My Nantucket n' JetBlue Foodie Experience

by Amie on September 24, 2010

Last month, I visited the fabulous spot of Nantucket, home to the best seafood and adorable cottages.  But, aside from my actual mini-vacation, I must tell you about my JFK Airport Jet Blue Terminal experience…it nearly blew me away.  Ya see, as a gluten and dairy intolerant gal, I cannot travel anywhere without ‘food’ on me for those ‘just in case’ moments when everywhere you turn, there is gluten and dairy…and I surely can’t live off of iceberg lettuce, so I opt to carry snacks, food and major meals on me at all times…yes, even on my way to work in the mornings, hehe…I’m a silly one, but it sure works.


Anyway, I arrived at the Jet Blue terminal at JFK Airport and was SHOCKED to see normal food; Fage, Boar’s Head, Odwalla, Luna Bars and a huge, fresh, beautiful salad bar that honestly looked identical to a Whole Foods Market salad bar…I seriously thought I was seeing things…I could hardly believe my eyes…it was honestly, AMAZING.  So, what did I do?


What any other foodie would do..I snapped some photos and had a party by myself in the Jet Blue cafe, hehe…

A delicious salad bar..

Dylan’s Candy Bar…great dark chocolate…

Fage yogurts…Stonyfield yogurts…amazing juices…

Fresh Fruit…and it really was fresh, no bruises or bumps…pure delicious fruit.

So, the moral of my lil Jet Blue- Nantucket getaway: Even if you suffer from food allergies or food intolerances, more and more airports, food stores and restaurants are catering to us (the odd balls)…

How exciting is this? Now, the next time I travel to JFK to the JetBlue terminal, I don’t have to cart a bag of my food through security, I can simply stroll on up and order myself a delicious, nutritious, gluten-free, dairy-free meal that actually tastes good n’ fresh!

Isn’t this great news? Have you ever been to the JFK JetBlue terminal to see this fabulous food assortment?  Do you bring snacks and food with you when you travel?

And…speaking of ‘Travelin’ …

I’m heading down to Atlanta for the Atlanta Gluten Free Vendor Fair on behalf of Rudi’s Organic…I’ll be hosting the Rudi’s Organic booth so come on by and say hello for a gluten-free Rudi’s treat!

Enjoy your weekend!
