Veggies: Fresh or Frozen??
Everyone always talks about “fresh this and fresh that”. But the truth is frozen veggies can have much higher nutrient content and taste just as good. When veggies are flash frozen just after being picked the nutritional profile is locked in unlike so called fresh veggies that have sat in a truck for days during shipping and then sat out in the produce section of your local grocery store.
Now if you have access to local farmers market veggies then by all means buy fresh. I especially love fresh veggies when served raw. The crunch of fresh veggies is far superior to anything frozen but if you’re cooking the veggies the difference is minimal. Another advantage to frozen is price. For example, a bag of frozen stir fry veggies at Costco was about $10 for a giant bag. If I had purchased these same veggies fresh it would have cost me double the money and if only have a few days to use them.
Because the frozen stir fry veggies will last for a much longer period I can use them over and over, unlike fresh veggies. Fajita veggies blends for Mexican recipes are another example of veggies that are great to buy frozen. They can be used at a moment’s notice in all sorts of recipes. Think about whether you will be able to use the veggies your buying fresh and if you don’t think you will use them up before going bad than maybe frozen veggies could be a great option.
Pili Nuts are a delicious exotic nut found in the philippines. They have a buttery texture and are perfect for eating by the handful or chopped and added to stir fry. While at ketocon last year I had a chance to meet the owner of Pili Hunters and sample a few of their products. The nut butters were all fantastic with many different varieties to choose from. For this recipe I used the classic Pili Nut Butter seasoned with himalayan sea salt. The creamy texture adds body to the sauce and is a perfect alternative to peanuts used in traditional Thai sauces. I highly recommend giving these nuts a try especially if you’re looking for a high fat low carb nut.
