Hi all. I had been debating what I was going to survive on for a two flight, 25 hour trip to Bali that I'm leaving for tomorrow.
I've posted a blog about what I decided on. I hope this helps any one who is traveling soon!!
Perfect, Mandy ... I am looking right NOW as we are traveling TOMORROW ... did you have any issues with what food is allowed ???? ...
your blog is beautiful, BTW!!
Does anyone have any other ideas ?? I don't want to do dried fruit, for obvious reasons LOL! ... Right now, I've got macadamias, pumpkin seeds, some bars for Hubs, I'm going to get the jerky/pemmican today .... has anyone ever taken CHEESE or HB eggs ?? Do "they" let you ???
We fly to the U.S regularly and I can never get a meal to suit my needs. There isn't even a low carb option with American Airlines, although they cater for most other dietary needs. I always end up eating the gluten free option but it's sooooo salty tasting, and I suspect contains a lot of MSG because I blow up like a balloon after eating it. I don't think they'd let you take any food substances past security.
I've safely taken a big bag of nuts with me on the plane. Security will only bat an eye at gel-like foods such as jams and sauces.
Also, most airports have food services after the checkpoint, so you could buy 1 or 2 salads for the flight.
I'd just go with a couple of pounds of pre-cooked bacon myself!
We're going to be out of town for 5 days and I was wondering what I can carry so not all our meals are in a restaurant. Our hotel room won't have a stove. Thanks for the ideas MandyGirl! Thanks for the bacon idea LTC. I think I'll boil some eggs and cook bacon and take them with me and keep in the refrigerator in our room. We'll be driving (4-hr drive), so I guess I can carry some salad greens, salad trimmings and EVOO too.
Have fun in Bali MadyGirl, it's one of those places I've always wanted to visit.
