good: For zen is generally considered close set to fresh picked. Often or "fresh" produce we picked weeks ago.

Frozen and microwave: Quick frozen veggies have slightly less nutritional value than raw, but are a benefit in times when fresh is not available. Microwave depletes nutrition.Microwaving, often called "nuking" is un natural, I do not recommend the use of nuking at all!
