Our Airplane Food

By , June 9, 2012

Yay, we’re headed out pretty soon for Hawaii! We like taking our own food, so this is what we’ve got for the 2 hours at the airport plus the 7 1/2 hour flight:

Salads (all homegrown – lettuce, chives, oregano, dill, parsley)


Watermelon, pears, and peaches


Halved lemons to squeeze onto the salads


Homemade concord grape fruit leather


Pepperjack cheese slices

Wasa crackers

Slices of sprouted grain bread

Whole Wheat Gingerbread muffin

Some little sweet treats


I love eating my own food on the plane and it feels good to be taking all this good stuff. Plus we can re-use the containers while we’re travelling too — for picnics or whatever… and then fill them back up with tropical Hawaiian goodness to eat on the plane ride back. (Or with sea shells, as the case may turn out to be…)

    This is so inspiring, I fly out next week for a trip and needed some snack inspiration. What do you do about keeping things cold? Or do you not worry about it too much?

  5. Lindsey says:

    Hi Aja,
    Have fun!
    I double-bag all the cold stuff together in paper bags, but otherwise don’t worry too much about it. They will confiscate any gel packs I take, so, what can ya do! 🙂

    Sweet – I am thinking of throwing some hard boiled eggs into the mix too! 🙂

    Aja, hardboiled eggs, what a great idea! YUM! Have a great trip~

    did you have to put the food through the gamma ray scanner?

  9. Lindsey says:

    Hi Vicky,
    We avoid that machine at all costs! Our food went through the normal x-ray conveyor belt thing that carryon luggage goes through. We, ourselves, “opt out” of the gamma ray scanner and have them hand-pat us down. I like this option way better!
