12 Nutritious Foods That Are Surprisingly Freezer Friendly

Cut down on waste and save money and time.

You know when you kick yourself for buying too much of any particular food--let's say, a Costco size bag of avocados--because they end up ripening too fast and going to waste? I bet you didn't know that you could actually freeze avocado for later, when you're ready to use it? Or perhaps you didn't realize that you could freeze leftover cooked rice or pasta for a future busy weeknight when you're frantically trying make dinner? 

Here are 12 nutritious foods that can be thrown into the freezer for later use, which will help to cut your household food waste, save you money, and offer healthy ingredients for future meals and snacks.
