Most of you reading this article would be thinking, “Are we even allowed to bring snacks on a plane?”. Well, of course you are. You may not be able to carry your favorite soda, or coconut water past the security check, but a number of solid foods are a fair game to play. Things like chips, sandwiches, protein bars, salads, fruits, etc., are some of the many things that can accompany you while on board.
So here is a list of the best airplane snacks that can easily be carried on a plane. This article enlists snack options for varied dietary needs and preferences.
Raw and thoroughly washed veggies are equally good as fruits. Again, rich in nutrition, they are a great snack in both raw and prepared form.
Some vegetables are more portable than others. Carrots and celery are a great option to pack as a flight snack. Besides, cauliflower florets, cucumber, baby broccoli are great options too, if eaten with a pinch of salt over them.
Another of my personal favorites. Nuts are high-protein food that serve as a great snack while traveling. You can simply pack them raw, or do some experimentation with your cooking skills. Make caramel or chocolate almonds, salted cashew nuts, mixed nuts salad or such other yummy alternates.
These baked bars are a perfect companion for your voyage. They are crispy, they are sweet, and they work great with your digestion process. Prepared with oats, nuts, honey and other sweeteners like brown sugar, you can easily prepare them at home or buy the ready to use version fro any nearby store.
Another favorite among snackers, Pretzels are the best low fat snack that are high in iron, folate, zinc and potassium. They are crunchy, highly portable, and won’t worry your stomach if you have too many of them. You can have them bare, or try some low fat cheese to add more taste and less calories. You can even try them with fruits like apple or pear to add more fiber. If not so much of a calorie-carer, carry hummus for the best combination. Just make sure you carry them in a solid container so they don’t get smashed in your luggage.
Thick cakes don’t expire quickly, and work better than the English muffins. I personally like them because they hardly require any add-on. Although you can layer them with thick cheese or almond butter if you want a varied taste.
