The Best Frozen Fruits and Vegetables
Frozen artichoke hearts have a mildly sweet flavor and provide six grams of fiber per half cup. A recent study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition followed nearly 90,000 subjects for six and a half years and found those who ate the most fiber gained less weight than those who had a low-fiber diet. "Fiber can slow digestion," says sports dietitian and runner Cara Marrs, RD, "which keeps you full."
Artichoke and Pesto Pasta
In a skillet, sauté 3 ounces shrimp and 1 cup frozen artichoke hearts for 3 minutes. Toss with cooked whole-grain pasta, 1/4 cup store-bought pesto, and 1/2 cup sliced sun-dried tomatoes.
