They say a picture is worth a thousand words, which is great, because I really don’t want to waste brain power writing much about the airplane “meals.” In short, the tray contained as much plastic as food, and that’s being generous and not putting any of the food in the plastic category. The flight attendant was quite annoyed when I insisted on returning the plastic wrapped plastic utensils and the bottled water.
Fortunately, the food did get better after this, though it was not always amazing, and I was not pleased with the scarcity of whole grains and vegetables throughout the trip. Suffice it to say that I am very glad to be back in the kitchen!
Between the ridiculous amount of plastic waste involved and the uninspiring food, we passed on the meals altogether on the return flight, opting instead for the pizza we purchased the night before.
