Do you feel "checked out" often after air travel?

I love airports and air travel. 

I do not love airport/airline food. 

I have a full day of airplanes and airports tomorrow and I so dislike arriving to my destination feeling unsatiated or with inferior food in my belly considering air travel already stresses the body and  immune system enough as it is with dehydration, oxidative stress, electromagnetic radiation and the shared air with folx who may be in varying states of compromised health.

The meal in total consists of organic collard greens sautéed with red onion in humanely raised, additive free bacon fat; purple cabbage, carrot and pesto coleslaw; and gluten/corn free hushpuppies. 

And of course a little homemade 'kraut for probiotic love. 

The following is the recipe for the hushpuppies because they are the star of this plate in terms of southern comfort food.
