Staying in shape is hard work: Counting calories, taking vitamin supplements and mixing protein shakes can be time-consuming, which is why many consumers turn to fitness bars to stay on a healthy track.
While energy bars might promise performance, stamina and weight loss, a look at their nutritional facts reveals high calorie counts, tons of sugar and even more sodium. A single Clif bar, for example, has 240 calories and contains 140mg of sodium and 22g of sugar. A Power Bar has 230 calories, 95mg of sodium and 18 grams of sugar.
These fitness “solutions” also contain so many unpronounceable ingredients that it’s no wonder the caveman inside us all is craving a simpler time when food was recognizable and made from whole ingredients that the body can easily digest.
A new company has created Caveman Cookies, which are rich and satisfying while still embracing the back-to-basics principles of our Paleolithic ancestors. These gluten-free snacks contain nuts, berries, honey and weigh in at just 65–75 calories, 0g of sodium and 10g of sugar. Unlike the highly processed “healthy” snacks we’re familiar with, Caveman Cookies contain no refined sugars, trans fats, salt, high-glycemic carbohydrates or ingredients you can’t pronounce. Just the way a caveman would want it.
