Definitely check TSA. I brought as apple and a salad (with a metal fork) on my last flight with no problems. You can bring a much wider variety of foods than I thought you could.

depends on where your flying if international you might not be able to bring anything that has an animal source into the country (which means eggs and jerky would be a no go) but I agree look at the TSA site to see what they have to say, though if they follow their own rules is another matter entirely.

Check the TSA Website. They will tell you what is permitted.

I took nutrition bars in my carry on.

If you are flying through a major hub, there are many restaurant options.

I've been eating low carbish (less than 100g of carbs a day, nothing extreme) for a few weeks and like how it makes me feel. Next week, I'm about to head out on a vacation that will involve two flights and an hour and a half in a bus. I'll eat breakfast at home, but my body and my wallet would love it if I weren't stuck with airport/plane food on the flights.

Currently, my thoughts are to bring:
-flax based, homemade crackers
-hard boiled egg

Does anyone else have any ideas? The nuts and crackers and jerky will also keep until the return flights (5 days later), but I'd love any ideas about what else to bring that will get through security, keep for that long, and not involve lots of carbs. :)
