When I first flew to New York, about ten years ago, I used to be a very fussy eater, to such an extent, I wouldn't eat any food with the green coloured ingredients. Weird, right?!
I was quite pleased to book a non-stop flight from Barcelona to New York so I didn’t have to worry about the hassle of having to stop-over at some airport and try to find something I would be happy to eat. However, while it should have been a pleasing journey it became my worst nightmare when I was given the first meal of the long trip: a Spinach omelette.
It was then at lunch time I really started to panic, when our second meal was served and that also had spinach on it again! When I landed at JFK airport I was so starving, so the first thing I did was hunt out a McDonalds McChicken meal. Since then I have learned to always travel with some snacks on me.
Now, I’m not such a picky eater and I will even eat spinach, and enjoy it, although I still wouldn't eat meals that had spinach as its main ingredient during one day.
Instead I'd rather figs.
So, here are...
