5 Easy Snacks To Binge On While Watching Your Favorite Movie
There are weekends where you are busy with all sorts of activities and social gatherings, and then there are weekends where all you do is put on your most comfy clothes and catch up on your favorite movies and shows. Sometimes you are so engrossed that you end up spending 8 to 10 hours straight watching it. Yeah! We have all been there.
And as much as we enjoy non-stop viewing the latest movies and shows, no binge-watching secession is complete without delicious, quick snacks. When it comes to snacks, everyone has different preferences: Salty, sweet, sour, or spicy. To help you choose an easy snack for your next binge-watching session, we have rounded up the five best snacks to binge eat while watching your favorite movie or show.
Healthy and tasty, corn-based food items are popular movie snacks. Corn is one of the most versatile grains that can be made in many different ways depending on the dish. We all enjoy the classic boiled corn and butter combination. Want to spice it up? Add some chaat masala and lime juice and your corn masala are ready. Easy to make and tastes great. If you are in the mood for a sumptuous corn-based snack, try corn chaat. Mix some fresh boiled corn, tomato pieces, green chilies, pomegranates, and a hint of coriander chutney, and your yummy movie marathon snack is ready.
Bread is readily available at home, and a whole lot of dishes can be made with it. A sandwich is a quick to make, healthy snack that can be eaten any time of the day. Club sandwich requires little preparation and can be made with a variety of ingredients. Try vegan club sandwich using almond butter and vegetables such as cucumber, tomatoes, and lettuce. If you prefer your sandwich with meat, add roasted chicken and boiled eggs to it. And you can never go wrong with good old fashioned comfort food: grilled cheese sandwich. With so many different sauces and spreads available in the market, you can make all kinds of sandwiches.
While most of us prefer to eat something while watching our favorite movie or show, some like their snack in a drink form, for those who prefer to drink their snacks rather than eat them, smoothies are a perfect choice. Smoothies can be made using fruits, vegetables, nuts, and different kinds of milk and yogurts. You can opt for healthy fruit-based smoothies such as banana and almond or date and yogurt smoothies. If you have a sweet tooth, add a spoonful of Nutella to it. If you want your smoothie to have some texture, add peanut butter to it. For those who are vegan, make your smoothie with almond or soy milk. With various options to choose from, you can add a drinking snack to your next binge-watching session.
Be it parties, weddings, at a club, or even at home, people love snacking on peanuts, and they have been a staple Indian snack for a long time. Because of its versatility, a lot of dishes are made using it. One of my favorite snacks is peanut bhel. Easy to make, healthy and delicious, mix roasted peanuts (you can use masala peanuts), onions, tomatoes, cucumber, and fresh coriander leaves. Add some chaat masala, lemon juice and sprinkle thin sev on top of it and your movie snack is ready.
When it comes to snack food, chips top the list. At some time or the other, we all have relished a packet of our favorite chips while watching a movie or show. From classic potato and banana to the healthy kale, beetroot, and zucchini ones, there is a wide variety of chips to choose from, depending on your mood. You can have the chips as it is or pair it with a dip. Depending on your mood, pick a packet of chips of your choice and enjoy it while you watch the latest flick.
