When I think about all the people in the world and in our own communities who are experiencing food insecurity, I remember to stay humble and grateful. So I remind myself that if I’m eating airport or airplane food, it means I’m traveling, which is a privilege, not a right, after all.

I’ve read too many reviews ranting on about how airplane food is terrible. But why complain?

Think about it: you are consuming food while riding on an airplane!

A flight attendant brings you food and drink to make sure you feel comfortable and forget for a moment that even with the seat belt securely fastened, you’re untethered, sitting in a metal tube soaring through the sky at over 500 miles per hour, and flying eight miles above the Earth’s surface.

I don’t know about you, but airplane food sounds like comfort to me!

Here are a few pictures of food I’ve had while traveling. Who says airplane food is terrible? In the grand scheme of things, it’s all good!

This lunch was my absolute favorite! Not only were the chicken panini and chocolate mousse delicious, they were served on real plates. That’s a real spoon and cloth napkin, too!

Bon appétit and happy travels!
