605-amy-loves-new-quest-bars

As many of you already know, I’m a huge fan of the Quest Protein Bars. I love pretty much everything about them. They are convenient, tasty and chock full of non-scary ingredients. In my last review, I talked about the peanut butter and vanilla almond flavors. Today I want to tell you about three new flavors that will leave your taste buds tap dancing on your tongue.

Review: Westbrae Natural Unsweetened Ketchup by Amy Dungan

605-review-westbrae-ketchup

I’ve always loved ketchup. As a child it was my go-to condiment. Judging from the way my children use ketchup, I’d hazard a guess that it’s as popular as ever. The largest problem with this tasty tomato treat is that most brands are loaded with sugar – corn syrup to be exact. This is by far one of my least favorite ingredients. I’ve searched high and low for a brand of ketchup that I would be comfortable offering to my family. I’ve managed to find one nationally popular brand that fit the bill, but my kids tell me it “tastes funny”. (I have no idea what they are talking about; it tastes fine to me.) So my search has continued for ketchup that tastes “right” to them and yet doesn’t contain sugar.

Review: Jennie’s Coconut Macaroons by Amy Dungan

605-review-jennies-coconut-macaroons

If you like coconut, you probably have a soft spot for coconut macaroons. If you are also living the low-carb lifestyle, you probably miss coconut macaroons as well. I wasn’t so much a coconutty kind of person before starting a low-carb diet, so macaroons weren’t something I ate often, if at all. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I had the full-sugar version. I’m telling you this so you’ll know that I can’t really compare this product to it’s high-carb counterpart, since I can’t recall what they were like. What I can do is tell you what I think of Jennie’s Coconut Macaroons.

Review: Atkins Day Break Cherry Pecan Bars by Amy Dungan

605-review-atkins-day-break-cherry-pecan-bars

One of the biggest lamentations I hear about low-carb living is the lack of convenience foods. If you have a job or schedule that requires you to constantly be on the go, it can be a challenge. You can pre-cook a lot of food and keep it in a cooler near by, but that doesn’t always work out either. For those that don’t mind a little “frankenfood” now and then, you do have the options of products like Atkins Day Break Cherry Pecan Bars.
