Good morning to all of you! I am sitting in disbelief this morn at the calendar, realizing that it is almost October!
Where has the year gone? I can’t believe that we are already in the holiday season…….because yes, October starts that season! It is literally one holiday after another for the next 5 months. What does this mean? Lots of food, family time, and fun…..uh the food is the problem here, lol!
BUT…….I have a new food addiction. It is a good one to have, I promise! I came home a couple of weeks (yes it has taken weeks to get this up) ago to a lovely little box just for me. Might I mention with way more items in it than I expected!
Clark from Quest Nutrition was so kind to send me a box of there goodies to try out. I was like a kid on Christmas morning when I opened that box up……practicing for this holiday season you see….with so many goodies to try in one box, I couldn’t decide which one to go with first! Oh and the kid in me of course came out and wanted to try them all at once.
But I was able to control myself a little. I picked up one bar, tore into that package, and just chomped a big chunk out of it. I was in love at first bite! From that moment on I would enjoy one of my lovely little bars each afternoon before my workout time.
They are perfect for on the go. The protein will keep you full for hours! I would eat one around 3:00 (about an hour before my workout), and when our usual dinner time at 6:00 rolled around I still felt full! Makes for a really great breakfast with your coffee on those mornings that you are running out the door…..and the list of flavors they offer is amazing!
- vanilla almond crunch
- chocolate peanut butter
- apple pie
- cinnamon roll
- chocolate brownie
- strawberry cheesecake
- mixed berry bliss
- coconut cashew
- peanut butter supreme
- lemon cream pie
- peanut butter & jelly
- banana nut muffin
- chocolate chip cookie dough
Not a shabby list if I say so myself! All of the flavors were so yummy. I seriously didn’t have one bar that I disliked. Now I have to be honest and say that some I totally loved over the others, but I would gladly purchase any of the flavors they have. My favorite was absolutely the coconut cashew & chocolate chip cookie dough. You guys know this girl loves some coconut and chocolate chip cookies!
They also sent me some of their peanut butter cups from the cravings line, as well as the pasta to try. I have to honestly say that I prefer a bar over the cups any day. I haven’t had the opportunity to try the pasta yet. We haven’t had any pasta in our dinners lately, but as soon as I try it I will let you guys know what I think about it!
So thanks Clark for the bars, I have really enjoyed all of them, and I look forward to future variations :)
