But the real fun is in my lunchbox!

I made hard-boiled eggs yesterday for the perfect travel protein. Plus cheese + crackers, fruit, trail mix and a breakfast sandwich from Great Harvest.

This is breakfast part II – almond butter, honey, granola on Cville Crunch!!

You’re pretty good at packing food for the airport! I always end up with just an apple and a granola bar… haha. Have a safe trip!

My mom travels to the U.S. from Canada, so she has to be at the airport 2 hours early and she would like to bring some fruit, like an apple but they took it away from her. She is still in the airport, not in the plane…That’s strict. Come on, really? She just wanted to snack on it while waiting for the plane. She would have finished it in about 5 minutes… Next time she will bring a banana, they cannot say that’s a Canadian fruit.
Have fun!

When traveling internationally they seldom let you take any fruit. It sucks, I almost got in a fight with the customs agent in the Bahamas over an apple a few years ago. Personally, I think there are way more important things to be worried about crossing borders than fruit!

Fruit can be really dangerous. It can carry bugs etc, and some countries have to be strict to protect their unique and delicate ecosystems. In NZ the fine for bringing in fruit from another country is $200. On the spot, no questions asked. That is because the wrong fruit/bugs can disrupt and distroy our ecosystem.

I got stopped by US customs once for an orange that I forgot was in my backpack. It traveled all the way from Sweden. I wanted to eat it on the plane, but forgot about it and a little dog at baggage claim went nuts when he found me and my Swedish orange! No produce, seeds, or plants can cross international borders without special clearance.

That sandwich sounds great- the only thing missing is a side of milk!

Your travel snacks look delicious (and that sandwich sounds like an amazing combo! I’ve never thought of putting granola on a sandwich before). I’m planning a trip in a few weeks and have been jotting down some ideas for healthy snacks to take with me; hard-boiled eggs were on my list but I didn’t know if that would be strange – glad to see you thought they were good travel snacks, too! Have a safe flight!

The travel snacks look great! I am beginning to experiment with making my own whole grain sourdough! So far, the first batch turned out dense, but tasty; do you have any advice on how to make it less dense?

Wow, I never thought of hard boiled eggs as a travel snack but that’s perfect! Safe travels and have fun in San Diego – I’ve never been but it’s on my list. Can’t wait to see what you get up to!

Reply

20 faith February 25, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Just please don’t eat them on the plane! I love hard boiled eggs but the smell of someone else’s is one of the grosser aromas! (and I don’t even have a sensitive nose!)

21 Sarah February 25, 2012 at 4:25 pm

I was going to say the exact same thing! Eggs are NOT a good airplane snack. Kath please tell us you didn’t eat them on the plane!?

You probably talked about your new computer and I totally missed it. Off to look at your back posts to see if I can find some info on it, as I’m looking for a new laptop as well! Mine is so sloggishly slow!

Love your choice of eats! :D

I love the foods you pack for traveling- I’m never that creative!

27 Maria@ Sinfully Nutritious February 25, 2012 at 10:07 am

You make the best snacks. Your hard boiled eggs reminded me of the vegan deviled tofu “eggs” I made awhile ago. I am going to have to make them again this weekend. They are a perfect protein rich snack to keep in the fridge!

Have a safe trip.

28 Becca @ Blueberry Smiles February 25, 2012 at 10:15 am

Those look like the best airplane eats! I bring hard boiled eggs too….though I’m always afraid they smell and annoy other flyers lol

Reply

29 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen February 25, 2012 at 10:19 am

Eggs might be a great protein option but I’d totally be giving you a dirty look if you peeled that thing on the plane next to me! Can’t deny the stench of hard boiled eggs! ;)

Ha! That’s exactly what I was thinking!

31 Paige @ Healthy Hits the Spot February 25, 2012 at 10:22 am

The weather here in SD is good- we’re having a cool, misty morning but it’s supposed to be 70 degrees this afternoon. Hope you get to be outside a bit when you get here!

39 Kris February 25, 2012 at 11:18 am

As much as I love hard boiled eggs, the only place I eat them is in the privacy in my own home. Too many other funky smells (and funky people) in the close confines of a plane.

Mmm, yummy airplane bits! When I was younger, I LOVED “going out to eat” in airports – it felt like such a treat! – and I couldn’t figure out why my parents always made us pack sandwiches. Now I know why! I despise airport food, so I make something of a game of trying to pack the most nutritious + fun + portable snacks. Heidi at 101 Cookbooks has some great ideas! I’ve been afraid to take eggs, though… I’m worried I’ll get dirty looks because of the smell :P
Have a safe flight and a good trip! Enjoy CA, my home state :)

As I was scrolling down to find the BERF link on the side of your page, I saw that you have an app to read KERF on your phone?! How have I never known this before?? You need to do some serious advertising for that on your blog, because that is super exciting! Now I can spend even more time perusing your blog!

Happy travels! :)

Oh dear lord. I really hope you won’t be eating those eggs on the plane! That would be very inconsiderate to your fellow travelers. Since you have pregnancy on the brain… Just think…there could be another pregnant woman sitting near you and the stench could really bother her.

In reading the comments the other day I noticed you were going to be in Temecula tonight at the Great Harvest that is literally minutes from my home!!!!! I am tempted to come say Hi If I am home (might be at the beach).

Can you please recommend they carry Naturally Nutty, I’ve never been able to find it here and I can’t bear to pay shipping, just a thought. I am sure you will all have such fun comparing notes.

The owner probably won’t remember this but I was talking to him about a year or so ago and I mentioned you and your blog and how you were opening up a Great Harvest and I was appalled he hadn’t heard of you =)

Have fun in the sun, the weather is perfect right now.

Marie- Go say hi to Kath! She’s very friendly- and showed me around to some great spots when I was in Charlottesville!
And I’ll get you some Naturally Nutty next time I’m at a GH (the closest one to me is about 45 min away though).

I thought of your (Eggs on a Plane) as a comedy skit ala Seinfeld
Innocent faux pas and the social consequences seemed hilarious to me.
You might have removed my comment thinking I meant to offend.
Not the case. just my NY sence of humor.

I love that you packed your own food. Did you have any problems getting it through security? I am traveling from Atlanta,GA to Fairbanks, Alaska with my two kiddo’s this summer to visit family. I want to bring food/snacks to avoid airport food ($$$ and health factor.) Plus my son has a peanut allergy so I have to be careful. Have fun in sunny CA. I grew up in the SF Bay Area. I do miss it.
