Yes, I follow a primal diet. Yes, I sometimes supplement whey protein. I don’t feel that there is anything wrong with whey protein supplementation. My body tolerates it well, and sometimes I am in a rush or on the go and don’t have the time to cook eggs and meat. That being said, if you’re into the fitness game, you’ve probably heard of Quest Bars by Quest Nutrition. If you haven’t, you”re missing out! The thing about these bars in the nutritional profile. 20g of protein and only 4-5 net carbs! Very low in sugar and not high in fat. Also, they are made with milk and whey protein and are completely SOY FREE (If you know me and how much I despise soy products, you get why this makes me so excited)! It is a perfect bar for anyone who needs quick protein after a workout, or if you are on the go and need some clean eats!
Suzi’s Review: Today, I got the chance to try Quest Nutrition’s Apple Pie Protein Bar. I’ve had other flavors before (and will post reviews for them, too!), but this is my first time trying the Apple Pie flavor. What did it taste like? Well, APPLE PIE! The flavor was spot on. It has the same consistency of other “white” Quest Bars (if you have had them before, you know what I mean). Raw, it is chewy and a very forward apple and spice flavor. The consistency is chewy and soft, compared to the Chocolate Brownie flavor which is a bit harder. Microwaved, WOW! This flavor is intensified so much. I break these in half and microwave on a piece of parchment paper for about 20 seconds and let it cool a little bit (if you don’t let it cool it’s like touching molten lava). The bar turns into a soft, gooey, chewy “cookie”. You will really enjoy this “cheat” snack. Okay…maybe it’s not a “cheat”, but it tastes like one!
