I like almonds, particularily dark chocolate roasted almonds. However, I usually reach for the granola bar.

I pack 2-4 pieces of fresh fruit/veggies (apples, nectarines, carrots) each in their own baggie so that they don’t leak in my bag and I have somewhere to store the waste. I also pack trail mix (Love Double Feature from Whole Foods) and a pack of graham crackers. I make myself eat from least to most processed (fruit, trail mix, crackers) and drink water in between. I find that I’m usually full before I get to the crackers:)

A couple granola bars, but only the old fashioned crunchy kind and just granola and maybe nuts and/or honey… no sweet sugary ones.  I don’t usually eat much when I fly tho.

@cooperlove:  I fly long haul and have low blood sugar issues… so I typically bring lots of carby stuff – Pretzels, chips, chocolate, crackers – for if I nap a bit too long or suddenly realize I’m hungry “too late.” I also bring nuts or cheese cubes (preferring the latter) for a hit of protein. I only eat lightly but somewhat often.

I like the Kind Bars for traveling… and TONS of water. On one long (10 hour) flight where I couldn’t restock my water before the flight in time I had horrible bags under my eyes for like 3 days afterwards. So keep drinking even if you’re not thirsty! The dark chocolate almonds are also a good idea- something that’s a little bit of a “treat” to help keep you away from salty, greasy stuff like McD’s 🙂

My favorite travel snack is almonds mixed with craisins/raisins.

Gummy bears. And I always get a hot dog if I’m connecting somewhere. No idea why, but it’s a habit I’ve formed ever since I first flew somewhere.

Just flew today and packed a bag of skinnypop popcorn! I ate about half of it during my fligok lol! But I didn’t feel too bad about it… Better than candy bars!

Protein bars, sandwich wraps… nothing too salty, and I always drink a lot of water because the air is so dry in an airplane.

I like to take trail mix (with m&m’s) and snag a bottle of water before getting on the plane.  It’s easy to carry, filling, fairly healthy, and the bits of chocolate (besides being yummy) help if I feel my blood sugar dropping.

I used to travel to California annually to visit family and it became tradition that I would buy a can of pringles and some goldfish. I don’t do that trip anymore, but if the trip is long, I always get Pringles for the sake of tradition (and because they’re a tasty treat)!

For some reason long haul flights = shitty foods. I pack chips and candy, things to nibble on. My fav is Cheddar Goldfish. Yum!
