I'm not gonna lie...I eat canned greens. :( They are just way to easy and convenient. I'm still kinda new so is there really much difference?

I don't see it as too much of a problem. Certainly better than someone who doesn't eat them at all. Just try to get them in unsalted water to avoid unnecesary sodium.

frozen is better - since they typically freeze them at the peak of frshness/ripeness which seals in the good stuff. canned is better than none - but usually an increase in processing is an increase in sodium and a decrease in quality.

Canning can lower the nutrient contains of particularly thiamin, riboflavin, and vitamin C.

Frozen foods have nutrient contents similar to fresh foods, with minimal losses.

i like frozen, but when you boil them, i find that they are really soggy.
