I cannot stand fresh veggies. But I do like veggies out of a can. Canned veggies are healthy right? If you don't add any butter? Or is it not very good for you?

Try frozen vegetables.

If U eat them once in a while there should be no problem, but i suggest U not to eat them daily...they're often rich in salt, which will make U retain liquids and i think their nutritional value is altered. Frozen veggies should be better, although i would def go for fresh! If U cant stand the taste U can dress ur salda with a lil bit of salt, extravirgin olive oil and a lil balsamic vinegar. U can try a mix of veggies too, for ex U can Cook eggplants, zucchini and cherry tomatoes together in a saucepan, add...

A good alternative is frozen veggies. Frozen veggies rarely contain any preservatives and and in opposition to fresh veggies they are harvested when they are just right and not before time like the fresh fruit and Vegs you get at the store. Also they have been frozen almost immidietly after being harvested and haven't been decaying at the shelf a few days before you get to them. So frozen veggies are the way to go.

P.s yes it's true that some vitamins break Down at low temperatures, but since it's frozen very rapidly the effect of this is minimal.

They're terrible - loaded with salt and preservatives - why don't you try seasoning fresh veggies when you cook them.
