Welcome to Coffee with Candi, a time for us to have a chat every week on Friday and catch up.
Well, I’ll have a chat with you about my week…what’s been happening, the good the bad the exciting, the boring…most importantly, what have I learned about life, my family, my friends, work, health, looking my best…I’ll spill it honestly and openly with you. Always with a fresh cup of hot, black coffee in my hand. I think better with java in my paw.
And, I’ll share one special thing that has brightened up my week, so it can potentially make you smile, too. It might be a new gadget, a piece of furniture, a nifty clothing find, a recipe, or something to make your life easier. It’s my gift to you that will keep on giving. 🙂
What’s on my mind this week:
Fat is not always the enemy. It adds flavor and helps keep you full, because it takes a long time to digest.
Our friends at Eating Well tell us that foods can certainly be healthy without a low-fat label, and it’s OK to embrace that fact.
Fat adds flavor to foods and helps keep you full, because it takes a long time to digest. Many fats are good for you, like the heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats found in nuts, seeds, olives and avocados.
So, here are the 4 good full fat foods: Salad Dressing, Dairy, Peanut Butter and Eggs. Yay!

Creative Holiday Decorating Color Palettes from BHG.com! I always enjoy seeing different color combinations for holiday decorating, so thought I would pass these on for your enjoyment.You’ll see pink and green, blue and silver, green and brown, and crisp white. If you are a die hard red and green decorator please avert your eyes. 🙂
If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly and functional gift, check out the collapsible totes from CleverMade.com.
I received some introductory information the other day and was impressed with their products. The trio shown here is an EcoBasket 3 Pack of collapsible 20 liter totes. Reusable, transports up to 25 lbs, offers both a shoulder strap and handles depending upon the load, and folds down flat to less than 1.5″ and stores neatly with the built-in WrapStrap™
This particular set comes in two other colors, and is one of a variety of functional, reusable and environmentally responsible totes. Use the link above to check out all the options.
