Shop your freezer in the winter
Instead of buying overpriced fresh produce off-season, stock up on frozen organics. Not only are they cheaper than their fresh
counterparts, but they can be even more nutritious if they’re flash-frozen at the peak of ripeness. In addition, you reduce
waste and spoilage by defrosting only what you need.
