See our downloadable quick nutrition charts for fresh fruits and veggies.  Frozen vegetables are generally the same unless they’ve added various sauces to the package.  In those cases, read the nutrition facts box on the label.

I love your nutritional info for Fruits, veggies, and nuts – and see they are available in PDF format — My question is – is it available in another format? I am using my Low histamine diet to help manage MCAD and have decided to create a database of my recipes and thought it would be really cool to add the nutritional info per recipe and your tables of this info are fantastic – I just cannot import to my database program. Thank you in advance for any info you can provide.
