So yes I have another product review for all you loyal readers out there!
Quest Bars! Heard of 'em? I hadn't until I was given the opportunity to review their stuff!
Quest bars are:
Nutrition Bars - carbs - gluten + protein + fiber - sugar (of any kind) - soy protein = YUM!
They call themselves the bar that is known for what it isn't. How cool and creative is that? I was soooo impressed that they tasted as good as they did without ANY sugar. That means no sugar, no sugar alcohols, no artificial sweetener. Nothing.
They have sooo much fiber - like 17g a bar! And around 20ish grams of protein. That's pretty amazing if you ask little ole me!
Doesn't seem as if all my snacking revolves around studying chem? Probably stress induced snacking :S
Oh look! No chem book! :) The peanut butter supreme is probably my favorite. Or the PB&J. Hard call.
They are delicious. At first I was a little taken aback by the texture. Just not what I was expecting. They are definitely not a granola bar. They are very chewy and at first, a little gritty. But that was only with the first one - all the other types I've tried have added things in them (i.e. nuts) so the texture if fabulous.
Overall - a super delicious bar with great nutritional value, especially if you are one of the many people in this world that are much stronger than I am and follow a low-carb diet. :/ Man-I get upset just thinking about a day without bread, granola, oatmeal!
Oh-I almost forgot! Quest also sells "Cravings"
They are real food that tastes like candy. Full of protein (20 grams) and only 4g of carbs.
What are they exactly? Peanut butter cups! Yes-that's right! :)
In other news...
I had a take-out salad from Hy-vee the other day! How cool is that?! I didn't even know you could do that! Just fill up your take-out bowl with whatever-the-heck-you-want off the salad bar, weigh it, and away you go. Oh, I forgot pay. Before you go and after you weigh it :)
I tried hash browns on the waffle iron the other day (yes I stole it from Pinterest!)
Just make sure your waffle iron is UBBER hot, spray it with non-stick spray, through some thawed hash browns (if they were first frozen of course :P ) and shut the lid...
about 5 minutes later you have these little beauties!
And think-they were made in a jif, with little to no oil!
Thank you yet again Pinterest.
Happy Friday to all!
Peace. Love. and Peanut Butter.
