Business travelers, constantly on the road and dependent on restaurants and airports for most of their meals have plenty of options to eat healtheir.
A recent survey by Health Magazine showed that restaurants at 75 percent of the nation’s busiest airports offer at least one healthy, vegetable-focused dish. This year’s healthiest airport was Baltimore/Washington International Airport. Vegetable and hummus plates, gluten-free quinoa and locally sourced salads helped it earn the top spot.
However, other airports have some bragging rights as well, according to Cooking Light Magazine.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL): Atlanta caterer Proof of the Pudding trims the fat and sodium while incorporating the “Super Foods” concept at its “gourmet fresh” kiosks.
Dallas/Fort Worth International (DFW): Au Bon Pain's Chicken Caesar Asiago salad is a favorite (260 calories). Ask for the Light Olive Oil Vinaigrette (110 calories, 10 g fat).
Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD): Saladworks makes munching on produce a breeze.
San Francisco International Airport (SFO): At The Plant salads, smoothies, grain dishes, and sandwiches made exclusively from 100 percent organic ingredients grown and raised in the area are available.
