There are some foods that should not be packed for the office, a plane, or any public space. Tuna fish, hard-boiled eggs, smelly cheese — anything that is going to be offensive to other people in proximity to you.

But when you’re Martha Stewart, you can do whatever you want. Stewart recently spoke to the New York Times and shared that her go-to travel snack is none other than hard-boiled eggs.

“My hard-boiled eggs are just so much better than any eggs on the plane,” Stewart said. “They’re from my own chickens. I take them for everybody I’m traveling with.” (Okay, it’s nice she shares.)

For longer flights she says she might make “a delicious smoked salmon sandwich on seven-grain bread” or tabbouleh salad.

Other Stewart-approved plane snacks include homemade yogurt with apple sauce. Basically, she comes prepared for any kind of hunger pang so she doesn’t have to eat what the flight attendants are serving.

“I try to avoid plane food most of the time,” said Stewart. “I just don’t find it very appetizing.”

But once she arrives to her destination, Stewart is not one to play it safe with the food scene saying she tries to make her all-to-frequent work trips pleasurable by looking for new restaurants. She says she’s never tempted to lounge in bed and order room service, preferring to “find the best breakfast place in town.”
