I must be looking at the wrong "fit elite" bars. The ones I found on drugstore.com were 380 calories each - yiks! Then when I searched on Nashua Nutrition it had zero search results. Umm - what am I doing wrong?

Default Waffles

Funny thing. I decided to buy a waffle maker and make a batch of PB Quest waffles. They were ok but like the 'cookies' I found a little taste of something.

Well I wrapped one up and left it on the counter for later. For some reason the wrap was not all around the waffle and it became hard...but crunchy and I thought it was really great! Who knew! I took a piece tonight because I was starting to feel hungry and it was nice to crunch on it. I could see myself dipping it into something...not sure what.

Unfortunately for me the big C is back. I had a little problem during the first few days but this is my third week and I have been having problems during the last few days. I had been using Restorolax but not helping anymore for some reason. Making myself a cup of senna tea to help with this. Don't want to use it too much but I really need it now.

ok enough about that subject...not really in the domain of Alternative...

Later Peeps

You can get them at GNC stores (there are several in Ottawa). The powders are great for shakes, and also for making the baked muffins, cookies, waffles, rolls. All the flavors are really good, I love the PB, chocolate, salted caramel for shakes.
Lucky for us in Canada, most of the bars are still the old formula which are OP. (be sure to check ingredients, if there is no soluble corn fiber, it's the old formula)

The powders come in big jugs, 29 servings. net carbs 2g for chocolate (4g - 2g fiber).
If you go to nashuanutrition.com all the quest products are shown there with all nutrition info

If you go back through this thread, there are lots of posts with recipes; here's a couple of recent ones:

Basic recipe that most people seem to use:
One dry packet mix; one egg white; 1/2 tsp baking powder; any spices or extracts; enough water (prob 3 T) to get consistency of what you are making (thick for muffins, cakes, cookies: thinner for waffles or pancakes).
Bake at 350 for cookies, muffins, cakes, rolls. maybe 15 min, but could be more for bigger/less for smaller items
You can also add some shredded zucchini (blot and dry as much as possible).
For savory- add onion powder, garlic powder, herbs, etc.
For sweet - cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, other extracts, etc...stevia/splenda if wanted

generous sprinkle of onion powder
generous sprinkle of garlic powder
2 oz. ICE COLD water

Combine all ingredients in bowl and transfer to baking sheet and form into a bun. Sprinkle top with more onion or garlic powder and bake at 375 for 20 minutes. I usually do this in my toaster oven.

You can either eat as is or cut in 1/2 and toast.

I also made "crackers" with the MP powder, but I still need to experiment with them. I don't think I rolled it out thin enough and they weren't as crunchy as I was hoping for, but the flavor was excellent.

Also, Quest makes a chip alternative that I think are awesome. AND they are unrestricted. As long as you are not expecting a "potato chip", I think you will like them. They are a cracker / chip kind of thing, but they are crunchy and salty, which I love.
Also, you may see references to Janeva's cookbook - many really good recipes there, she uses strictly IP packets, but you can easily substitute. She has a FB page, and lots of her recipes are on there as well.
have fun experimenting!!

ATTENTION!!!! Quest has a new flavor available! Cookies & Cream.

I wish I could buy a single packet to try it before I commit to a tub, but I would be willing to bet that it would taste mighty fine as a cookie!!!

This is very exciting! Does Nashua not have samples? I believe someone had posted a while back that GNC would let you bring the product back if you didn't like it. Not sure where you typically buy your Quest powder.

Our Wegmans carries a ton of Quest powders & bars, including single packs that you can try before you buy a large size powder & single bars, so you can try before you buy a box.
