Preparing to travel isn’t always as much fun as we’d like. You have to worry about everything from planning the trip to packing for the adventure properly. What’s more, if you’re in a hurry and you’re worried about missing your flight, you might end up forgoing a decent meal, meaning you’ll have to grab a snack to compensate.
Picking snacks for a long-haul flight can be a bit challenging too. To get the best results, you have to make sure that the snack isn’t only delicious, but is also healthy and meets all set TSA standards.
Don’t know how to get started here? Not to worry!
We’ve done the leg work for you and come up with a few snacks you can pack for your travel that aren’t only TSA-approved but are also nutritious, filling, and won’t destroy your precious bag!
Here we go!
Fresh Mandarins (California-Grown)
These fruits are packed with natural energy, rich in vitamin C, completely seedless, and don’t take any real effort to peel perfectly. They’re the ideal snacks to grab on the go for any long flight!
If you like your snacks a little salty, we recommend packing olives for your next long-distance flight. Delicious and rewarding to eat solo or contained in a small salad, olives are arguably one of the healthiest flight foods you can eat.
Packaged, these are an attractive option due to many reasons, foremost of which is that since they’re already peeled, you don’t have to go through the stress of doing that yourself. Add to that the fact that they’re one of the richest sources of organic protein and you see why hard-boiled eggs are such a popular option.
Muffins and Croissants
Muffins are an excellent snack for you on any long-haul flight. However, we have to stress that the healthy choice of muffins for you are the grain-free, gluten-free variety. So, be sure to keep an eye out for those specifically.
Small, easy-to-carry, healthy, and absolutely delicious, what’s not to love about grapes? To make these even more enjoyable for your flight, pop them in the freezer before your flight and when you’re ready to head out, transfer them into a reusable on-the-go bag to ensure they stay frozen a bit longer. And when you’re ready, a nice, crunchy snack is waiting for you on your flight!
Dates and Dried Fruits
If you have a sweet tooth and still want to eat healthy on your long flight, why not pack dates and some dried fruits? You not only get your sugar dose but also some protein and fats as well. Dried fruits like mangoes are some of the best alternatives to sweets too!
Your trip starts better when you have good foods to tide you through your flight! So, which snack do you prefer?
