2. Check the freezer aisle

Ever feel like there are not enough hours in the day?

Farm fresh veggies are T&C's motto, but frozen veggies are a great alternative for you overachieving active people! Not sure where to go? Health food stores like Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Sprouts have delicious frozen veggie options. However, if those are not in your area, look for butternut squash or sweet potatoes! Vegetables that are red and orange are rich with vitamins and minerals.
