    Not much to add to already great suggestions. I sometimes whip up a batch of Marks coconut bars to stash in the briefcase, they work. Also, if in Boston Logan Airport, Legal Seafood rocks, very primal!

      good call on the snacks

      just skimmed this, but good call on the snacks--make sure that your snacks are customs inspections okay, though!

      i know i had a little trouble with even "canned tuna" going across a border where i was having language trouble explaining that i wasn't bringing live fish.

        Eating the skin...

        Years ago I was stranded for most of a long winter night in a small airport in rural Wisconsin. Nothing to eat, not even from a vending machine. I could tell I was going out of my mind with hunger when a fellow passenger's buttery-soft calfskin jacket and Coach leather bag started looking quite good to me. I refrained from indulging in the end...after all, I wasn't Primal back then!

        I do think my drooling may have freaked her out a tiny bit, though...

          Houston - IAH - United Terminal (not sure of the actual nomenclature, I was on United)
          There is a place called "Real Food" and it's sorta real'ish. They still have pasta and bread, but I ordered a half baked chicken with 2 sides of vegetables. They have other things as well but I was in a rush and didn't wander around looking at it.

            I fly Southwest all the time and most of their terminals have recently launched a chain called Vino Volo, where you can get nut/cheese plates and some really tasty salads without goofy stuff like fried potato, etc. They are actually a wine-tasting bar, making it my new favorite place at the airport

              This isn't a plug for the McDonald's, but I worked there for several years while in college. You can get just a meat patty in any of their meats, last I knew for a buck. (sometimes call it a dog patty-for the people who go through drive through with their dogs) You can also ask for a burger atkins style, which is with all the fixings minus the bun usually on a lettuce leaf. As a diabetic the sauces and dressings are pretty hopeless. I've also been known to eat a grilled chicken patty on a side salad which is just lettuce and tomato. I wouldn't recommend Burger king eggs(they were across the street and their employees came to McD's to eat), I was told they come premade from the freezer and get nuked.

                san francisco one of the terminals has a farmer's market in it!
                and PDX has salmon jerky in just about every "made in Oregon" gift shop.
                in Atlanta there are some "cajun grills" that in the morning serve breakfast dishes like fried eggs and bacon.
                if you're in santiago, they've got some really great "bar and grills" in them, forgot the name, but it includes a "meat on a stick" area and a nice salad bar-- provided you're there at lunch hour.

                  That sounds amazing! I will be travelling AMS-JFK-TPA-DFW-PDX-AMS in a week's time and was actually wondering about what to bring on the flights now that I have switched to primal a few months ago.
                  I will definitely be stocking up on salmon jerky for the returnflight and will keep my eyes open for tips to share when I come across them at these airports.

                    ATL has some Boars Head kiosks that have premade grilled chicken salads with the croutons and cheese in separate, small containers so they can be thrown away. The chicken meat is pretty sad but edible. I think the dressings are all soy oil based.

                    IAD has Potbelly - great cobb salad with bacon! And chipotle - salad, double the meat if hungry, add guac.

                      I take my own stuff when I can - Canned salmon put in a plastic bowl, veggies and nuts, etc.

                      If you're in Las Vegas (LAS), go to Blue Burrito for a breakfast burrito minus the tortilla. Recently had their eggs, cheese and carnitas in a bowl. Delicious!

                        paleo airport foods?

                        JFK has a buffalo wild wings (supposed fries with lard or some other animal fat) in one terminal (2 I believe?) and chili's in another.

                        Austin bergstrom has a saltlick BBQ.

                        If I am desperate I just get a salad and pick out the crap I don't wanna eat.


                        I find that if I bring snacks... I am committed to eating them. If I don't and am forced to purchase food as needed... I only eat when I am hungry. Yes I am a pig.

                            Ku-Va in the Miami airport is great. I had this broiled and seared steak with sauteed onions, white rice, and fried plantains - way too good for airport food.

                              At Dallas Love Field (Texas), they have a Moe's Southwest Grill which is wonderful for someone like me who cannot eat egg, soy, dairy, or egg. Their mission is to have foods without "junk" (although it isn't all organic) and their beef is grass fed.

                              I get a taco salad without the bowl. They have pork (really good), steak, chicken, beans, or organic tofu and all sorts of veggies to throw on top. I like to get some guacamole on it and I use that for some bonus flavor. Back when I could do dairy, I'd eat their queso which was delicious. It is really tasty and I always look forward to eating there!
