Remember the days when airport food meant eating from vending machines? Here is proof that foraging on the road is improving. This is an excerpt of the 14th annual Airport Food Review from the Physicians Committee for responsible medicine that was just released today:
This year’s survey found that 71 percent of airport restaurants offer at least one plant-based, vegan meal option—a 25 percent jump from 2001, when just half, 57 percent, offered doctor-approved meals rich in the healthy basics: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes.
LAX gets top ranking this year with 90% of its restaurants offering a plant-based option. Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport comes in last place, receiving a failing grade, with plant-based entrées available at just 56 percent of its restaurants.
(See that, even the worst of the lot, has 56% healthy options)
