Blueberries are full of antioxidants, which Holly Klamer, MS, RDN, registered dietitian and writer at My Crohns And Colitis Team, says can protect cells from damage and help slow the consequences of the aging process.

"Specifically, blueberries have been shown to help protect against cognitive decline associated with aging according to a 2020 review, and a 2012 study also concluded antioxidants from berries can help slow cognitive decline in older adults," says Klamer.

Nuts are also a great addition to your diet after 50, as they have been found to slow the aging process and help with cognitive decline.

"Nuts are a good source of many nutrients that can help slow aging like antioxidants, heart-healthy fats, and minerals," says Klamer, "and according to a 2014 review, including nuts as part of a healthy diet can help lower risk for heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and weight gain around the midsection."

If you want to slow the aging process, you may want to consider adding avocados to your grocery list.

"Avocados contain anti-aging antioxidants like vitamins B, C, folate, magnesium, lutein, and beta-carotene," says registered dietitian Rachel Fine, RDN, owner of To The Pointe Nutrition, "and they are high in the 'good for you' type of fat (monounsaturated fats), which boost age-defying antioxidants."
