As nutrition coaches, we are always looking for healthy food options and ideas we can pass along to our clients. People are on the go today and are always looking for quick snacks they can keep in their briefcase, purse, gym bag or car. Convenience, taste, and satiety are three crucial factors when considering the best snack to maintain a healthy lifestyle. So, when we first heard about Quevos we were thrilled because Quevos delivers on all three.
When egg whites are the first ingredient listed, you have our attention. Egg whites are a great source of protein and it’s no secret that protein has numerous health benefits. Follow that up with pea protein (another good source of various amino acids) and high-quality fats like avocado oil and chia seeds and you’ve got us swooning (and drooling).
Take a look at the ingredients for most chips on the market today and you’ll usually find some variation of vegetable oil (canola, sunflower, safflower). These are fats which have ZERO nutritional benefits and should not be eaten on a regular basis. Quevos shows its commitment to being a healthy snack by choosing the highest quality ingredients.
3. Balanced Macronutrients
A balanced diet is a healthy diet. We absolutely love that Quevos chips have a balanced macronutrient profile. One bag delivers 15g of protein, 9g of dietary fat, and 12g of carbohydrate, 9g of which are fiber. In our experience, most clients have a hard time reaching the RDA recommended 25-40g of fiber per day. Quevos provides a healthy (and tasty) way to work towards that target as a complement to whole food sources like vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, and seeds.
Quevos flavors exceeded our taste expectations. We’ve gotten used to settling when it comes to healthy snacks. Gone are the days that a chip alternative should have to taste like cardboard! Each member of our team has a unique favorite flavor, which should tell you that you really can’t go wrong when choosing which bag of Quevos to dive into.
One of the pillars we have built Beyond The Box Nutrition on is education. We want our clients to be fully informed about how nutrition affects the quality of their lives. Quevos understands that people deserve a better chip option and they’ve delivered it. Quevos speaks to people who want quality ingredients without having to compromise taste or convenience. We are excited to share Quevos with our clients. Quevos is a great snack option for athletes, casual gym goers, busy moms, dads, students, and working professionals. Whether someone is following Keto, Paleo, eating “clean”, eating low-carb, Whole30, or just trying to eat healthier, Quevos keeps nutrition a priority in their life.
