Blueberry fruit

 Antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E help protect against oxidative stress and free radicals that form in the body during strenuous physical activity—and berries are one of the best sources out there, says Lewin. (Bonus: Eating lots of antioxidants also seem to help preserve muscle strength as you age, according to a 2009 study.)

"Choose berries with the most intense colors—blackberries, raspberries, blueberries—because they have more of those phytochemicals and protective substances," she says. Toss them into a smoothie, add them to your morning cereal, or just eat them by the handful. Aim to eat berries (and other fruits) from across the color spectrum, Lewin adds, to ensure that you're getting a wide variety of antioxidants and nutrients.

  • 4 cups coarsely chopped leftover cooked turkey (about 1 lb.)
  • 3/4 cup Hellmann's or Best Foods Real Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Spray 8-inch baking dish with no-stick cooking spray. Spoon in 2 cups stuffing, then top with turkey.
  2. Combine 1/4 cup Hellmann's or Best Foods Real Mayonnaise with cranberry sauce; evenly spread over turkey.
  3. Combine remaining 1/2 cup Mayonnaise, potatoes and cheese in large bowl. Evenly spread on turkey, then top with remaining 2 cups stuffing.
