Healthy food to pack for day-long plane ride?

Ugh. Gotta go cross-country on Monday, back on Wednesday. Gotta switch flights, too. Ugh.

Any ideas for packable, healthy stuff. I live near a Trader Joe's and many natural groceries...

Veggies, veggies, veggies
Water bottles

If any flights have meals, you can ask for vegetarian or special dietary needs which are typically tastier and healthier.

Also, some card games or crossword puzzles... try not to eat out of boredom. Eat as you might normally... even pack a sandwich if you want to have something substantial.

Don't eat airline food!

These snack ideas so far are good, but there's no protein to keep you full.

I go to Trader Joe's and get mini whole wheat pita bread and make two small smoked turkey, lettuce, tomato, avocado sandwich (with mustard - no mayo). Add a slice of lite Jarlsberg swiss cheese even. Low, low calories, healthy and will keep you going.

Also: apples, bars such as clif nectar or lara. Also pria bars. A big bottle of water.

I also really like the unsulfered apple rings from Trader Joe's.

This is my conference food baggie that is currently in my carryon (leaving tomorrow morning for a 2 day conference); 2 high protein cereal bars, 2 kashi trail mix bars, a bag of raw almonds and a Pria bar, 1 packet of Crystal light to go, and a packet of Emergen-C (vitamin C drink mix in case I start feeling run-down). That's usually enough to keep me away from the pastries at the continental breakfast and the platters of cookies at the afternoon break - it might keep you away from the Cinnabon at the airport.

OP here- thanks and keep 'em coming!

Did you know that now food on the flight is for purchase??? So if you forget your food, you are forced to buy the junk!!!

how long will your entire flight be? maybe try to eat a large breakfast or lunch before departing and just bring along some whole-grain pretzels. you can go for a while w/o eating if you bring a book or music to entertain you...

I think airplane cabins are dehydrating & always try to travel with a bottle of water. That drink cart never seems to come often enough.

I would just buy one of TJ's already-prepared wraps (they're 300ish calories) to take. I often take transatlantic flights and have this ambitious desire to make my own packed lunch before I go, but never have the time to do it, and end up taking random snacky things or even raw ingredients (since I'm gone too long for them to keep), which are a pain. Try to eat light, to avoid discomfort from being confined on the plane, and stay hydrated (ask a stewardess for for water whenever you're thirsty).

I second the poster who mentioned that eating out of boredom is the danger with airports and travelling -- you often eat or drink because there's nothing else to do while you wait. Don't fall into that trap.
