Antioxidant-packed berries, such as blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, contain some of the highest antioxidant levels of foods measured by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Berries add sweet tartness to muffins, smoothies, jams, and more. They're at their peak from late May through August.
