We plan our outfits and activities, so why not add travel snacks to the list? Summer trips can put you in the precarious situation of trying to manage both your health and your wallet. Not to mention that fact that a bag of complimentary peanuts does not always keep your appetite in check when you’re flying 35,000 feet in the air.
If you want to avoid high prices and mind your health, just remember these carry-on snacks that will fight off hunger pains while you fly to your destination?
While the treats you pack need to adhere to TSA guidelines, you can keep it interesting by mixing textures and flavors. Swap cellophane-wrapped potato chips for homemade carrot, parsnip, or kale chips. Make healthy trail mixes with whole grains, almonds, and dried fruit. Sweeten bars with honey or keep it savory with a mix of spices.
For some snack-time inspiration, check out these 11 recipes that will make flying — whether for vacation or work — that much more enjoyable.
