Gonna be out to South Africa next month!

Any recommendations as to what i should bring to eat on the 33 hr trip there???? (8 hr layover in dubai)

Beef Jerky? If so what brands do u recommend. Everything ive seen has a ton of sugar

What about coconut milk? I feel like that would be considered a liquid and i wouldnt be able to bring it on the plane

thanks for the help

Did you read the question, or just spout the first vitriolic thing that came to mind when you read the title of this post? They are asking what to bring on the PLANE, not what to eat in South Africa.

re: honey comment, yes, actually I dont really care for honey at all but dont use much, the bread isnt really sweet nor is it too plain. I think it turned out pretty good. I dont taste any honey either.

I keep mine in the freezer individually wrapped, I just pull it out and it defrosts within a few minutes while I'm heating the pan. I toast it right in the pan with ghee while I'm cooking an egg in the same pan. Frozen should last until you eat it up!

Dried coconut flakes would be good to include.

From experience I always bring several different things.

1) my own version of lara bars full or proteins,fats and carbs, perfectly balanced

2) my own version of a chocolate power bar, again perfectly balanced

3) a variety of nuts, some cheese if you can squeeze it by security (if you do dairy) I also make a 'crackery' type thing with nuts for the cheese.

4) I make a coconut bread, just something different to bring

5) I don't do jerkys but if you could make your own that would work while on the long flight. After that you might not be able to bring it into another country

6) the airport always has some place selling fresh fruit, apple/banana in a pinch. Not sure if you could get them past security? veggies?

7) shredded coconut for a treat (forget the liquid, you wont make it past security)

I tend to get bored quickly with whatever I have with me, but at least you wont feel hungry. Stick with water or bubble water or tea to be safe.

Proteins are tricky to get while on a plane.

edit: link to chocolate powder bar: http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/chocolate-recipes/chocolate-fridge-cake

refinements I made, added 2 scoops protein powder/vanilla, I use a variety of nuts 1.5oz amonds, 1.5 oz shredded coconut, 1.5 oz pecans, 1.5oz walnuts, 1.5 oz pistashios and add 3 chopped dates. I don't add the biscuits, sugar, cherries, or syrup. Mix it and pour in a bread pan, lined with saran wrap. put in freezer about 20 minutes, then i pull it out and pound it into a brick like shape to compact it. refreeze it til hard. Then I slice it into about 10-15 pcs and wrap each individually.

Lara Bar: sorry! can't find the link for the one I use, I have it printed out. But by googling you can find several homemade Lara bar recipes, heres a few I found that look ok.

http://www.52kitchenadventures.com/2011/03/16/homemade-larabars/

http://www.inner-gourmet.com/2010/02/recipe-homemade-lara-bars-cashew-cookie.html

As reference the one I use is: 1/2c pecan, walnuts and almonds each, 1tsp almond flour (just ground almonds) 3 dates, 1 egg beaten, 3tbs almond butter (or whatever butter you have), 1 tb honey (you can add dry fruit 1/2c to your taste. Line your pan-9x9- with parchment or it will stick, press out flat, I pre-score it into 10 bars, bake 250F for 45 minutes. Let cool then cut into bars, wrap each in plastic. (you could also add protein powder if you wanted but i don't)

the coconut flour bread is suprising good, tastes like corn bread with a coconut taste. When we fry an egg up in ghee i also put a slice in and toast in the butter serve the egg on top. http://www.maggiesnest.org/2011/03/19/recipe-coconut-flour-bread/

Hi,

There is no need to pack all that, everything you need to sustain your paleo diet you will find here. lots of organic markets and shops, we have the best meats you can dream off at ridiculously reasonable prices. So dont worry just bring yourself and lots of sunscreen. :-)

OP, since you are concerned about food for the flight, just bring nuts and request a gluten-free meal. Many countries have bans on importing fresh food, you may not be able to carry it. As far as what to eat during layovers, simple salads with chicken and no dressing are an easy choice.

Why not take a George Foreman Grill? That way, you can buy cuts of wildebeest or cape buffalo and grill the meat in your hotel suite. My next trip, I'm thinking about taking a grill and just buying meats from supermarkets. Hopefully the hotel/motel has a microwave, so you can boil/cook veggies and tubers, if you need to.
