There are three certainties in life: death, taxes, and bad airline food. With all the advances in the
travel industry it seems the food that is served on airplanes has remained consistently
disappointing. The smart traveler knows better than to depend on airline food if they are to be
satisfied during their flight. With that in mind, we have compiled a short list of the Best Travel
Snacks For Your Next Flight.
Light, nutritious and FDA approved, you can’t go wrong with nuts as a snack. The protein and
healthy fats will keep you from starving on your flight, and there are many options to choose
Hummus and chips
I don’t know about you, but I can eat hummus and chips all day, every day, so obviously this
selection is very high on my personal list. If you can’t package a nice hummus and chips meal
yourself at home, you can usually find it available at any airport.
Another great option in the clutch, especially if you need to pack protein, is an energy bar or
protein bar. This convenient option fits right in your pocket and provides much needed
satisfaction without making you too full.
Peanut Butter & Whatever!
The great thing about peanut butter is it goes with almost anything. True story: I once had a
peanut butter, bacon & banana sandwich and guess what... it was delicious. Pack some peanut
butter (or your favorite nut butter) along with crackers, fruits, vegetables, bread, or anything else
that serves as a worthwhile vehicle.
Finally, the old school snack option for traveling that would make any mother proud: the
sandwich. Whether it’s peanut butter & jelly, tuna, or a classic ham & cheese, you can never go
wrong with a sandwich on a flight - just make sure it doesn’t contain anything that requires
refrigeration - especially on a long trip.
