Binge-watching during the weekends is one of the best ways to spend time with family members. With the availability of a lot of content on television and OTT, you can nonstop watch content and enjoy a good time with your family members.
However, while binge-watching you do need something to chew and eat as a snack. Since you have to sit for long hours while watching the content, the best idea is to opt for healthy snacking instead of eating junk foods like samosas, French fries, and wafers.
Nuts and seeds
Nuts and seeds like almonds, walnuts, flax seeds, and watermelon seeds are enriched with healthy proteins and fats. They are easy to store and a handful of these nuts and seeds can give you a good amount of fiber and other micronutrients. For a better option, choose unsalted seeds and nuts so that you do not consume extra sodium which can be dangerous for your blood pressure levels.
Yogurt and berries
Probiotics and prebiotics are extremely good for your gut health. Low-fat yogurt like Greek Yogurts enriched with different varieties of berries are high in protein. The addition of berries makes it like a healthy dessert treat without adding many calories to your intake. It is a great snack and you can with little effort make such naturally flavoured yogurt at home easily.
Popcorn is a hot favourite of everyone when it comes to binge-watching movies or series at home or even enjoying a movie in the theater. For better health, choose the non-butter, air-popped version. You can buy the popcorn directly from the market or prepare them at home adding your own flavours. This way you are assured of the quality of the ingredients that are being used.
Veggie sticks and hummus
Hummus is full of fiber and protein. It is satiating and fills your stomach very fast. So using it as the dip for vegetable sticks made from cucumber, celery or carrot can be the healthiest option that you can ever prepare. Both this combination of hummus and veggie sticks that are grilled with very less oil provide the much-needed micro and macronutrients to the body without adding those extra unwanted calories.
Fruit slices and coconut water
Slices of fruits like watermelon, musk melon, mangoes, and papayas are good for snacking when your palate requires something sweet but healthy. Instead of aerated sodas and flavoured artificial drinks, having coconut water, or natural drinks like lemon and honey juice can be a healthier option during your binge-watching session.
