Food prep! Oh boy. How easy is it to grab something unhealthy when you’re on the go? When I’m travelling, I always get so tempted to eat something from the many restaurants/cafes you find in an airport. Because well, all I have to do is wait, right?
Therefore I always make sure to food prep in advance for longer journeys. Because my flight for this particular food-prep is only one and a half hour long I’ll be leaving with salty almonds and a lovely mix of berries. But did you know that you can actually travel with a lot of food items? Carrot/cucumber/celery sticks, peanut butter (counts as liquid though) fruit, even stuff like salads and sandwiches. Of course, always check with the regulations but as me travelling from UK-Denmark I’m all good to go with my little healthy snacks.
P.s Please consider your fellow passengers, so don’t bring anything that smells too much XD
