    ohh that oatmeal pancake looks fantasttttic!!

  3. Poached salmon?? That looks so delicious! Mmm, and so does that strawberry dessert….yum!

    I can never sleep on planes, but I hear it’s best to bring your own pillow and for me it’s best to get a window seat so I can lean my head against the window!

    As for snacks, I always pack fruit and my granola. I pack healthy snacks because airports and airplanes don’t EVER offer anything healthy! It bothers me.

  4. Oh, and have a blast!! Haha, forgot to mention that ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hi Coco,
    Have a wonderful trip! I hope you have a great time with your friend Mara.
    I don’t know how to sleep on a plane, either… even on really long flights, I can’t fall asleep ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    I can’t wait to hear about your adventures in Germany.

  6. oh my gosh.. i want to hug you for this post..for the positivity radiating off of it and your eats!! thank you for your sweet comment.. HAVE A GREAT TRIP!! cannot wait to hear about it-u deserve it love!

  7. I hope you have a very safe safe trip.
    Your pancakes look wonderful. I still haven’t tried spaghetti squash! I love salmon and fish too, all good stuff.
    It would be so interesting to learn more sometime about how you find the food culture differs from U.S., Argentina, China, etc…
    have a nice trip ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I love those flatbreads!

    And your pancakes look amazing.

    Enjoy your trip lady!

    Music downloads, fitness, good + new giveaway on my blog, I’d love for you to visit!

  11. I hope you have a safe trip and lots of fun!!

  12. Have a safe flight and wonderful time! I take some melatonin to fall asleep on flights! It works wonders! I usually bring a bunch of bars with me too.

  13. I’m craving an oatmeal pancake now, yours looks delicious!

    I hope you have a safe and wonderful trip!

    To help me sleep on a airplanes, I like to bring my ipod and listen to relaxing music (something like soundscapes or Enya). I also like to bring an eyemask and a blanket. Hope this helps!

  14. Oh thatยดs so cool your visiting Germany! Hope, you have a great stay! Be sure to dress warm, as itยดs really cold over here!

    And be sure to eat lots of Lebkuchen and have some Glรผhwein, too, if your planning on visiting a Weihnachtsmarkt!

  15. Oh my gosh, have a great trip!! I studied abroad in Austria one summer and made a trip over to Munich. Germany is FUN. Ich liebe Deutschland!!!

    On international flights, they usually give you free alcohol, and that really helps me fall asleep! Also, remember to dress warm b/c the blankets in planes are really thin and it gets cold!

  16. Have an amazing trip! I usually just bring books to read and some good music on my ipod. Snack wise I always have containers of oatmeal handy (Never know when your gonna hit a big layover) some fruit and chopped veggies and bars. Easy to pack and filling! Have a wonderful time!!

  17. Sorry I couldn’t see u off.
    Have a great time in Germany!

    have a wonderful trip. i like to do crossword puzzles on planes, for some reason they put me to sleep. weird, b/c it should be mentally stimulating.

  19. Safe travels! I hope the flight goes smoothly and you have an AWESOME trip!

  20. HOORAY FOR YOUR TRIP!!! I’m SO excited for you!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    OMG, I just LOVE Dr. Kracker, but I can’t find them anywhere!!! Total jealously. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    This sounds so weird, but I stuff a small pillow in my carry on, pull down the “pull-down table” on the seat in front of you, put the pillow on the table, and just bend forward and rest my head on the pillow. It sounds horrible, but it’s really the best position for sleeping on a plane that I’ve ever found.

    Don’t bring ANYTHING that might smell for a snack. Seriously, an air-tight plane is not the place to bring anything that might smell strongly… you and the people near you will thank me dearly. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Stick with granola bars, apples, raisons, trail mix, applesauce, carrot sticks, crackers, etc.


  21. Those broccoli tofu burgers look really good! Ive never heard of that combo before. Where did you get the burger mix from?

  22. Have a safe trip!!!!! I’m so glad you’re going ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re gonna have a wonderful time.

    Fave snack – apples! Lots of them.

  23. I hope you have a fabulous trip Coco! Awesome attitude–don’t let those other things bring you down because you have an amazing trip ahead of you ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like to buy salads/sandwiches/larabars and eat them on the plane, since they don’t have a great selection. Just stuff you would usually snack on at home and is not too smelly (aka kimchi ๐Ÿ˜ฆ )!

  24. So excited for you!! You’re so worldly CoCo! My favorite flight snacks are a plenty!!! I like Luna bars, hard candies like caramels, and japanese rice crackers. delicious!!

  25. Yay for positive thinking! ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s amazing how much of a difference having a positive outlook makes. Your food is delicious and colorful, as always. My favorite airplane snack is carbs. ๐Ÿ˜• Being that high up in the air makes me lose my appetite for veggies for some weird reason, haha.

    Have FUN in Germany!!!

  26. Aw, Coco. This post made me smile, to see you so excited and happy like this. You are quite a traveler, zipping from place to place!

    Fave flight snack = foot-long Subway. Mmm…
    Tips to sleep = get first-class. No other way.

  27. Wow. Your eats look incredible. I have to try that dessert pronto!

  28. Have a great trip! I wont lie, I take a couple of little blue pills to fall asleep on long flights… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the fage and strawberries. Looks delish!

  29. Various of folks talk about this subject but you said some true words!!
