So I've recently blogged about travelling on GAPS but I thought I'd dedicate a post to plane food - this was a quagmire for me, because I had two five hour flights over the dinner hour, and as yet have not found a good resource on GAPS food for a plane. So here goes:
On the flight to my destination:
This is the easy part, because in theory you're food shopping in your home town and are thus perhaps more aware of where amenable food can be bought.
Meal - Dry Chicken Salad
Grilled chicken breast, patted dry (sadly...all that fat gone) and grated parmesan over a dry premade salad - green mix, cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes, carrot matchsticks...you get the idea. I picked up the salad at my local grocery store. I was a bit nervous going through security with this, but I had no problem.
Snack - Cranberries and pumpkin seeds
Filling, sweet and nourishing. Also, pumpkin seeds contain tryptophan, which, for me, is great on an evening flight. Cranberries are purported to fight infection ...can't hurt right?
On the flight home from my destination
Meal - Salmon-do salad from a local restaurant
Salmon, greens, spring onions. Hold the dressing and the rice.
Local organic chocolate made with date sugar, coconut almond bar made with rice syrup (bad, I know), and a few complimentary apples from my hotel.
