Protein Chips



Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the Quest Protein chips? What did you think? I got some and I thought that they were OK. I just like the fact that I can have a few and it satisfies my craving while getting some Protein too. :)

I tried some before surgery but they were like packing peanuts to me. I just don't do chips anymore.

I bought them once at a convenience store. They are terrible! They really taste bad, but if you totally cover them in salsa or something else, they might be useful as a means of delivering the salsa to your mouth. I thought they tasted like cardboard and could not finish the small bag.

I had the BBQ and I think the sour cream and onion ones and they were good. Just had them once though because I was never a chip person but good amount of Protein.

I tried the BBQ ones and I didn't like them at all.. I love, on the other hand, the Quest Protein Bars

I haven't tried them because I can't find them for sale anywhere as singles. I don't really like chips, I am not a snacker.

However they are used in some of the Quest recipes. I am going to place an order with Quest and get some to cook with.

I have about a bag every other day... Easy Protein, delicious. Texture is a little weird at first for some people, but I personally think the Cheddar and Sour Cream ones are FANTASTIC!

they are expensive and when i tried 2 different flavors , both times i thought the bag they came in tasted better than the chips...If you need chips i'd recommend the edamame chips from trader joes, or the Maya Kaimal chickpea chips, especially the sea salt ones, oh my are they good, and with some fresh salsa, can be good for you as well and fill that snack urge. But chips are also my big weakness, i have developed an addiction to bbq flavored Pork rinds. They go amazingly well with hummus.

I bought some but haven't tried them yet. Wanted to try making some of the recipes from their website with them

I ordered some to try.

I found the ones I tried were ok. They certainly don't taste as good as potato chips, and like potato chips won't "fill you up", but for a quick, convenient way to get in some Protein I thought they were fine. They taste more like a bland pita chip (with flavoring) than a potato chip.

You can order individual bags from the Quest website rather than having to order them in bulk if you want to try the different flavors.

I'll try them in the future, I'm sure.

Can't be that bad with some salsa.

@@Dub I had the sea salt ones with salsa and guac last night, amazing! The biggest thing to keep in mind everyone is of course they won't taste like potato chips, potato chips are terrible for you. The grease and starch are delicious, but these are the best alternatives I've found. In no way are they ruffles or lays, but they get my 21g of Protein which is huge and they satisfy my crunch cravings.

Sounds like they'd work well for me.

I'll order some.

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.
