A Travel WIAW

I was pretty good about taking pictures of my meals today ... Until it got awkward in the closed quarters of the airplane.
Oatmeal with walnuts, apple, and cinnamon. Tea with Almond Milk on the side!

A pre-flight snack and an Americano.  Energy levels were lagging at this point and I knew I needed to get quite a bit of schoolwork done on the flight.

Vegan eats were pretty hard to find in the airport. So, I had a garden salad - basically just lettuce, a handful of shredded carrots, and a slice of tomato- with a sweet potato that I brought from my apartment mixed in.

My salad barely held me over until 2, so I broke into the Go Picnic that I found at the airport snack store for some protein.

The Go Picnic was pretty good! I wouldn't go out if my way to purchase one, but if I'm stuck, I'll certainly buy one. I especially enjoyed the dried edamame.

Towards the end of the flight, I started to feel a bit nauseous. I really wanted some hot tea, but the flight attendants stopped serving beverages due to the turbulence. To calm my stomach, I had a few more crackers from my Go Picnic box.

Finally, we landed and my dad brought me home, where I nom'd on some (unpictured) tempeh curry, salad, grapes, strawberries, crackers, and raisins. I was totally in that weird travel exhaustion state, where I'm both tired and not tired because I didn't actually do anything except sit for most if the day.

How do you deal with dietary needs/restrictions in an airport?


  1. Your oatmeal looks awesome! One time I brought like 3 granola bars, 1 sandwich and a banana into Six Flags. The lady that checked bags freaked out at me and of course I lied that I had celiac disease. She told me to go to first aid, and well.. I booked it ;) You gotta do what you gotta do! Haha have a good Thursday, girl. Safe travels!

    1. Haha! That's such a clever way to get around security! I should try that one!

  2. I actually really like the Nugo bars, especially the chocolate pretzel one. I stocked up on some to take with me to Boston!

    I hope you enjoy some downtime before the race!

    1. I don't think I've seen those Nugos around! I'll have to give them a try. I hope your taper is going well!
