18 sweet and savory snack ideas to add to your carry-on bag.
Eating healthy while traveling is no easy task. If you’ve ever found yourself at an airport ordering a burger for breakfast when a cup of oatmeal is what you would normally have, you know what we mean.
And once you board the plane, it gets even more challenging. First of all, airlines (especially low-cost ones) overcharge you for pretty much every item on the food and drinks menu. And even if you don’t mind paying up for a sandwich, you can never be sure how or when it was made.
Thanks to the Internet, though, there’s a very easy (and much cheaper) solution to this problem — buy your favorite healthy snacks in bulk and grab a couple of packs from your kitchen cabinet on your way out to the airport.
Even food that is considered liquid, such as hummus or another veggie dip, is available in TSA-friendly portions (smaller than 3.4 ounces) so you can enjoy it with a pack of pita chips on board.
And if you have a sweet tooth, grab a chocolate-covered protein bar or a pack of raw coconut macaroons and, we promise, you won’t so much as glance at an airline menu ever again.
Here are 20 healthy and delicious snacks that are perfect for your next long flight.
