So I tried Quest bars…

So… school started today. It was a LONG day.

When I was registering for classes, I thought it was a SUPER good idea to try and plan all 5 of my classes in two days. Yeah. I know. I realized my mistake today, when I actually had to live it out. I will be spending 10 hours at school for this semester. I guess it is only two days a week. I will be ecstatic tomorrow when I don’t have school. At all. On a Wednesday. What?!?! YESSSSS!!!

Anyways, my bank account tanked this weekend

I bought my books for school yesterday and dropped a small fortune. That on top of my atrocious tuition. OH MY GOODNESS! We won’t dwell on that though. I’ve already shed more than enough tears.

Those are only half of them. I am still waiting for the rest to arrive. Joy.

Since I am at school All. Day Long. I have to find snacks and food that can easily be taken. I am not used to eating portable snacks, since I normally make my food at home or at least have a microwave when I worked. This is a change for me.

I see people eating Quest bars everywhere! I figured I would give them a try since they are full of protein and easy to grab and eat. I bought a box of the Cookies and Cream flavor the other day. Those things are not cheap! Geez.

I am not a fan. Maybe I need to try them warmed or made into cookies or something, but they were a waste of my $36 so far. They were tough and hard to chew. They were kind of chalky and tasted nothing like cookies and cream. I tried one of the cookie dough flavored ones sometime last year, and don’t remember if I liked it or not. I ate that one out of desperation, so I probably didn’t really even taste it. I am going to have to find a new snack to take with me. 

I was really upset at first that I didn’t like them. I wanted to like them so bad. All of the other people who are super fit and “healthy” eat them. I SHOULD like them.

After thinking these thoughts for a few minutes, I realized how silly that was. I didn’t like them. Why waste my time eating something that isn’t satisfying? There are so many other options.

This was just another reminder that I am my own person. I do not need to follow what others do. I need to do what makes me happy.

That was my lesson for the day.

Have a good night!

Any recipes for Quest bars? How do you eat them?
