Read labels.: Fresh frozen vegetables usually retain more nutrients, but it depends on the form. The package labels will tell you. All canned vegetables are not alike either. Even salsa can end up with no nutrients at all from over-processing. Read labels,if it has no vitamins, fiber, or protein, it is basically junk. Some canned fruits and some juices have no vitamins at all and are just overpriced candy!

In short it thaws.: Obviously, it will thaw out and once thawed cannot be refrozen. While thawing, it can be used but then has a shelf life like that of fresh breast milk - essentially it must be used within the next 24 hours or so.

Parkinson's rigidity: My first recommendation is to consult with your primary care physician or neurologist to verify that the dose of your Parkinson's medication is appropriate for you. There has been a great deal of research showing great benefits of exercise/physical therapy as part of the treatment plan for Parkinson's disease associated rigidity.

Probably not much: Nutritionally, if one puts refrigerated yogurt into the freezer and eats it frozen, there should be little difference. However, when the factory makes frozen yogurt, they put in some different ingredients, so one has to read the labels carefully to be sure not to get too much fat or too much sugar. It would be hard for a consumer to tell the quantity of beneficial probiotics in any type of yogurt.

Read the lable: Your best bet is to compare the nutrition lables. Look for the product with the least cholesterol, sturated fat and trans fat. See if one product has more fiber and less sodium. Check the ingredient list for added sugar. Ingredients are listed in order of amount. All this will help you decide if one product has any health advantage compared to another..

What are some healthy lunches you can grab from the grocery store besides frozen lean cuisines?

Fresh foods: A good lunch is lean proteins such as fish, turkey or chicken, mixed with greens at the salad bar. Another good choice is a black bean or quinoa salad with added vegetables, or almond butter on apple slices. Salads are healthful when high-fat additions such as cheese and oil are limited. You can also grab low-fat cheese to eat with an apple.
