Don’t forget the snacks
You managed to make it to the airport on time! Phew, that was close. But now you hear a noise and feel something in your stomach. You’re hungry? Don’t waste time in line or at a vending machine. Be smart and pre-pack some snacks. Here are my favorite travel snacks!
Peanut Butter is my absolute favorite! Peanut butter goes well with fruit, veg, and dry snacks like crackers and pretzels and is filling. Jig Reminder If you are flying, the TSA website states that you can carry on less than or equal to 3.4oz/100 ml of liquid or gel-like foods.
Granola bars. A super easy snack you can toss in your carry-on or personal item. A good mix for me is sweet and salty yummy! Most granola bars are high in fiber, which can hold you over between meals. Tip healthy granola bars tend to have very few ingredients.
Dried Fruit. Mangos, bananas or apple chips, apricots, raisins, and more are great travel snacks. Dried fruit is prepackaged, leaves no crumbs, has health benefits, and can help satisfy your sweet tooth.
Fruit and Veggies. Celery and carrot sticks with some hummus dip are a great, easy snack for staying healthy while flying. Just make sure your hummus is less than 3oz to stay TSA-compliant.
Dried Fruit. Some dried fruit is an easy, healthy snack for the plane. Dried mango slices, apple chips, raisins, etc., can help satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you satisfied on the plane.
Crackers. Graham, saltine, animal, Pb, or even whole wheat crackers can be satisfying to a hungry tummy. It’s not a meal, but it can hold you until you receive one.
Fruit Apple slices, a banana, or grapes are easy to pack fruit that requires minimal effort to consume
Veggies. Carrots and celery and sticks with or without hummus are great healthy snacks. Be sure your hummus or dip of choice is less than or equal to 3.4oz/100 ml.
According to TSA, less than 100 ml/3.4oz liquids are allowed through the airport security checkpoint. Remember that every airport is different, and rules and regulations may differ. However, you can bring tea bags, coffee, or hot cocoa, ask a steward for a cup of hot water, and enjoy your hot beverage.
