My shut buddies, household and Jalop coworkers are very acquainted with my very lengthy listing of meals allergy symptoms. You is likely to be too, in the event you’ve ever sat on a flight the place the attendants make an announcement to not eat any merchandise containing peanuts as a result of somebody on board is allergic. Sure, I’m that very particular person.
I really like meals, and I like to journey, however since I used to be identified with extreme allergy symptoms practically 15 years in the past, each can result in nightmares. Now, one factor that has improved is discovering eating places in and round my locations that may cater to my allergy symptoms (with the assistance of many an app), nevertheless it’s the airports that show most problematic.
Most airports, the bigger ones at the very least, have a plethora of chain eating places to select from, however most all of them are off-limits due to my particular meals allergy symptoms. The meals marts, often sponsored by some media conglomerate, will generally have fundamentals I will pay three-times greater than wherever else to get, however they’re extra on the snack facet and fall in need of an actual meal. That’s, if they’ve these form of snacks in any respect.
For instance, one fateful morning, I arrived at Newark after a loopy weekend in New York Metropolis (it concerned watching what seemed to be a hit-and-run with a stolen automobile, adopted by an arrest of mentioned driver… all whereas I used to be driving a press automobile). I additionally arrived snackless. I took an opportunity on the truth that my flight residence would solely be a few hours, so I figured I might handle. My flight ended up delayed for practically three hours, and I wandered the complete airport to seek out one thing I might eat. My choices had been water and a Bare fruit smoothie. I couldn’t discover a single factor suitable for eating exterior of that.
You already know what I’d love to have the ability to discover? Choices. A scorching meal. Are you aware how fantastic a scorching meal is after you’ve executed three connecting flights and have been in airports for 10 to 12 hours straight? Particularly when it’s a scorching meal that gained’t land you on a gentle stream of Benadryl, H2-blockers and probably per week or two of steroids? I dream about this.
Additionally, can we simply cease promoting peanuts?
