Purely Dominica

Purely Dominica


In the few next up-and-coming weeks thousands of Dominicans will be boarding flights from all corners of the global destiny for Dominica. Nearly every Dominican I’ve spoken too in the last few months – who is living abroad wants to be back home to celebrate Dominica’s Reunion – 30 years of independence.

If you’re one of those travelers who are concerned about eating healthy while traveling, airports can be particularly nasty hiccup in your plans. A club sandwich for instance, a common airport staple for wayward travelers, has 700 calories in single serving. Packing healthy snacks is your best hedge against fat and sugar-loaded or overpriced airport eats.

Once upon a time everyone had the liberty to stuff whatever food your heart desired into you carry-on. But today, according to the Transportation Security Administration website limits the following food and liquids items:

  • Beverages brought from home or purchased before reaching the security checkpoint in a 3 oz. or smaller container and in your quart-size, zip-top plastic bag.
  • Canned or jarred goods such as soup, sauces, peanut butter, fruits, vegetables and jellies – 3 oz. or smaller
  • Cheese in pressurized containers, Jell-O, pudding, whipping cream, yogurt or gel-like food substances – 3 oz. or smaller

If you Pay attention to the size regulations, it will keep your oversize items from ending up in the TSA’s trash bin.

On the etiquette side of things they suggest avoiding foods with an overly strong scent for the benefit of your fellow, and possibly more sensitive.

What snacks have you found to be the perfect mix of airline-friendly and healthy? Share with your fellow readers and travelers below.
