I always have the munchies. Not so much during the day, but definitely in the evenings. I know I shouldn’t snack late at night. I should be good. I should say no. I should capitalize on good eating choices made during the day. I should do all of these things. But don’t.
The evening rolls around. I’m tired. After driving kids hither, thither, and yon for soccer practices, swim practices, and Scouts…I’m exhausted. Perhaps homework was a struggle. I often still have work to do. Or chores that didn’t get done during the day. Whatever the reason, I’m usually tired.
Finally, the kids go to bed. I want to eat something. But what? I’m tired, which means I will more than likely not make the best food choice. I crave salty snacks. I love sweet treats as well, but salty snacks are my favorite. I try to alleviate the evening snacking by not eating, but the pull of the pantry is too strong. I am drawn to check out the snacks. I stumble to the pantry…
Last week, when I made my nightly pantry raid, I found a couple of bags of chips. One was sea salt. The bright blue of the packet caught my eye. I crave salty snacks so the sea salt was right up my alley. I love the crunch of chips. I opened the bag and selected a chip. The first flavor I tasted was definitely salty…sea salt to be precise. The flavor was not strong, but muted. I liked it. The second flavor was the chip itself. It tasted less like a potato chip and more like a cracker, but still had the crunch that I liked.
I took a second look at the chips. I had selected a bag of Quest Protein Sea Salt Chips. It was tasty. Different to the chips I am used to eating. The chips were baked so far less greasy. Each bag of Quest Protein Sea Salt Chips has 21 grams of healthy protein with only 5 grams of total carbs. I was surprised at how short and spare the ingredient list was…Protein Blend (Milk Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate), Dried Potatoes, Corn Starch, and High Oleic Sunflower Oil with less than 2% of Sea Salt, Calcium Carbonate, and Natural Flavors.
Quest Nutrition’s mission is to revolutionize food and make healthy eating fun. Quest Nutrition’s first product, the Quest bar, was created to show that healthy food can taste “amazing with zero compromises.” I have tried the Quest Protein Chips in Sea Salt, BBQ, and Cheddar & Sour Cream, but Quest Nutrition also manufactures Quest Protein Bars in a variety of flavors, including, Cookies & cream, Double Chocolate Chunk, White Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and so many more. You can also purchase Quest Pasta…Spaghetti and Spinach Fettuccine…and Quest Cravings Protein Peanut Butter Cups.
