I'm glad we get the chance to as more questions because I have another burning question, Ms. Gee.

A nutritionist spoke at my company last year and was talking about the benefits of shopping the outside walls of a grocery store. However, she did note that shopping for vegetables in the frozen section was a good idea because they are frozen at a fresher point than the "fresh" veggies we find in the produce aisle.

Based on this information, my question is, how would you rank the following vegetables:

"fresh" from the produce aisles
frozen
canned

I find that eating canned veggies are by far the easiest. However, am I getting any of the nutrients at all or just a load of sodium? Are the frozen veggies that are steamed in the microwave still good or do they lose their nutrients in the steaming process?

Thanks so much, I look forward to your reply.
