I am not a nutritional bar person, but these are the exception. Quest bars are legit. I love the texture, they taste great, and the nutritionals are top notch with limited carbohydrates and added sugars. Cookie Dough is my favorite, but I actually haven't encountered a flavor I haven't enjoyed.
Last time I ordered, I saw there was Quest Pasta. Why not? I added it to the order. I've had shirataki noodles in the past and I figured this would be similar.
Last night I was making pasta for my husband and decided I would try the Spinach Fettuccine. I knew the smell would be bad based on my experience with Shirataki, but this was a new level of stench. I rinsed them with water and microwaved them for a minute before putting them in the pan with garlic and onions. I made a alfredo-ish sauce with sour cream, egg, laughing cow cheese wedge and added it to the pan.
The whole bag is 40 calories, so even with the alfredo sauce, it was relatively low cal and healthy. I also made a delicious massaged kale salad. My doctor suggested eating more dark leafy greens, so I am on a kale kick.
My husband doesn't eat smelly noodles or kale, so I made him a simple garlic butter spaghetti with panko crusted chicken and an arugula salad with shaved Parmesan. He was working super late, so I wanted to make sure he at least had a good meal to look forward to when he got home at 9PM.
Everyone posts pictures of the finished product, but I want to see the process. Here's what my process looks like. I have a system, and I love the routine of putting together a meal, and then cleaning up.
Organized chaos at its finest.
Foul smelling food that you find delicious? Parmesan, smoked trout, roasted broccoli, Brussels Sprouts. My husband loves Marmite which he agrees smells disgusting. I think it tastes and smells gross, but he begs to differ.
Have you tried Quest bars? Favorite flavor?
