Who doesn’t love a relaxing evening of binging on their favourite shows while chomping on some tasty snacks! But while you catch up on those shows, make sure those extra calories don’t catch up to you! A study conducted by Harvard Health in 2013 claims that distracted eating may add to weight gain. The study found that multitasking while consuming food can slow down the food savoring process and causing one to lose track of their food intake. But fear not! You do not have to give up on snacking while watching TV. Pooja Bhargava certified Health Coach and Fitness Trainer has put together a list of healthy snack options you can chomp on guilt-free while binge-watching your favourite shows!
A bowl of fruit & nuts
Nuts are loaded with minerals and omega 3 fatty acids which promote hair growth and reduce one’s risk of heart disease. Fruits, on the other hand, are low in calories, sugar and high in minerals and vitamins! Combine these two foods together for a healthy and wholesome snack.
Banana & Almond smoothie
Banana and almonds are two healthy foods that complement each other perfectly! Loaded with essential nutrients and minerals this smoothie will help keep you full for longer and help you increase your daily protein intake!
Hummus & Veggies sticks
Hummus is a tasty and low-fat snack, which is especially good for vegetarians as it high in protein. Club it with some vegetable sticks or on top of whole wheat toasted bread to enjoy a wholesome snack.
Loaded with sprouts and veggies, this bhel will surely help fill you up and the best part about it is that you can enjoy it guilt-free anytime you like!

Yogurt Fruit Bowl
Yogurt is loaded with nutrients & protein that help boost the immune system & fight off osteoporosis. This festive season skip the sugary desserts & opt for some sugar-free desserts, such as this low-fat yogurt fruit bowl!
Air-fried foods are certainly a healthier option compared to fried foods. Air fryers use significantly less oil than deep fryers and produce foods with lower fat content, calorie content and oil usage as compared to other fried foods.
Now that you have a healthy variety of snacks to choose from, we wish you a happy bingeing!
