In our last blog post, we talked about how to fly as a vegan…
We gave you some tips about how to avoid going hungry during the process.
One way to make sure you will always have something to eat is by preparing snacks that you can bring with you on the plane. First of all, make sure that is food that will pass the security checkpoint. Then, prepare snacks that will keep you satisfied for large periods of time. Slow energy release foods are great for that purpose. Quinoa, grains, nuts, nut butter, non-starchy veggies, and fruits are perfect.
Superfoods will make great ingredients for your snacks because not only by being nutrient-dense you will feel more energized but also some superfoods will help you to keep focused and alert. Examples of superfoods that can be used for savory snacks are algae, flax seeds, maca, and seaweed.
Try to avoid starchy foods as they have a tendency of slowing us down both physically and mentally. Avoid preparing snacks with sauces as they can both get messy on the plane and can get confiscated at the security checkpoint.
Remember that portability is a convenient component if you want to prepare foods to have on the go so try to make your snacks as bite-size.
In order to keep your waste at a minimum, try the following:
- Pack your food in reusable containers avoiding plastic bags.
- Pack a hand cloth that is easy to wash so you don’t have to use napkins.
- Pack an empty water bottle that you can refill anywhere that has drinking water
We have picked up some savory recipes from talented authors and chefs so you can start replenishing your body by addressing those cravings for salty and savory foods.
