Other Healthy Airplane Snacks & Travel Tips
Pack Food For The Whole Day
Better safe than sorry. Flight delays, airports with terrible food options, last-minute plans… it happens. Being overprepared is sooo much better than being sad and hungry!
No TSA Pre, Clear, Or Global Entry?
Keep all food stashed at the top of your bag so you can easily get to it and take it out if needed at security. If traveling abroad, check if there are food restrictions for airport security.
Don’t Forget To Bring…
Utensils to eat with, wet wipes or napkins, and reusable water bottles.
Stay At Airbnb’s OR Hotels With A Kitchen/Mini-Fridge
Healthy airplane snacks don’t have to stop at the airport. Most hotels will have a microwave in the breakfast area. Staying at a place where you can cook during your trip is a great way to save $$$ and stay healthy (:
Go Grocery Shopping When You Land
Bonus points if you book your stay near a grocery store. Consider grabbing extra jerky, protein bars, etc, to keep stashed in your bag. This tip reallyyy helps me whenever I’m staying with family/loved ones. Even if I have to pay for an Uber/Lyft to get there, it helps avoid so much stress and headache as I’m able to stock up on food I actually want to eat, and that align with my goals and how I want to feel.
Said differently: I’m GF/DF and need foods that won’t kill me – HAHA!
Usually, I’ll just send a text before my trip that looks something like this:
“I’m so excited to see you ___! When we get in town, I’d love to go to the grocery store to grab food and snacks for the week. Would you mind giving me a ride there? Totally ok if I need to grab an Uber. Just let me know!”
I hope these healthy airplane snacks make your food planning 10x easier!
