I use mainly frozen vegetables. When I buy fresh, I usually end up throwing them out. Exceptions would be salad fixings. Those I buy in small quantities because, again, I end up wasting food and that wastes money.
Being positive is a choice. My Mantra: “Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day." Each morning seek the positive and you will have a good day. Always remember, “Your only competition is YOU.”
We've been living in Mexico for a year and a half. Very few processed foods here. Fresh tomatoes are so cheap here that there are no canned tomatoes. No TV dinners, no frozen pizza. Not even canned Pork and Beans. Every so often Sams or Costco have a very limited supply of processed food. When we go back to Dallas I take an extra bag and pick up stuff we need that isn't down here. One of the things is cornbread mix, canned salmon, and wolf brand chili. The Mexicans have beautiful looking desserts, with very little sugar and a taste that my husband cannot stand. I pick up dessert ingredients for his desserts. Mexico has made him eat more fruit. A good way to stop eating processed food
Frozen veggies are the best! Trader Joe's has some great combos. I have never tried the one you mentioned, but I just made their Asian Veggies in Bejing Soy Sauce as a side last night...sooo good. A bit higher in sodium if that's a concern, but you can always use less of the sauce or add more veggies.
I've been noticing that other grocery stores in my area have such a greater variety of frozen veggies than they used to! Frozen mushrooms, asparagus, brussels sprouts, beets, even avocado! Such an awesome thing.

Recommendation for those of you with a Trader Joe's near.
I found a new blend this week: Trader Joe's Organic Green Vegetable Foursome. It has broccoli, peas, green beans and zucchini. They add onions, garlic and light seasoning. Pretty low in sodium (90 mg per serving).
Delicious and a great way to get veggies in, especially if you're in a hurry! Frozen veggies are my fallback when I don't have time to cut, chop, etc.
