Don't think I could pick one! Some I use often and really enjoy:

blueberries, coffee, tea, dark chocolate, beans, cinnamon, nuts

I dont personally have a favorite one, but mabey this will help you pick your own. UDSA nutritionsits found in a study that the foods below were the top 20 antioxidant rich foods (this is old info, but true nontheless)

1 Small red beans
2 Wild blueberries
3 Red kidney beans
4 Pinto beans
5 Blueberries
6 Cranberries
7 Artichoke hearts
8 Blackberries
9 Dried prunes
10 Raspberries
11 Strawberries
12 Red delicious apple
13 Granny Smith apple
14 Pecans
15 Sweet cherries
16 Black plum
17 Russet potato
18 Black beans
19 Plum
20 Gala apple

They also recommend trying to eat as wide a variety of them as possible since all foods have different antioxidants that effect the body in different ways.

One easy tip - if you have a day where you can't make time to eat right grab a glass of vegetable juice to at least get some of your daily antioxidants
hope that helps!

figureskater, I didn't realize that red beans were so high in them...I eat a lot of Navy and black beans, but that sounds good. Thanks for that list; it's great
