KETO PRODUCT REVIEW: QUEST KETO PRODUCTS


With JR and Victoria from the Quest Keto Team!

With JR and Victoria from the Quest Keto Team!

I was recently invited by the team at Quest to visit their offices in El Segundo and learn more about their products. Before I visited I wasn't aware of that they even had products other than Quest bars, but I soon learned they are much more than just the bars! 

The team was super nice. They gave me a tour of their office and then we sat down for over an hour and talked all things Keto! My daughter was with me too and her eyes lit up when they started bringing in all of the different Keto-approved products they have been working on!

At first I was a little bit skeptical because I am not the biggest fan of pre-prepared foods. I really love to cook and the idea of feeding myself and my daughter packaged foods isn't something I have ever felt very good about. In fact, another low carb brand had previously approached me about working with them and trying their frozen foods and I declined. But I was impressed by the team at Quest and their dedication and knowledge about the Keto lifestyle, so I decided to give their meals a try and I am very glad I did! 

These meals are obviously super convenient, which is the #1 selling point. I am a single, working mom of a busy 12 year old who has either club volleyball or conditioning almost every night of the week. Typically we are away from the house from 7:45am to 8:15pm every weekday, so even though I love cooking, it is IMPOSSIBLE to eat a freshly cooked meal much of the time. So during the long club volleyball season (November through June), we need some quicker options! 

THIS IS WHERE QUEST KETO PRODUCTS REALLY SAVE THE DAY!

Meals on meals on meals! 

Meals on meals on meals! 

You can see in the photo to the right all of the different meals they gave me to try! I love that there are great breakfast options as well as lunch and dinner meals. 

The Quest Keto website says "Take the guesswork out of measuring your macros and enjoy all the benefits of a deliciously Ketogenic Diet." Sounds good right?!

Here are my thoughts on if they live up to the hype! 

 

** NOTE AS I TRY NEW ITEMS I WILL PUT THEM AT THE TOP OF THE REVIEW LIST! 

 

QUEST KETO BACON EGG AND CHEESE BISCUIT

Quest Keto Bacon Egg and Cheese Biscuit with a little extra bacon on the side:)

DELICIOUS! You can taste the delicious fat in this one. Super filling and tastes just like a regular breakfast sandwich, actually better in my opinion! I paired it with a little extra bacon and drizzled Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil on top (I do this on everything). 

I baked the sandwich up in the oven at 325 for 10 minutes. When I made the sausage biscuit I remember it got a little crispy, this one did not, it stayed nice and soft!

Quest Keto Cheese Pizza Flatbread, I added 2 pieces of Salami to the top:) 

All of the Quest Keto meals can either be microwaved or baked in the oven (or toaster oven), I chose to use the oven.

I added 2 pieces of Applegate Organic Salami on top and then threw it in the oven. I baked the Cheese Flatbread Pizza in the oven at 350 for about 12 minutes or so. When I pulled it out it looked and smelled delicious! 

On the Quest Keto website the photo shows 2 pieces of pizza, my dish only had one, so I am not sure what the typical serving is but I would still be hungry after 1 piece of pizza for sure! But the taste was great! The dough was light and flakey and it tasted just like Pizza:) I love that you can add your own toppings if you want to! When it was done cooking I drizzled some Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil on top for a even more high quality fats.

Quest Keto Bacon Cheddar Mushroom Frittata

Quest Keto Bacon Cheddar Mushroom Frittata

I ended up eating this yummy frittata for brunch on a Saturday. I am always a little skeptical of microwaved eggs, but I did it because the cleaning lady was at my house and I was trying to get out of the way! 

So I popped this in for 2 1/2 minutes on high in its container and then let it sit for a minute or so. Then I put it on a plate, added some pink salt and pepper, and then drizzled Bulletproof Brain Octane on top (I try to put this on top of everything I eat if I have a bottle close by!). 

The flavor was GREAT! It was very filling too. Would be great with some sour cream, but was awesome alone. I think I almost like it better than the Spinach and Egg Bake I make?! This one also looks a little different than the picture on the website because theirs is round, but in the real one you can actually see all of the ingredients better.

Quest Keto Cheeseburger Hash

Quest Keto Cheeseburger Hash

When my daughter and I were at the Quest office I mentioned my love for In-N-Out burgers protein style and JR mentioned that their Cheeseburger Hash tasted just like that! 

So the other night when I heated this up in the oven for my daughter after a volleyball practice, I had to take a couple bites! I have to say it is really good! May not look super appetizing after you take it out of the container, but I promise it tastes better than it looks. I would say a nice bed of crunchy romaine lettuce would be good with it too to add some freshness.

Quest Keto Asian Style Pork Stir Fry

Quest Keto Asian Style Pork Stir Fry

One of the fun things about these meals for me, is how you can add other ingredients to kind of "make them my own". So for this one I added cauliflower rice to the Quest meal

Just like most of the others I used the oven directions, I think that would always be preferred over microwave. The flavor was delicious and the cauliflower rice made it more substantial. I buy my Cauliflower Rice at Trader Joe's, and then I heat it up in a skillet with olive oil, pink salt and pepper. I also tossed a little Liquid Aminos in there. Then I drizzled Bulletproof Brain Octane on top of this one too.

Quest Keto Almond Butter & Raspberry Jam Sandwich

Quest Keto Almond Butter & Raspberry Jam Sandwich

So I didn't actually eat this one, I sent it with my daughter for school lunch. You keep it frozen and then just set it out when you want to defrost it and eat it. My daughter really liked it! She said the bread tasted like my Keto bread, but she also mentioned the jelly tasted a little artificial and kind of sour. 

The sandwich comes with the bread and the fillings separate, so you spread them together.

I won't rate this one since I didn't actually try it, but my daughter thought it was great and it is definitely a nice option for Keto Kids and their school lunches!

Quest Keto Cinnamon Roll

Quest Keto Cinnamon Roll

This is one of the main meals I was excited to try! Who doesn't love a Cinnamon Roll?! I heated it up in the oven at 325 for about 10 minutes. I heated the frosting up in the microwave for 15 seconds. 
 

I actually split the roll with my daughter because we tried the Sausage Egg & Cheese Biscuit the same morning. We both really liked it! The frosting has a cream cheese frosting taste, very sweet in my opinion, but I tend to think everything is really sweet. My daughter thought it was perfect. The roll was warm and soft on the inside and definitely had a coconut flavor to it. Very good! This would make a great Christmas morning breakfast or any other special occasion.

Quest Keto Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit

Quest Keto Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit

I was excited for this one too, because I love a breakfast sandwich! On mornings where I am hungry I usually get a Starbucks breakfast sandwich and just throw the bread away and eat the middle. No need to do that here! I heated the sandwich up in the oven at 325 for 10 minutes. The biscuit got crispy, I may actually cover it with foil next time so it stays a bit softer. 

I also drizzled Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil on the inside and pink salt and pepper. The flavor was great! Savory sausage, yummy biscuit and a cheesy egg! We gobbled it up FAST!

Quest Keto Beef and Sausage Bolongnese with Zucchini

Yummy, yummy, yummy! This meal was delicious! As you can see I sauteed some kale with garlic and put the Quest Keto Beef and Sausage Bolongnese with Zucchini on top, WHAT A COMBO! The meal has a wonderful kick to it and the flavors were wonderful and the kale added a really nice freshness. I would also eat this with some Miracle Noodles for an italian dinner. 

I will be craving this one for sure!

SHIPPING & PRICING

So as you can see I was overall SUPER impressed with the Quest Keto meals! I still have 2 more in my freezer and once I eat those I will add those reviews to this list. The variety of options is great and I really think these will be a key part to fueling my daughter and I through this busy club volleyball season! 

The one complaint I have seen the most when I was doing some research online was the cost of shipping when you order these meals on Quest Keto's website. I put 15 meals in my shopping cart and Standard Overnight Shipping is $44.76 and Priority Overnight Shipping is $46.64. So the total for those 15 meals would be $103.60 including tax, add that shipping in and we're at about $150. That breaks down to $10 a meal in total costs, which is really not that bad. But I almost feel like they should just include the shipping cost in the meal cost because it is tough to swallow such a large shipping cost. I would rather be "tricked" into thinking it was free shipping and more expensive food haha. But maybe that is just me.

I don't mind paying for convenience, I have really enjoyed the food and I do love the option of using these as a base and adding a couple of things to them. Do yourself and give them a try and let me know how you like them! I am super grateful to the Quest team for inviting me into their world! They have so many yummy things in the works which will make living Keto so much easier! 

 

SOME OTHER TASTY GOODIES FROM QUEST!

Waffle Flavored Quest Cereal Bar- tastes just like a buttery waffle! 

Waffle Flavored Quest Cereal Bar- tastes just like a buttery waffle! 

The lovely people at Quest gave me a ton of goodies to try, not just the Keto meals! First they gave us the new Quest Cereal Bars in Chocolate FlavorWaffle Flavor and Cinnamon Flavor. My daughter is OBSESSED with the Waffle bars! They really do taste just like a delicious, buttery waffle I don't know how they do it! Personally the waffle one tastes really sweet to me so I actually prefer the Cinnamon, but from what I have seen on Instagram most everyone else is in love with Waffle! Best of all they have 2-3g of net carbs per bar depending on the flavor.  

I would also recommend you think a little outside the box when it comes to these bars, because my daughter made an amazing ice cream cake by mixing the chocolate bar with butter to create a crust, froze it into a shape, and then topped it with Halo Top ice cream! I'll have to post that recipe one of these days! But I could also see the other flavors used as crusts for Keto Cheesecake and other desserts! 

Chocolate Quest Cereal Bar mixed with Kerrygold Butter to create a "cookie cup" for ice cream!

I also used the Quest Cereal Bars to make a cheesecake crust, I used 2 Cinnamon Flavor bars ground up in the food processor and then mixed with 1/3 of a stick of Kerrygold butter melted down. I pressed the combo into the base of my adorable heart shaped ramekins. The cheesecake is 1 stick of cream cheese, approx 2 oz of HWC, a big dollop of sour cream, 2 packets of Stevia, and Meyer Lemon zest for freshness. I mixed all of that in food processor until smooth, I used HWC to thin it out a bit. Then I set it all in the fridge, pulled it out 1/2 an hour before I wanted to eat it so the crust wasn't too hard and it was PERFECT! I didn't make the cheesecake mixture too sweet because I knew the cinnamon roll crust would add sweetness, so it was the perfect balance- definitely a keeper!!

So this is a Quest Labs product, which is an exclusive program consumers can sign up for and then you get to test out new products. So these are not available to purchase yet, but they are amazing so I would assume they will be for sale very, very soon! 

I did not expect these chips to taste like real chips- BUT THEY DO!!!! Light and crispy and delicious they are amazing! I mean I haven't had real chips in over 11 months since I went Keto, but these taste as good as I remember! I paired them with Trader Joe's Spinach & Artichoke Dip, which is delicious and only 2 carbs per serving. The chips are just 2 Net carbs per bag, the photo is 2 bags. YUM!!!!

2 Net Carbs per bag

5/5 stars for this one!
