Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine sampled food served by cafes in the largest airports in USA and found Detroit's airport tied for 2nd with O'Hare for best, healthy food. Dallas-ft. Worth tops the list.
Tops in Detroit was Tailpipe Tap's Motown Veggie Sandwich; almond rice salad at Mediterranean Grill; and at Max and Erma's, try the grilled veggie sandwich on ciabatta bread.
Has anybody tried them?
Other healthy airport food can be found at LAX, Newark, Denver, Phoenix, Minneapolis, and Las Vegas.
Better load up in the airport, you ain't getting much in the air.
jjaba, high flyer.

Dallas, Chicago, and Detroit Top the List of Healthiest Airports, Survey Shows
WASHINGTON —Holiday travelers should have no trouble finding a healthful meal in many of the nation's busiest airports, according to an annual report just released by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
PCRM nutritionists found that 82 percent of the restaurants surveyed offer at least one low-fat, cholesterol-free vegetarian entrée, making this the second year in a row with such a high score. The survey—now in its seventh year—examined food served at 15 of the busiest airports in the country.
However, some airports are much better than others. If you’re laying over in Dallas, Chicago, or Detroit, you’ll have no trouble finding a healthful meal. If you’re traveling through Washington or Miami, you’ll have to look harder....

But of course they forget to mention National Coney Island in Detroit, which is a bastion of healthfulness. Hmmm...coneys or almond rice salad, tough choice.

There is no shortage of establishments at the NWA terminal. You can find what you want.
My favorite place is the bar that allows smoking. Place is packed with smokers, some nervous about the upcoming flight, and some, literally running to the bar, cigarette in hand coming off a flight. Smoking is sure an interesting vice.

E.d., change that order to a veggie wrap. Got anything like that at Detroit City Airport, on the Eastside? jjaba likes his vegie wrap with chili cheese fries.
"gimme a veggie wrap, small chili cheese fries, no chips, Vernor's, no Coke, low-cal cookie."

Thanks Detroitrise, jjaba talks about food at Metro airport and those knuckleheads bring up the Eastside. jjaba has told them in many posts, the Westside starts West of the MCS, past the old ballpark, even West of Corktown, but they don't get it. It's agrivating with that Denby crowd. All's they know is Gratiot ends around Woodward and Grand River starts around Woodward.
jjaba, feel the fatigue.

The Smith terminal has some healthy options as well. At the B.B. King Cafe, they load every burger up with extra fruit flies to make sure you get your daily allowance of protein. At the Barry Terminal, our international visitors may have a harder time finding food. If they hunt around that cold-war cinderblock bunker long enough, they may find some animal they can cook up. This helps some of our guests from undeveloped third-world nations feel at home.
Can't wait till they TEAR THAT SCHITT DOWN!
McNamara terminal is world-class, I love it.
