When it comes to one’s health & wellness, the little steps can make a big impact. At the start of the year, I committed myself to following a healthier lifestyle. I am currently practicing a vegan diet and I’ve really enjoyed coming up with creative, plant-based meals and snacks. Today I’m going to share some some other tips to lead a healthy lifestyle, including stress management, staying physically active, choosing smarter snacks like Gatsby Chocolate, and more.

1. Enjoy smarter snacks

A low-calorie chocolate? Yes, Gatsby Chocolate is actually the first ever low-calorie chocolate, boasting about only half the calories of other chocolate brands. With 90% less sugar and 90% less fat than premium chocolate brands, Gatsby Chocolate is definitely a brand that you can feel good about enjoying!

If you’d like to try their chocolate, I have good news. The brand is offering the opportunity to sample their chocolate for free – visit this link here. Their chocolate products feature all of the delicious flavor you expect in a chocolate bar in a better-for-you formulation with lower calories, sugar and fat than traditional chocolate products. A few pieces of the chocolate is one of my favorite pick-me-ups, along with a cup of my favorite vanilla macaron tea. The flavor of this chocolate is really rich and delicious! 

If you’re following a special diet, you’ll be happy to know that Gatsby caters to various dietary restrictions. Following a keto lifestyle? Their chocolate only contains 1-2 grams of net carbs per serving. Vegan diet? The Sea Salt Extra Dark, Almond Dark, and Dark Chocolate varieties are fully vegan. Woohoo!

Developed by the same folks who are behind the super-popular Halo Top ice cream, Gatsby Chocolate is perfect for those who want to enjoy great-tasting chocolate in a healthier formulation. Keep up with the latest news & offers from the company on social media: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Look for Gatsby Chocolate varieties at your local Sprouts Farmers Market, Safeway, Albertsons, and in stores and online at Walmart. Use the store locator here for a full list of retailers in your area.  

2. Practice stress management: It’s important to keep everyday stress under control. Begin a practice of yoga, meditation, journaling or mindfulness to help you manage your stress levels. I’ve recently started doing yoga & meditation again and they have been so helpful for my mental health.

3. Exercise at least 4 days per week: For peak cardiovascular health, an exercise regimen of aerobic exercise several times per week results in the best results. Staying active on the other days (going for a walk, for example) is important too. 

4. Get enough sleep: Focusing on sleep every night is key for a healthy lifestyle, including optimal health. Create a bedroom environment that promotes good sleep, including setting a cooler temperature, going to bed at the same time every night, and not using electronic devices within a few hours of bedtime.

5. Eat the rainbow: A well-balanced, whole foods diet is key for ensuring adequate nutrition. By consuming a variety of colorful phytochemicals every day, we can maximize the health benefits of our diets.
