If I was trying to take in the most vitamin C and E possible I'd eat acerola cherries and virgin red palm oil, respectively. Both are tasty in an odd kind of way.

What is your objective function? Natural? Magnitude? Cost?

I have no problem reaching the RDA for C with fruits.

Chris Masterjohn has some interesting writing about Vitamin E and why you may not need as much in the absence of significant vegetable oil intake. Supplementing is problematic unless you find a natural source with mixed tocopherols, and even then, not sure if it is a good idea or not. I take one 200 IU pill a week, but probably won't replace my bottle when it's finished. More here:

Eat a couple handfuls of raw sunflower seeds. Great source of magnesium as well.

Supplements/vitamins. I take supplements for vitamin C and E- as well as fish oil and a probiotic. There are absolutely other ways to attain your daily allowance without the use of supplements, but I find this to be easy and effective. Good luck!
