Traveling meat-free has never been easier. In a recent report, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) found that 82 percent of the most popular US airport restaurants now offer at least one “low-fat, high-fiber, cholesterol-free vegetarian entrée.” PCRM dieticians rated dining at 18 airports across the country, with Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport and San Francisco International Airport ranking the highest with 96 and 95 percent of its restaurants offering veg entrées. Options varied from Detroit’s almond rice salad at Mediterranean Grill to vegetable curry and rice plate at SF’s Harbor Village Kitchen. Since 2001, 25 percent more airport restaurants have become veg-friendly.
