This is one of the most requested questions I get – “ What food do you bring with you when you fly?” As a frequent traveler, I am happy to say that I have become a pro at packing my own food for the plane. Whether you are on a short or long, economy or business flight, chances are the food will not be that tasty. I have tried the food on many airlines and have been disappointed, not only by the taste of the food, but by the quality too. Most meals provided by the airlines are packed with artificial ingredients, chemicals and too much sodium which can easily make you feel bloated, gassy and uncomfortable. So, to avoid feeling crappy when you get off a plane, I have resorted to packing my own food. Eating healthfully is just one of many things I do to maintain my glow while traveling.
My Go To Recipes When I Fly
I like to make these recipes and then portion them into small portable containers to pack in my purse or carry on for the flight.
Iceberg Salad With Grilled Chicken
Mexican Quinoa Salad
Cauliflower Rice With Salmon & Mango Salsa
GG Sandwiches – I love topping mine with kite hill cream cheese, smoked salmon, cucumber and lemon or with PB2 chocolate and sliced strawberries.
Spinach & Feta Quinoa Quiche
Mini Pizzas On Ezekiel English Muffins

Other Snack Ideas
On shorter flights, I usually just pack small snacks like:
Baby Carrots & Olives
Sliced Bell Peppers
Sliced Cucumbers & Hummus
Apple & Justin’s Almond Butter (individual packs)
Raw Rev Vegan Bars
Pistachios (any nuts are fine, but pistachios the lowest in fat and calories)
