Tasty Bites to Complement Your Hobbies: 3 Delicious Options

Food can be so much more than just fuel for our bodies, it can be the perfect way to improve our moods and elevate any experience. Especially when it comes to our hobbies, for instance, who doesn’t love snacking while watching a movie? Well, if you’re looking for some delicious meals to match your favorite hobbies – you’ve come to the right place.

Gambling: A Healthy Wrap

There’s a common trope with gamers, where they’ll either forget to eat while playing or overindulge heavily on snacks like crisps. Well, we’re here to try and change that for the better, as having a complete meal is a must when it comes to sustaining yourself. 

For instance, imagine you’re playing online pokies in Australia, which are popular virtual casino games, akin to slot machines. You’re enjoying yourself, playing a 3-reel such as Coins of Ra or a 5-reel slot game like Fury of Zeus, and suddenly you feel (and hear) your stomach rumbling. This will be even more likely if you’re playing a slot themed around enticing food imagery like the game Fruit Fortune.

Feeling hungry or peckish can seriously distract you from the fun and excitement you’re having while playing these immersive pokie games. Plus, online casinos have worked extremely hard to make the graphics, sounds, and overall immersion levels as high as possible, so you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you can’t properly focus on appreciating the superb visuals, animations, and jingles.

Regardless of which slot specifically you are playing, be it one of the ones we mentioned or a completely different one – food would just be the supreme accompaniment. However, you need to think of meals that will be comfortable to enjoy regardless of the device you’re using to play. Be it a phone, a tablet, or a PC, you can’t appreciate playing slots as fully with a messy meal.

For this hobby, we’d recommend making a loaded-with-goodness wrap. Start this off with a tortilla wrap, a saucy base such as a Caesar salad dressing, spinach, or another green, a healthy fat source such as cheese or avocado, then a protein of your choice. This is a simple albeit healthy and delicious meal, that will cover all your bases – just make sure not to skimp out on any toppings as it should fuel you for the rest of your gaming session.

Reading: Delicious Finger Foods

Now, for the book lovers out there, we certainly hope you’re also foodies. Getting lost in the pages of your favorite novel can be amazing, however, pairing this with a cozy meal will just add a healthy dose of comfort to the entire experience. 

Picture this, you’re curled up and cozy with a book in one hand, and a delightful meal in the other. Truly, if that is not what dreams are made of we don’t know what is.

You might be worried about getting your fingers dirty and messing up your e-reader or book. Fret not, as we have found two perfect options that will appease that. At the very least, they are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face as you happily munch away and continue reading.   

Let’s start this with a simple option – a feast of finger foods, served on a platter that can easily be sat next to you on the couch or a table. Some great mess-free options would be cubed cheese, olives, deviled eggs, crispy tofu with spicy tomato chutney, and vegetable crudites paired with homemade hummus. You can easily use toothpicks or a fork to make this experience even neater.

Alternatively, why not try a homemade calzone? By making your own dough with Greek yogurt or cottage cheese and adding a healthy portion of veggies such as broccoli and kale and protein in the form of lean cuts of meat or tofu, you can easily turn it into an elevated and healthy option. Moreover, it will be far less messy than a pizza where the sauce can get all over your fingers.

Watching Movies: Homemade Pizza, Anyone?

Now, the most epic of times to enjoy a mouth-watering meal – movie night. Nothing beats this combination, and it’s even better when you share the experience with a loved one next to you. And as delightful as butter popcorn can be, perhaps it’s time to try out something new.

For instance, why not make yourself a decadent grilled cheese? Add butter or mayo on one side of each slice you’ll be cooking, add a mixture of mature cheddar and mozzarella, then top it all off with seasoned caramelized onions. Before putting this already indulgent mix on the pan, sprinkle some parmesan on the pan which will stick to the bread and create an even crispier and flavorful exterior.

Another great option would be to make a pizza at home, it’s up to you if you want to make your own dough or go for a store-bought one. We’d certainly recommend going for a classic tomato base topped with mozzarella, but add whichever toppings your little heart desires. Then once it’s out of the oven, add some freshly grated parmesan, a few dollops of pesto, and some basil leaves to take it to the next level.

And that’s a wrap on all of our delicious options! All that is left,is to go to your kitchen and try them out. We hope that at the very least we have inspired you to take the time to think of your next meal so you can enhance the time spent enjoying your pastimes.
