I find myself in airports a lot.
And in some ways, airport food is worse than airplane food. At least airplane food is so bad that it’s not even tempting. (If they even serve it anymore.) But when you find yourself in an airport, there are lots of unhealthy food options — and you’re typically stressed out and in a rush.
The best food options usually are:
- a nearly frozen chef salad loaded with cheddar cheese
- over- or under-ripe fruit (often apples that leave your teeth sticky with sugar residue)
- a small, $8 bag of nuts (where they try to tempt you to buy a sugar-loaded candy / dried fruit / peanut mix)
- use the opportunity to fast (a la Art De Vany)
Well, there is a welcome development! Enter the hard-boiled egg. I’ve recently noticed that a number of cafes, coffee shops, and even 7-11 now carry a little package with a pair of hard-boiled eggs. This is a great way to get some convenient, real food on the go. Cheap too.
And remember, eggs are good for you, including the yolk!
