There are fake friends, like bread crumbs and industrial fruit juice, often stuffed with sugar. It is therefore advisable to read the labels correctly, and to opt for products without added sugars.
Contrary to the ideas received, frozen vegetables and fish are sometimes richer from a nutritional point of view than the fresh products that have a little dragged.
Metro, work, "freezer": Many families do not imagine their lives without the frozen. Daily life does not always leave time to peel fresh vegetables or prepare a fish in the oven.
