  • First get prepared for the flight. Here is a list of foods you can carry on the flight.
  • 4 Foods to fly with
  • Homemade sandwiches or premade salads are the way to go if you’re looking for a mid-flight meal – And you can include your favorite dressing as long as it’s in a 3.4 oz. or smaller container. Also remember not to use foil to wrap your sandwich, because that just might set off the x-ray and add an unwanted delay to your travel.
  • Veggies such as carrots, celery, and broccoli paired with your choice of dip (hummus, ranch or salsa) are a good and super healthy snack food. Dips are okay as long as they are in a 3.4 oz (or smaller) container.
  • Fresh fruit such as apples, bananas, or grapes is a good way to satisfy that sweet tooth while maintaining even blood sugar levels. This is especially good if like me you like to work while you fly.
  • Healthy crunchy treats such as kale chips, popcorn or nuts are great to snack on during your flight. You can make your own trail mix or if you purchase a bag just make sure it’s not loaded with inflammatory oils or other not so good for you additives. Best nuts for your health, almonds,
