Air travel means airports. Airports mean jacked up prices of all your unhealthy food options and unexpected/uncontrollable delays. Currently, I’m sitting in the airplane on the run way with an hour and half delayed flight, we had breakfast before we boarded (thankfully) but my stomach is already growling. How miserable would it be if I came unprepared?
I’m loaded up with SNACKS ON SNACKS ON SNACKS in my purse. Party time boohyaaaa*
It’s so easy to forget to add snacks to your packing list when you already have two suitcases packed full of sandals and bikini’s for your beach vaca.
Anywhere I travel, whether it be business. pleasure or volunteer I make sure to stock up on healthy food options to munch on during flights and layovers.
The key is to bring items that don’t need to be refrigerated (obviously) and are convenient to pack in your carry on bag.
You can’t bring any form of liquid through security so I pack a reusable empty water bottle with my carry on and fill it up when I get to my gate. Drinking enough water before and during a flight is important to maintain blood circulation and oxygen as you will be sitting and at high altitude for a long duration of time.
(You can bring any form of food onto a flight within the US. Food leaving exotic countries may be confiscated)
Did you make some yummy protein bites or homemade granola? Packed it up and throw it in your purse! Did you stop at the local bakery and grab some goods for your trip home? Bring it! You are welcome to bring food onto your flight as long as items don’t contain more than 3oz of liquid.
To play it safe, I refrain from opening many of my store bought items until I’m through security.
The Gluten Free Bears Peanut Butter Bars and coconut bites are delish. Tastes like a treat but has all natural gluten free ingredients, no soy or dairy, vegan and non GMO. Affordable too! This item is 210 calories per bar, has 10g total fat, 13 g sugar, 12 grams protein
