Favorite Snacks I Eat That Actually Taste Good
Ok not going to lie, I have been avoiding writing this because I truly cannot sum up my ALL TIME FAVORITE protein snacks into one blog post, but I am going to try my best! Honestly I owe alot of my need-to-satisfy-my-unhealthy-cravings-but-make-it-healthier snacks all to Quest Nutrition. I’ve been eating Quest items for yearsssssss – so with that being said, thank you to Quest Nutrition for sponsoring today’s post. Truly a dream come true to work with a brand I already love, eat daily, and have repurchased for years!
On The Go
Quest Bars: My biggest issue with maintaining a healthy lifestyle is eating out of convenience! I will fast and then literally forget to eat until late afternoon then forget again until late at night and then it’s to the drive through or ordering to-go! It’s such a bad cycle and I am trying my very best to stop it but one of the best ways I’ve been able to combat this is the classic Quest Nutrition bars! I have narrowed down my all time favorite flavors: peanut butter, cookies & cream, and chocolate chip cookie dough.

Mini Bars: They also have mini Quest Bars as well if you don’t want to carry around the original in cookies & cream and chocolate chip cookie dough! I love that they made these smaller ones – I like keeping one in my purse!

The Quest Mini Chocolate Protein Bar has 80 calories, 8 grams of protein, 2g net carbs with less than 1g sugar, 5g fiber*
Protein Shakes: In addition to the bars, I also LOVE the pre-made protein shakes. This is perfect for when I am in the car running around doing errands and completely forgetting to eat! This usually happens in the morning so if I can grab one of these and either drink on my own or even add to an iced coffee, I’m good to go! It keeps me full and tastes delicious. I honestly enjoy all the flavors but if I HAD to choose, chocolate is my favorite!

Smoothie Must Haves
One of my absolute FAVORITE snacks is a good high-protein delicious smoothie! I truly do not think there is anything better. I honestly am not too picky about the frozen fruit I put in BUT I am picky about the protein powder I use! I love the Quest Nutrition one with any frozen fruit I have. I love the traditional chocolate or vanilla milkshake flavors, but definitely need to explore more.

Savory Snack Favorite
Protein Chips: Ok I know I’m not the only one who craves chips! I absolutely LOVE chips. Sour cream and onion, nacho cheese, chili lime, ranch, bbq…. you name the flavor and 99% chance I will love them haha. I’m honestly not sure what magic Quest Nutrition did here but if you’re looking for an actually-tastes-delicious chip alternative, I FOUND IT! These taste delicious, have a realllllllly good crunch (the best part, duh) AND curb my chip craving instantly! My favorite flavors so far have been sour cream & onion, nacho cheese, and ranch!

Ultimate Sweet Tooth
And last but definitely not least… the sweet tooth. When I tell you Quest Nutrition has got me COVERED here. This is probably my all-time-favorite category so let’s dive into it!
Mini Peanut Butter Cups: If you love a good peanut butter cup, look no further. THESE TASTE INCREDIBLE! They have larger ones but I prefer the mini’s because I can toss 2-3 in my purse and eat one when I have a chocolate craving!
Quest Peanut Butter Cups less than 1g of sugar and 1g of net carbs and 4g fiber*
Mini Quest Peanut Butter Cups less than 1g of sugar and 1g of net carbs and 4g fiber*
Fudge Brownie Bites: Yup, you read that right. I cannot believe how DELICIOUS these are! It truly tastes like a traditional ooey gooey candy bar without all the sugar.

Protein Cookies: Again, you read this correctly! Good tasting protein cookies! Moist, flavorful, chewy, no bad after taste… I’m telling you, magic! This cookie helps fill me up and I love eating one as an afternoon snack because it curbs my sweet tooth while providing enough protein to hold me over until dinner. My favorite flavor so far are peanut butter chocolate chip and plain peanut butter!

Frosted Cookies: These are a newer find and I have been loving them! They are a little fluffier of a cookie than the traditional version, so if you are looking for something “lighter” then this will be for you! I love both the vanilla and the chocolate.
