I know I’m always complaining about aeroplane ‘food’ - as my Ayurvedic teacher in India says - it’s AMA in a box (ama = an Ayurvedic term for toxic plaque - a biochemical impurity.) Maybe it’s because I’m continually flying and exposed to it after lecturing on preventing non-communicable disease through nutrition that it’s highlighting how bad it is (and airport food options in general btw.) But seriously, if you can do some quick prep and avoid eating it, you would be supporting your body significantly.
Here is a simple, healthy breakfast hack for travelling - Overnight Oats.
The night before travelling, add oats to a portable, well sealed container (old jars work great), mix in some spices like cinnamon and cardamom, add raisins/dried fruit, some berries, nuts and seeds - whatever you like really and top with a milk of your choice (I use almond). Put in the fridge overnight to soak and remember to grab it out before leaving the next morning. Done! If you wanted to warm it up, you could add some hot water before eating.
Delicious, nutrient dense and energy building. It’ll leave you feeling much better than a soggy microwaved ham and cheese pizza for breaky.
