Even our Naked Ancestors loved Nuts!

Even cavemen knew that nuts are great for you. Since shopping wasn’t an option, their diets were mostly made up of things for which they could forage. Berries, nuts, roots, fruits and meats came by easily. Nuts have packed withealthy fats that helped keep these hunter-gatherers warm. Nuts were also easy to stash away during the cold months. Ask Scrat, the acorn-obsessed sabre-toothed squirrel from 20th Century Fox’s “Ice Age”.ScratToday, eating habits of cavemen are making a huge comeback worldwide, with lots of folks going gaga over the Paleo diet. The Paleo diet shuns carbohydrates like the plague.

However, at superbites, we’ve been big cheerleaders of balanced eating as opposed to diets. So keep the proportions sane, the nutrients handy and stay healthy!


What do we get from Nuts? Nuts maketh the super-heroes!

But was there any wisdom to our caveman ancestors’ nut eating habits? The answer is a resounding YES! 

Nuts are loaded with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, and omega fatty acids. These form the building blocks of good brain health. Lots of studies have shown direct links between nut consumption and positive brain development. This points at probable origin of every Indian mothers favourite adage, ‘beta doodh ke saath badaam zaroor khaana’ 

Nuts are full of iron, selenium, zinc and magnesium. They’re also filled with Vitamins A, D, B and K. All in all, they are like all natural nutritional supplement capsules. Nuts are also a significant source of proteins. So vegetarians who are paranoid about getting insufficient protein from their diet, fear not! A handful of nuts is exactly the kind of fuel you need before a workout!

So pick up a pack of superbites from our selection: salted cashews, almonds, pistachios or even mixed nuts, and get tanked up! All available at our awesome superbites nut webstore. 



nuts - simply awesome for you!
