Late meals can also be helpful.Source
With OOT platforms shaping our lifestyle, our nights have become longer and dinner has shifted to after-midnight meals. Even though we know that eating late at night is not good for our health, the lure of all these exciting shows and movies available with just one click is clouding our minds. Our bodily systems are pre-wired for light digestion throughout the day, which slows down as the day draws to a close. Snacking late at night can lead to indigestion, insomnia, and even weight gain. But now, if it’s too late to change your newly acquired habits, perhaps you could replace junk food with smaller, healthier meals that won’t upset your digestive system too much.
So, for all the OTT lovers out there, we have listed some quick, easy-to-make and healthy meal options that can also satisfy your nighttime cravings.
Here are 7 quick and healthy recipes for a late dinner.
1. Paneer sandwich – our recommendation
Swap white bread for black bread, spread slices with green chutney, top with paneer slices, sprinkle with salt and black pepper, close sandwich, rub some melted butter on top and grill. You can even skip ghee and toast altogether and eat it as is.
2. Bezan Chilla
This is another quick dish that can be prepared in just 5 minutes. Make a paste by mixing besan with water, salt, ajwain, red chili powder, green chili, turmeric powder and a pinch of hinga. Pour into a greased dish and fry on both sides.
