Question for the Crew: “Must have” Food Items

This week’s question:  What food items are “must haves” for trips?

Here’s what your co-workers had to say!
"My go-to snack is carrots and some type of dip, usually hummus or ranch. I also bring an additive for water like Splenda lemonade, so drinking water isn't so bland. On long flights I put a tea bag in the water and let it brew in the window." Justin Zeller, DEN FO

"Boiled eggs (great for a quick breakfast or snack), jerky, rotisserie chicken, potato (you can microwave it in the room), instant oatmeal packs, cup of noodles, tuna packets (alone, with crackers, or on sandwich thins for a filling lunch sandwich), avocado, zucchini and carrots for a healthy snack (pair with hummus for more flavor) and black beans and rice. And a "must have" to keep food cold is an ice bag for headaches. They don't sweat, and they keep food cold for a long time. Freeze leftover lasagna, chili, and chicken dinners in a serving size Tupperware container for meals. Keep mayo, mustard, hot sauce, salt, pepper, whatever you like in your bag to spice up tuna and other snacks!" Jessica Mollett, RDU FA

"As flight attendants, we have to budget carefully, and eating out can get expensive. As a culinary major, when I have a trip (whether it's two, three or four days) I cook and pack my own food. For a typical four-day trip I pack: Dinner Meal 1: Boneless Grilled Chicken Breast Yellow Rice Fresh Cut String Beans Dinner Meal 2: Grilled Chicken Salad Packages lettuce, grilled bell peppers, grilled onions, tomatoes in a separate zip lock bag Dinner Meal 3:  Grilled Pork Chop  Steamed Cabbage Cornbread Lunch/Snacks - Ham and Cheese Sandwich - Fresh grapes, strawberries and peaches" Justin Brown, RDU FA
