When I enquired re a few things to do with allergies & bringing food on my impending flight to US...I had a very helpful (not) reply that I was welcome to bring: "beverages and other items purchased in the secured area of the airport" I guess they just do not understand about allergies... I will not be able to buy any food from airports even if I wanted to

As it is an overnight flight I was figuring on not needing too much food & will bring some chia seeds & cocoa on board, which will see me through...

Have enquired re getting the opened (or an extra unopened) packet of seeds through customs if there are any left and/or if I want to bring some with me...  Wondering if anyone had had any luck this way?

Maybe you glue some to a porcelain figure and claim it was your Chia pet.

Perhaps egg white (chicken). At least it's a neutral for O's.

I've always brought food on flights, I thought they only limited the liquid items?  That's as far as airport security goes, I'm not sure of the limitations customs has.

I did unknowingly smuggle some US beef (homemade jerky) into Japan though, without realizing Japan didn't allow it, so I suppose it's always good to check.  Some travel websites or forums may have some seasoned travelers on them who have flown from NZ to US, that could answer your question better than I.

You never give up eh Denver? Only trouble is I would've needed to start growing the hair quite a few days ago & like most things I do, it is done at the last minute...(I should be packing right now as I have to work Wed & Thurs prior to jumping on the plane )

Ooh thanks Ruthie - didn't think of that

After going through an extensive list with Air NZ (who are very helpful) we have agreed that I bring what I need (to be consumed on the flight)

Oh & maybe the food won't be so bad.. I am getting an upgrade *fingers crossed* due to Mr P's frequent flyer status

Some airlines offer gluten free meal options, especially on international flights.  Sometimes those options are pretty pathetic and often outright wrong, but if you're upgraded then maybe they'd give you something decent.

Thanks for the suggestion Melissa - Hmmm something to think about, but my experience of gluten free foods are they are full of corn, potato starch and/or gums...

Yeah ABJoe - staying home is sure a better option   but does limit involvement with family eh??!!

Possum.. I have flown many times and I would think that for a long flight the airlines would be happy to accommodate some personal needs as far as foods are concerned.. They make special Kosher foods, or grain free, or other things for O's... I don't see and problems.. have a good flight.  the only thing you are not allowed to bring through customs is meat or fruit.. but there is no problem with that as you can buy both as soon as you get out of the airport.. safe travel..

take extra pillows or bring one for your neck, and or a jacket as they sometimes fly with loads of cold air. On some flights they give out blankets, on some they don't, ask ahead of time so you know..

and having a carry on bag that can go under your feet is a good thing for your legs..BUT it must be lightweight to carry .. all else is going in the regular luggage with WHEELS..  

stand up and walk around as often as you feel possible..have loose clothes and loose waistband, and if you can- just put water on your legs/feet to circulate the blood.. sleep well and if need be bring eye covers for darkness..  enjoy the sunrise wherever you will see it..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Back to food to take/eat while away...I just tested out some oat bran this afternoon, thinking it would be something I could have while away...
It wasn't gluten free & whilst I didn't get the usual breakout - only slight itching on cheek - boy did I have the worst bloating I have had for ages & really bad lower backache!!!
As well as chronic yawning tiredness (which I rarely ever get - even if really tired) & shivering, even though it'd been a warm day...

I was spending the day packing & I always try on outfits as as I pack them...Well I couldn't even get into my jeans, so had to temporarily abandon that exercise & head for the epsom salts; just to get it out of my system   Feel a lot better now (including my back) after that & some lamb stew... Now I will definitely just stick to chia seeds for brekky - or lamb

Guess it's the explorer part of me reacting?? Now back to the dancing errr I mean packing;)
