Travel Tip # 2

Pack your own lunch.

Wonderful image of women workers having lunch in their rest room, C&NW Railroad, Clinton, Iowa, 1942 from bayswater97.

Generally nothing you eat on an economy class flight is going to blow your mind culinarily speaking, so pack some small nutritious snacks from home & eat your main meal in your stopover airport or at your final destination. You won't regret it.

As a sidenote to this tip; I found that by not eating the questionable plane dishes & saving my appetite for a main meal in my destination helped lessen jetlag. Mealtime is the best way to get your body into the new timezone.

In my lunchbox, small containers of;
  • almonds
  • dried apricots
  • dried pears
  • crystallised ginger
  • a banana
What's your take on plane food? More to the point, have you ever had a nice plane meal in economy?

Thanks for your post! Some airlines do impose strict conditions for food brought into planes.

Plane food is always disgusting... they make you feel like a child telling you when and what you can eat!

OOh I love these travel food tips... the orange honey almonds sound delicious, as do the dried mangoes.


I *love* plane food. It has cute little portions and it's generally yummy. I know, I'm a freak!
