10 Gluten-Free Airplane Snacks

We love to travel and one of the biggest challenges is finding gluten-free options in airports and especially on planes. I learned so many things as a fitness competitor, especially traveling for shows with a restrictive diet but the biggest thing is the ability to take food through TSA security! Yes! You can bring your own food with you to the airport and on the plane. I used to bring a 6-pack bag cooler (it’s a brand competitors use frequently) filled with baked fish, chicken and steak along with meatballs, sweet potatoes and veggies to fill my belly. If you think people complain about you eating gluten-free, try cracking open some tuna on a plane without your neighbors giving you the stink eye!

I like to think I’ve mastered the ability to bring things with me but even now and again I forget so if you have gluten-free snack items you love to travel with please feel free to post them below! The more information we can share for each other, the better and as you know that’s why I started Pretty Little Celiac!

Here are my top 10 gluten-free airport and plan travel snacks!

  • Fruit and/or dried fruit
  • Nuts
  • Raisins
  • Gluten-Free bars like Vans, Lara bars, Kind bars etc.
  • Go Picnic kits

  • Sample packets of protein powder – purchased or separated yourself – mix at the airport
