Greetings from 30,000 ft! In-flight wifi will make anyone productive. This is my first experience on a cross country flight trying to stay 100% raw so I thought I would share with you what I’ve been munching on throughout the ride.
For me variety is key. If I get bored with what I brought I’m much more likely to break down and buy some in flight snack. So I pack a lot of food. You might not need to bring as much. I had a very early flight so I made a batch of green juice in the morning (I added lots of cilantro and pineapple) then I filled one metal water bottle with juice and froze it overnight, the other half I put in the fridge to drink in the morning as I was getting ready.
The reason I freeze a bottle of green juice is so that I can put it in my checked luggage to drink when I land. you never know how long it will be before you can make it to a juice bar.
I packed two sandwich bags of dry things. First some raw trail mix, and the other bag filled with the sprouted buckwheat granola I picked up at Prana over the weekend. Then I packed two small plastic containers (very small, they hold about 4 oz). The first one I packed with some leftover no-bean hummus that was still in my fridge and the second one got filled with guacamole (I just made a quick batch before we left this morning). I also packed a bag of carrot sticks for dipping and some honeydew melon in case I wanted something sweet.
Based on past experiences I find that being prepared works out best for me. This is far better than any other recent flight I’ve been on and I was enjoying great fresh food the whole time.
