Flying Over the Holidays? Bring Your Meals With You!
I flew out to Telluride, CO last Saturday. My family has a home out there and we always spend Christmas up here. I left my house at 6am and wasn't getting in Telluride until almost 1pm and I knew I wouldn't find anything healthy in the airport so I packed breakfast, lunch and a snack to tide me over until I got there.
I always fly with my meals. You can even pack a cooler with ice packs if you so desire but I generally pack too much other stuff so I just throw my food in my purse.
I chugged an organic veggie juice I had picked up the night before on my way to the airport. (it was 6am- I forgot to take a pic, sorry!) I got one of my favorites from Juiceland- The Fountain (carrot, ginger, beet, kale, spinach, parsley, celery, added cucumber & turmeric) I also had a tall soy cappuccino from Starbucks. I generally avoid soy but this was a very special occasion!
I finally had my breakfast around 8:30 after I boarded my plane. The veggie juice and coffee kept me good until then. I had half of this Vigilant Eats Superfood cereal (it's the best oatmeal I've ever had! Gluten free, low in sugar-uses coconut sugar- and it works with cold water so no need to find hot water!) I also had a container of cut up grapefruit from Whole Foods.
