Do you love flying? Probably not. Most people don’t find it to be the most enjoyable experience. From the stress of checking in and security to the rush of finding your gate in the enormous labyrinth that is the airport, it’s always taxing. Even once you’ve placed your carry-on in the overhead bin and settled into your seat, you’ve still got another few hours or so until you reach your destination. You’re tired and probably hungry too, which makes it all the more crushing when you remember what airplane food tastes like.
In this video, we’re going to break it down for you and show you exactly why you should tough it up and avoid eating on the plane. The meals consist of cheap ingredients haphazardly thrown together in an assembly-line-style factory kitchen 10 hours before take off, and it’s not even very nutritious. Remember that you are what you eat. Would you want to treat your body with this food?
More than that, the environment probably isn’t one in which you should be consuming food. When do you think your tray table was last cleaned and sanitized? The truth about airline sanitation standards will shock you.
Stick around to learn more about why you should never eat airplane food. We’re going to tell you all about how it’s made, what’s in it, why it’s bad for you, and even give you a few options in case you can’t beat your hunger. Do you eat airplane food? Why or why not? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
