US Airports Getting Healthier

A new survey from PCRM finds that airports across the country are increasing veg options.

Just in time for holiday traveling, plant-based health nonprofit Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine has released its annual survey analyzing the food options at 15 of the nation’s major airports. PCRM reports that 83 percent of the restaurants have at least one vegetarian, low-fat, high-fiber, cholesterol-free entrée on their restaurant menu, up from the 57 reported in PCRM’s inaugural report conducted in 2001. Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport was crowned the healthiest airport for the third year in a row, with San Francisco International Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport in second and third, respectively. Vegan options at Detriot Metropolitan include the hummus and veggie platter at Heineken Lounge and the black bean burger at Slapshotz.
