Enjoying dark chocolate is a surprising way to add more anti-oxidants to your diet and might even be a way to help lower blood pressure.  Just be sure to make it dark since the verdict is out that the more actual dark cocoa in the bar, the better. So aim for 70% cocoa content when you can find it. Anyone who loves sweet and salty will adore this Lindt bar “a touch of sea salt”. Green and Black’s Organic Dark Chocolate with Ginger is my all time favorite, crunchy bits of crystallized ginger mingle with bitter chocolate to perk up your taste buds.

Drinking tea is a great way to warm yourself during flu season and calm an overactive appetite.  This tea collection has a wonderfully rich flavor that even a coffee drinker can appreciate.

Sooth Muscles, Balance and Restore

My favorite is the foot walker set, great after a long day of standing or on nights after tango dancing.

Remember that scene in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” where Holly opens the door and she had a sleep mask on her head? Well, she had the right idea! Using a sleep mask can mean a deeper, more restful sleep. It is a must for travel and this one is easy to wash and light to carry.
