Pie in the sky! How your inflight food can affect your mood

Whether you’re off to Alicante or Mauritius this summer, what you scoff while cruising at 30,000 feet has a huge affect on your mood and well-being.

New research by Singapore Airlines has revealed the best food and drink to make sure you feel tip top when you arrive on your holiday.

If you are likely to suffer from jet lag, use your meals as a ‘time cure’ for your body – by adjusting the amount and type of food you eat through the flight.

Always opt for a light meal that is relatively easy to digest as it’s best to arrive at your destination feeling slightly hungry. Eat a high protein meal when you land to keep you active and give your body chance to switch over to the new time zone.

For those unfortunate sun seekers who suffer from travel sickness, ginger is one of the best things to get into your system. So avoid the gin on your flight and opt for a ginger-ale from the drinks trolley.

If you are a nervous flier – Vitamin B, found in whole grains, fruits and vegetables have a huge effect on the nervous system, helping to reduce stress. 

Nibble on some celery before boarding to calm those pre-flight jitters and then make sure you get plenty of water when up in the air as dehydration can make you more anxious and induce headaches.

Boredom on flights means we all get the urge to pig out on junk food – but this can lead to indigestion and bloating. Not what you need before putting your bikini on for the first time!

Fatty foods will slow down digestion, salty snacks will encourage water retention and fizzy drinks will give you inflight bloating (shucks – they're our three main food groups!)

So instead opt for green tea to encourage those good digestive enzymes to get to work and munch on some healthy fruit instead of that jumbo bag of crisps.

Happy travels!

    Moldova's Gagauz region faces tough choice between Russia, EU

    With its green hills and sunny vineyards, Gagauzia looks like a haven of peace, but this Russian-speaking region in Moldova finds itself bitterly torn between East and West in the wake of the Ukraine crisis. "The situation here is very tense, there are major dangers lying ahead," said Nikolai Dudoglu, mayor of Gagauzia's capital city Comrat.
