I have to fly down to Ga. on 3/25 and drive back to New England, with my toddler. I have had such a hard time with eating lately, for both of us. I am trying to follow the Brewer Diet and get lots of protein, but lots of times I will be sick of food before finishing making the food itself.<br><br>
I'm concerned b/c im borderline hypoglycemic (?sp) and have had several episodes of shakes lately when my blood sugar has been low. So, Im concerned about eating on the trip down on the plane (only 3 hours, but another 90 minute trip from the airport to our destination, and another few hours until we will be able to eat dinner).<br><br>
I'm also very very concerned about liquids, mostly on the plane b/c I am always thirsty (I think Im just going to have to play the pregnancy card w/ that one on that plane and demand lots of beverages).<br><br>
Our return trip will be easy as far as accesssiblity to foods and I can pack alot of nonperishable stuff in our check in luggage (I will have to check luggage b/c I will need to wear my toddler, carry the car seat, and a carry on bag with us...we wont be driving straight home so we will have to pack for 5 days, not just 2.<br><br>
any advice on what to pack foodwise?<br><br>

I don't know about food. But, for getting lots of fluids, just buy water bottles after you get through security at the airport and take that on the plane with you. After you're through security, you don't have to worry about liquids that are purchased at that point. You can take those on the plane with you so just buy a few bottles of water. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I like:<br>
- nutra-grain bars<br>
- individual applesauces<br>
- peanut butter and crackers<br>
- fruit cups<br>
- bagies of nuts<br>
- cans of V-8<br>
- individual juices<br>
Before any trips with lots of delays between food, Dh, Dd, and I go to the grocery (Big Lots is fun, too) and stare at the "lunch box" aisles looking for the healthiest/easiest stuff... variety is important, and you'll eat all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I don't have good luck with eating lots of nuts on what could be an empty stomach (when traveling) but maybe you would be OK with them. They are hard to digest and better if you soak them.<br><br>
Maybe plain cheese sandwiches, like just cheese, bread and mustard so they don't get soggy.
