Everyone has an opinion about airplane food. What's yours?
When the attendants come around with snacks, I decline, having brought my own. Isn't it amazing that whatever they offer will be super high in sodium, saturated fat, sugar, and artificial ingredients I never heard of? And even more astounding is that people still eat those snacks.
You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she eats and by their food choices. If they gobble the greasy chips and chomp the high-calorie cookies, or if they hold their sandwich with unwashed hands and lick their fingers afterward, they just might not be health conscious.
Unobtrusively observing the eating styles of passengers can even become a form of airplane entertainment. Those who read while eating must have strong digestive systems. The ones who wolf everything down noisily are not sensitive to others around them, while the ones who pause between bites have manners.
It's easy to spot someone who chews with his mouth open, crumbs falling on his lap, or a person who takes bites so huge, he fills his mouth to capacity.
Since I must continue to fly to visit distant relatives and friends, I am trying to develop the new trendy "whatever" attitude.
