Traveling with snacks through TSA can be tricky! It’s tough to save money and eat healthy at airports. So our friends at the Travel Channel have compiled a list of tricks and treats to make your own healthy, TSA approved snacks!
Don’t Forget 3-1-1!
All savvy travelers know the 3-1-1 rule! Better recognized as the 3-1-1 liquids rule, the TSA limited travel sized containers to 3.4 ounces or less. Any containers carrying more than 3.4 ounces of liquid should be packed in a carry on. However, a wide-mouth mason jar is the perfect container to carry some nibbles for a long flight.
Forget Rubbish – Choose Hummus
Nutritious and tasty, hummus is the superfood of dips! To bring the zesty dip on your next trip, you will need a wide-mouth mason jar and a plastic applesauce container. Fill up the bottom of your mason jar with your veggies of choice; say, carrots and celery. On top of your veggies, place the applesauce container, filled with hummus, directly on top of your veggies. Screw on the lid of your mason jar and you are set!
An Apple a Day Keeps Poor Weather at Bay
Who doesn’t love a crisp apple? A great source of essential nutrients, a crunchy apple is a must for any traveler. To keep your apple fresh and easy to eat, cut the apple into six pieces. Then, hold the apple together and wrap a rubber band around the fruit to keep it fresh. Place the apple in a Ziploc bag, with a travel sized pack of peanut butter and you are ready!
