There are a few foods that, under no circumstances, should be brought on a plane. Or a bus. Or pretty much any enclosed space you're about to be stuck in for awhile. Tuna fish, stinky cheese, and hard-boiled eggs rank high on this list.
But when you're Martha Stewart, you can do whatever the heck you want, side-eyes be damned. Stewart spoke to the New York Times for its "Carry-On" travel column this week, and shared that her go-to plane snack is none other than hard-boiled eggs.
"My hard-boiled eggs are just so much better than any eggs on the plane," Stewart said. "They're from my own chickens. I take them for everybody I'm traveling with." (Hopefully they're pre-peeled, otherwise, that's got to be a pain to clean up — especially when there's turbulence.)
At least she shares? Her other travel snacks are a little more tame scent-wise, but definitely fancier than our usual granola bars and candy routine. For long flights, she takes "some very good food that I know I'll want to eat on the plane." This includes smoked salmon sandwiches on seven-grain bread, tabbouleh salad, or homemade yogurt with apple sauce (think she has to follow the 3-1-1 rule?).
Basically, she comes prepared, because Martha doesn't waste her time with junk. "I try to avoid plane food most of the time," Stewart said. "I just don't find it very appetizing."
Once she has landed, though, Stewart is all about exploring local food scenes. She said she's never tempted to stay in bed and order room service, preferring to be out and about when she travels. "I find the best breakfast place in town," she says. If you find yourself in Detroit, she recommends Astro Coffee.
