How Do Step One Foods Products Taste | Heart Healthy Foods
It's a question we often get asked. After all, if it’s healthy, it must taste like cardboard, right?
Other products taste like that because they are made from chemical powders and low quality ingredients. Our mission was to change this with Step One Foods.
When we started Step One Foods, our mandate was to not only come up with foods that were good for us, but ones that also:
- met specific nutrition benchmarks
- demonstrated the ability to positively affect health
- were made of only real, whole-food ingredients
- and tasted so good people would want to eat them on a regular basis
In other words, taste was a priority from the outset. After all, you can’t change health through food if people won’t eat it.
To get to our first 3 goals we had to use only the finest whole-food ingredients - like the highest quality Belgian chocolate, walnuts, almonds and pecans – because the published research led us there. Additives, preservatives, chemicals and various isolates are barely safe, let alone health promoting – so they were eliminated as possible inclusions from the get go.
Fortunately for us, when you combine excellent, whole-food ingredients, you get wonderful flavor.
To be sure, if you’re used to eating foods full of chemicals and various additives our foods will taste different. But they certainly won’t taste like cardboard. And if you give it a few tries you will actually prefer the taste of Step One over what you were eating before. In fact, did you know our taste buds are constantly renewing themselves, changing out completely every 2 to 3 weeks? This is probably why studies have shown that - with sustained exposure - preferences for certain foods can be modified...typically within 2 to 3 weeks. And you'll start noticing that what your body naturally craves is real food packed with real nutrients. That is what we offer. Many of our customers often comment that as they use our foods, their taste preferences change.
"I’m new to Step One, but I had to say how much I love the taste of all of the products. It’s refreshing to purchase something like this that isn’t overly sweet! I can’t stand the taste of non-caloric “natural” sweeteners. More of the real stuff is so much better. I’m excited to receive my next order."
