Quest Nutrition was so kind to send me a sample box of their awesome protein bars!

They are GLUTEN FREE for all you lovers of gluten free products!  They also have NO ADDED sugar or artificial sweeteners.

The cinnamon roll, strawberry cheesecake, Lemon Cream Pie, and Chocolate peanut butter all have sugar alcohols in them, but the most is 5 grams per bar, and again they all have 20 grams of protein!

You can read about Sugar Alcohols here.

The cinnamon roll flavor seriously tasted like I was eating a real cinnamon roll.  Who wouldn’t love that!!?

I think this one might be dessert tonight!!

One negative is that the original line does contain sucralose which is an artificial sweetener, which I do try to avoid.

The other night I had the apple pie bar, and I warmed it in the microwave for 15 seconds and it tasted like warm apple pie without the guilt!

With only 3 grams of sugar, you have a healthy dessert!

The good thing about these protein bars are that they don’t have that chalky protein taste to them.  They have tons of flavor and I actually ENJOY eating them, unlike some other protein bars I’ve had.

The peanut butter supreme was also amazing if you are a peanut butter fan like I am!

The coconut cashew was so sweet and it kept me full for hours!

I love food 022

I haven’t made my way through the whole box yet, but I haven’t been disappointed yet!  I am excited to try the rest!

Have you ever tried Quest Protein Bars?

All this talk about food brings me to another meal and dessert that I had the other night that I really wanted to share with you guys because it is the bomb!

First, Pasta Fagioli with Parmesan cheese on top.

I’m glad this recipe called to blend the beans, because I am all about textures and I hate the texture of beans.  I’m trying to get over it.

A veggie salad with mini “healthy croutons” and a cheesewich on low car tortilla, yes I said cheesewich- melted on the panini grill. I wanted to eat this meal all over again!

And a Low carb and sugar  HEALTHY dessert!

Protein Brownie For One

The only difference is this time I used UMP (Ultimate Muscle Protein) Vanilla instead of chocolate. I think I actually liked it better with the vanilla but you can decide for yourself when you try it 🙂
