Flying with food

Recommended Posts

I'm flying into Orlando this morning and am staying Wed-Sat at the Embassy Suites INSIDE the airport for a conference. No sunlight for 4 days but worse than that the choices are airport food court food or ridiculously expensive hotel food (I'm talking a $35 breakfast buffet that you're only eating bacon and eggs from. How many days would it take to eat $35 worth of (factory raised-ew) bacon and eggs!?!)

In case you're wondering, I had no problem getting the following on the plane:

1. Canned coconut milk

2. Oranges

3. Vacuum sealed meals

4. Aidells sausages

Pretty stoked! :-)

A friend showed me these. They are kind of expensive but after this trip I may splurge and grab one! (Instead of protein powders we can put in BCAA's - haha. Except the one without sucralose tastes like powdered earwax)

I have one of those!! I pack it for my husband almost every day. It's totally worth the $

It's my "personal item" - instead of a purse I'm carrying an insulated Trader Joe's bag. What a dork am I? (It's ok, I've come to grips with it.)

I believe (at least on american) you are allowed 'a bag of food to be consumed on the flight' in addition to your personal item and carryon.

im a flight attendant too and depending on what ports i fly in and out of i've worked out what i can get through security... and if I've worked it out then i imagine others have too which worries me - I'm not sure everyone wants to sneak something as harmless as coconut milk on board!

I'm flying on a 3-day biz trip in the middle of my planned whole 30. For lunch I usually make up a batch of mason jar salads. Do you think I could get these on a plane if I have the dressing in a separate container in with my toiletry liquids? Or do you think I'd do better with single ingredients thinks like chicken, hardboiled eggs, avocados?

Not as stylish maybe but they make lots of insulated lunch boxes; one example: http://amzn.to/2CTEBAN
