Before flying, you may think it’s better if you skip liquids to avoid going to the bathroom or maybe skip eating until you get to your destination. But, according to HuffPost, this is actually not a good idea! Here are some of the best eating and drinking tips from flight attendants.
First, eat something light to start your day. Some good choices are a healthy granola bar or a serving of fruit. One flight attendant prefers blackberries, blueberries, and grapes since they travel well and provide fiber. Another fiber-filled snack is hummus and carrots.
They say to stay away from high sodium foods since this will cause bloating and dehydration.
You also don’t want to overload your digestive system so for your next meal (which should be bigger), so keep it balanced. Make sure to include some protein, healthy fats, and fiber.
You should drink tons of water since being high in the sky dehydrates you a ton. Also, stay away from soda. There’s nothing worse than a headache midflight, ugh! To avoid, you definitely want to stay hydrated.
What do you eat on travel days? Do you usually eat like these flight attendants? Or do you try to avoid eating and drinking until you get to your destination?
