The Protein Problem/Frustated

I started this post on 3/8/17 and I started by saying "I decided to click on the "nutrition button" on my MyFitnessPal App and found out that I am so far away from my required amount of protein it's not funny. I've revised my "diet" so many times! Obviously this is a never ending task."

It's currently 5/12/17 and I am still having issues. I'm trying to add more protein but this has been a very difficult task! Yes! I know what protein sources are available, this is the problem with that... Protein powders usually tend to be sweet and I am not a "Sweets" person, it hard to get that in. Meat, ugh, I eat SOME meat but I try not to eat a ton of meat. Obviously the turkey, chicken and occasional bacon is not enough! Now that I'm paying attention to the amount of protein in the things that I buy but it's like nothing has protein in it or not enough! Beans, don't get me started. Ok, I'm going to get started. I do not oppose beans, I like black and red beans. I like hummus, I like baked beans. I cannot eat beans or I'm not supposed to due to my candida overgrowth. I tend to have major reactions when I eat them. Not all seeds and grains agree with me either.
I'm trying, really trying but this is SOOO much more difficult than I expected. I am going to continue to try find a solution to my issue.

I do have a carb addiction and I can admit that. Baby steps, one step at a time.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
