Taking your own food aboard planes is an excellent way to save money and skip the calorie-laden airport offerings. But with TSA rules and regulations changing almost weekly, what’s safe to pack and snack on? Try our ideas:
Bring on the sandwiches
Wrapped foods get a pass in the TSA line. Bring your favorite sandwich along to eat while boarding. Avoid ‘wiches with anything that needs refrigeration (skip the spoiled mayo), a lot of condiments (hello, soggy bread) or anything that has the potential to spend more time in your teeth than your tummy (we’re looking at you, everything bagel). We vote for the classic PB&J with some sliced banana for an extra vitamin boost.
Make your own trail mix
And get funky with it. Throw in nuts of your choice, chocolate chips, dried fruit, granola — the sky is (literally) the limit. Pack enough to nosh on several times throughout your flight. Your own stash will beat the generic-brand peanuts you’re sure to get onboard.
Don’t skip the fruit and veggies
Unpeeled natural fruit, like an orange, is good to go. Load up on your favorite fruits and veggies for a hassle-free snack. Peel, slice and carry in a Tupperware for convenience. Pair fruit with easy-to-carry items, like yogurt or pretzels for a more filling food meal.
The Alamo was a place occupied by Spanish settlers, and an important part of the early stages of Texas’s war for independence from Mexico. The Spanish settlers established a military and prepared for a fight. During the early stages of the war, a group of Texan soldiers ambushed and took over the Alamo from the Mexican military and gained control of San Antonio. Shortly after, the Mexican military gained control once again. The Battle of The Alamo went on for years and eventually ended with the Texans winning.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
