Quest Nutrition on the Road.

My husband and I, recently attended the ABC KIDS SHOW in Las Vegas. While, we were super stoked about taking a mini vacation. We were also planning, on what and how we would eat. As some of you may know, I follow a iifym (if it fits you’re macros) diet. So even if we decided to splurge a little, it would be totally fine. So long as I can fit in my macros, granted we knew we didn’t want to eat out everyday while in Las Vegas. (1) It would be pricy (2) We didn’t want to go way off track on our diets, it’s so easy to gain the weight yet so hard to loose it.

So we went grocery shopping, for a few things to take back our hotel and cook up. We also had some AMAZING protein bars and protein chips, all thanks to Quest Nutrition for supplying us with these goodies. Which we ate on the road and while in Las Vegas, shared some with our friends and family. Keeping us on track with our diet’s. It’s okay to live a little, but also knowing you’re limits. All in moderation. 

Quest Nutrition on the Road

Still wondering about those Quest Bars I mentioned earlier?? Yeah, they’re pretty AMAZING. I’ve tried a few protein bars (Cliffs, Nature Valley,Larabar.. just to name a few) since starting my fitness journey. I gotta say; I was never impressed, some are too sweet, bland, and just the same ol taste and if you’re eating them as “snacks” in between you’re daily means; these can get boring and you just get tired of them. Do you know what I mean? We are human, and we do get cravings and that’s where Quest Bars & Quest Protein Chips, come in to play. They are soft, chewy, filling, taste is amazing BUT wait, not only do they taste amazing, but the Nurtitonal Facts are great, it has one of the highest whey proteins which is fantastic. The MACROS are not bad at all (check the back of each bar,they will differ based on the flavor you have) I fit them no problem. Cookies & Cream is one of favorite, taste just like C&C with only 1g of sugar? What? That’s insanely AMAZING. Do you catch my drift here?? You gotta try these bad boys. I sometimes replace these with my protein shakes, I mean they are so delicious.

Quest Bar Facts

Quest Bar – Cinnamon Roll made by me.

Overall, I highly recommend Quest Bars. Actually that’s the ONLY protein bar you’ll ever see in my home. Once you love something, everything else can’t compete. Some of my personal favorites are Cookies & Cream, Cookie Dough, Cinnamon Bun, Double Chocolate Chunk, Strawberry Cheesecake, Coconut Cashew. They are all amazing just listing a few of my favorite ones. Another thing I love about Quest Nutrition is they have these 15 second videos of different ways to eat you’re Quest Bars. I freaken LOVE these videos, I’ve tried a few myself. Check them out HERE

 

Lastly, Quest Nutritions came out with a new product. Chips!!  Protein Chips, that is. Those bad boys are also great. They are crunchy, flavorful, contain a total of 21g of protein; no soy, gluten free and only 5g total carbs. This is how we’ve been eating these chips. My husband always, has to have chips with his sandwiches. What, better way then to do it with Protein Chips that taste DELISH!!!! Quest Nutrition Meal

SewFatty takes 2014 ABC Kids Show

SewFatty Takes ABC KIDS SHOW

Whoa, what a blast! As many of you may know I had the opportunity to attend the ABC Kids Show 2014 – as an exhibitor for BalmBaby. Let’s just say it was amazing. Tons of great companies, from baby food to cloth diapers, to baby skin care, even a workout bench for toddlers. My hubby was able to join me which; was so awesome, it was like a mini vacation. We drove from San Diego to Arizona (had to drop off the munchkins at my parents house) then off to Las Vegas. 

If you’re wondering. What the ABC KIDS SHOW is all about ? It’s a expo where companies (big name brand to small new companies) come together to showcase their products. They all have, their own booths. Retailers, distributors walk the expo and check out the exhibitors booths to possibly carry their line of products depending on what the retailer/distributor is looking for.

It was such an amazing experience to be able to connect and network with such amazing people. I was able to meet some of my blogger and Instagram friends, which was like Christmas morning for me. I’ve known all these girls for like 3 years we all talk about everything and anything. So, to be able to meet them in person was the best thing ever ! I have to give a huge thanks to my boss’s Dominic & Malena Taylor for the opportunity

A huge thanks to Quest Nutrition for supplying us with protein bars and protein chips. Keeping me on track with my diet. Though, I will say we splurged a bit, but that’s okay. It’s okay to live a little, but also knowing you’re limits. All in moderation.

Here is video of our trip.
