You would think that by now with all the travel I do it would be without any stress! Ha.
Well, I have to be honest, I do get a certain amount of anxiety on the subject, but I’m going to resolve that!
There are airlines like Alaska Airlines that they have a meal for purchase that is gluten and dairy free and Delta Airlines have Gluten-Free meals available in 1st class. United however, has nothing at all and they really don’t want to accommodate much. So, what do you do to travel Gluten-Free in airports???
You need to…
Plan in Advance!
I always plan to eat right before my flight. Plan to eat before you arrive at the airport, or take a look at my resturant list of GOOD EATS at airports.
I take a “lunch box”. Inside I carry a 3 oz. container of creamer and a sweetener packet for coffee and condiments such as mayo, mustard, salt and pepper, etc. I always have some peanut butter singles and a few Kind Bars.
Travel Lunch Box…or technically a “Bag”
Coffee Creamer in travel shampoo bottles
Container I keep in Lunch “Box”
Always bring your own condiments! Mayo, mustard, gluten-free soy sauce, ect.
I bought hard boiled eggs at the Hudson News Store. I also found popcorn chips (my favorite) and I made myself an awesome meal of egg salad and chips with some peanut butter for my 6 hour flight back home to Alaska.
I am working on making a collective list of GOOD airport eats! Stay tuned!
