I use canned artichokes all the time on my salads. Are frozen artichokes better then canned, taste, texture, or whatever ?

I've never tried the canned, so I can't say. I started buying the frozen because they're less expensive...and then found myself throwing a box or 2 into the grocery cart every week.

I actually just saw some frozen artichokes for the first time earlier this week when I was looking at other frozen vegetables. I am not sure if they are at all the stores I shop at because I looked for them once before and didn't find them. I will have to get some frozen artichokes to try (if I can remember what store I saw them at), and compare prices.

Hi Don
do I remember well that Dr D wrote that green leaves (and broccoli as peas) can be frozen without problems?  poliammines are more a problem with grains, meat, eggs, fish and  protein foods and with commercial flash-frozen foods. I take also some turkey ready on my freezer, bought fresh and frozen by me, or fish leftovers.
Am I so poorly caring for my food ?

As I said earlier in the thread I do freeze extra greens that I cook myself. I don't worry about freezing vegetables myself. I agree, it is the commercial flash freezing process that is the big problem.

Hi MoDon,
How  r u ??


How big of a problem r we talking about here and what can
we do about it, short of stop eating all frozen vegetables??
I think I have read that some people drink cherry juice

I have always used frozen peas, brussels sprouts and
sometimes even broccoli and cauliflower !!!
Am I doing more harm that good here ??

Thank-u

I have no idea a big of a polyamine problem eating commercially flash frozen vegetables is, but I seriously doubt it is worse for you then not eating the vegetables at all.

To be safe just make sure you are eating some of the other good things for your blood type that lower polyamines, which are listed in LR4YT on page 106 such as larch, walnuts, green tea, cherries, blueberries, or other dark pigmented fruit, turmeric, onions, garlic, etc.

Honestly--I would not worry about the polyamine problem unless you're eating almost everything commercially flash-frozen. If you are using a mix of mostly fresh and some frozen veggies and getting plenty of good bennies in there, I think you'll be more than okay. Just my opinion y'all

Thanks so very much MoDon !!
I really appreciate u taking the time to do that for me;
very kind of u

I guess I'll start eating 3-4 walnuts daily !!!


I do eat onions, garlic very often and I love spices ... I made my own mix of :
turmeric, cumin, coriander, ginger, paprika and often I will also add cardamom and/or cayenne !!
Now, I should also start drinking green tea !!

I normally don't buy many frozen vegetables, except for keeping some green peas and a small bag of okra in the freezer. I buy fresh.

I had an experience this past week where I have been frequently fixing some sauteed okra. I bought a big 2.5 lb bag of frozen okra at the store about a week ago and started fixing some 1-2 times a day. The bag is almost empty now!


MoDon, am I glad you posted this thread. I bought myself some frozen okra and sauteed it in some ghee for lunch, and boy, is it good! The slime is something I'll just have to get used to, but I really like the taste. So thank you for introducing me to a way to eat another beneficial food!


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.
