Ahhh airplane food! Can it get any worse? You know it can. That’s why I always recommend you bring food on an airplane or suffer the consequences. I’ve been flying quite a bit lately, so I’ve become a master of packing healthy snacks that travel well. Here’s a look at what I throw in my carry on bag.
First off, I always pick up a smoothy before I board my flight. My favourite is Jugo Juice’s Raspberry Rush. It weights in at 259 calories, 4.8 grams of protein and 6.1 grams of fibre. They say it’s the equivalent of five servings of fruit and veg (which I don’t totally buy), but at least it makes me feel somewhat healthy before starting any journey.
In addition to the smoothy I bring these along:
- Some kind of protein bar
- Cut up carrots, red peppers, orange and cucumber slices
- A few of Gwyneth’s muffins
But the most fabulous snack for any journey, is this Go Picnic ready to eat meal I found at the Phoenix airport, comprised of crackers, humus, nuts, dried fruit and chocolate – all gluten-free. You even get a bonus sudoku puzzle inside the box!
Do you take food with you on the airplane? What are your favourite go-to snacks?
