The key to beating jet lag on long haul flights is not to eat the airline food, according to scientists.
Somewhat to my surprise no, they\’re not talking about the quality of the food, rather, the time at which you eat it.
So my preferred solution of taking a decent picnic doesn\’t in fact work. Which is a pity as the slightly odd looks, leading to covetous ones, as you reject the airline meal but ask for a fork, before tucking into the lovingly prepared, say, bacon butties, boiled eggs, potato and waldorf salads followed by a couple of pieces of fruit can be most enjoyable to observe.
The actual menu you might differ over, but the basic idea itself is valid.
