Ok, so I'm headed overseas for two months, the United Arab Emirates and northern Oman to be specific. I work for an adventure company and will have little control over what food I have access to 5 days a week. Most meals have veggies and meat and I can skip the bread. One problem I'm anticipating is having access to fast snacks when I need them. There will be mornings when breakfast will be all wheat-based carbs and I will definitely need my own food. I'll be able to cook some on my days off so I can make paleo bars and similar items if I need to.
I'm also concerned about spending around 24 + hours in airports and planes getting there and want to bring food with me on the plane. Am I allowed to bring food onto the plane in my carry on? I brought some last time but I heard there was some change recently. Is it a bad idea to put sealed food in my checked luggage?
Here are some ideas I've had but I was hoping you guys would have a few more.
- smoked alaskan salmon (any luck finding some that doesn't need refrigeration?)
- pre-packaged beef and buffalo jerky
- dehydrated strawberries
- fruit leather
- paleo bars
I live near a whole foods and trader joes, if that makes a difference.
p.s. I'm trying to keep my carb count low to loose weight
