Snack cravings almost always hit at the worst time, and I was determined to (a) steer clear of all airport convenience stores and (b) avoid any food that might be handed out on the plane. Since I knew I had a 12-hour journey ahead of me (thanks to a layover), I made sure to pack light but high-energy options, like dates and chocolate-covered almonds. I stashed the goodies in zip-lock sliders and brought extra food scrap bags for compostable waste (like date pits or banana peels), which I then disposed of properly after the flight. The clear bags made it easy for me to spot my treats at the bottom of my tote—another win for minimal touching.
