*Clink, Chat & Catch Up!* w/ Steven Diebold, Creator of @PapaStevesBars!

We were excited to *CLINK, Chat & Catch Up!* with Steven Diebold, Brand & Business Strategist  Consultant, Researcher, Speaker - and the creator of Papa Steve's No Junk Protein Bars!!!
Let's tell you a bit about Steven & why he is passionate about Papa Steve's No Junk Protein Bars, in his own words:

"My name is Steven Diebold, Founder/Owner of Papa Steve's No Junk Protein Bars. I grew up fat as a kid, was teased, bullied and picked on then got tired of it all and decided to lose all that weight by becoming an athlete. I've been working out for the past 28 years struggling with keeping it off, so I realized I needed a better way. I needed to balance my blood sugar throughout the day better and manage my hunger with a raw meal replacement or healthy high protein snack that didn't spike my blood sugar and cause insulin rush.

I wanted to feel good about eating and not worry about putting a bunch of processed junk or sugar laden syrups in my body everyday. I didn't want to spike my blood sugar. I wanted real raw food- not fake food.

I saw most protein bars are just disguised candy bars covered in chocolate with some protein thrown in. So I spent an enormous amount of time researching food science and nutrition, talking to dietitians, evaluating every single protein bar on the market to figure out what all these ingredients were on their packages. Then I decided to take my product development skills as a user experience designer and challenge myself to design and bring to market my own protein bar in 120days.

I started by setting up my kitchen as a science lab. I started reverse engineering other bars to see how they were made and why they used certain ingredients over others...

Papa Steve´s No Junk Raw Protein Bars use only best I could find while still keeping the price low. We only use fresh raw or natural nuts, seeds, fruit, whey and pea protein. Only natural sugars from the fruit, natural fruit and nut fibers and raw organic sweeteners have been used. Which means that you will be putting into your body the best foods for energy and recovery from workouts and sustained energy!"
Steven taught us many things in our short time together! We talked about raw foods, chemicals versus nature, what does "shelf stable" really mean, blood sugar, metabolism, snacking, working out, and so much more!
