What are the best foods to eat when you fly? According to Dan Askin the best foods to avoid before flying are fatty foods with high sodium, starch and fat, avoid foods that create gas, beans and raw vegetables, carbonated drinks and alcohol. He suggests
" fasting for about 16 hours before a long flight may actually help to fend off jet lag".
So low GI foods are a natural choice as they take up little space, are easy to eat with no preparation, provide a slow release of energy and are 100 percent natural. Dried fruits including dates, apricots and sultanas. Nuts such as almonds, walnuts, pecan and brazil nuts. Together these two food groups will provide you enough nutrition and energy for a flight.
