How to eat right on board: the secrets of a flight attendant

Former flight attendant and dietitian Sarah Anderson, best known for her advice on in-flight nutrition, has shared what to eat on board.

Sleep first

Preparations for the flight should begin ahead of time. First of all, you need to sleep well: this way it will be easier for the body to transfer the flight. Before a flight, Anderson recommends a diet rich in antioxidants and vitamins, as well as plenty of protein. Vegetables (beets, sauerkraut), ginger and garlic are great. The main thing is not to board a plane on an empty stomach.

Do not overdo it in flight

In flight, we experience an increased need for sugar and salt, but they should not be abused. It is better to refuse sweets (especially sodas) altogether, and if you want salty, give preference to cheese and olives. Try not to forget about the protein.

The most important thing is to drink as much water as possible to stay hydrated.

After arriving at your destination, eat lean meats, green vegetables and nuts, but processed foods are taboo. According to Anderson, these simple recommendations will help the passenger feel great during and after the flight.
