3 Healthy Hacks for Eating at the Airport

One thing that everyone hates about air travel is the food. Airline food is notoriously poor, while food at the airport costs a fortune — and frequently isn’t the best for you. Thankfully, there are a few healthy hacks that you can use to make air travel a little more delicious and nutritious.

  • Bring your own water bottle. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not against TSA regulations to bring your own empty water bottle through security — it’s only the liquid itself that is against the rules. Make sure that your water bottle is empty before you pass through security and fill up your bottle at the water fountain after you make it through.
  • Pack snacks the night before. Many travelers also don’t realize that they are completely free to bring their own snacks through security as long as their snacks don’t contain liquid. Some fantastic, healthy snacks for travel include almonds, grapes, fresh fruit, popcorn, and granola bars.
  • Enjoy a meal at the Mexican restaurant. If you do need to eat at the airport, check the directory to see if there is a Mexican restaurant in your terminal. Mexican eateries tend to have healthier options than standard fast-food choices. Choose lean protein and skip the cheese and sour cream for a lower-calorie burrito or salad bowl.
