Just Spotted at Dulles International Airport
August 23, 2013

This weekend, I’m packing my bags to travel to the exotic locales of Fergus Falls, Minn., and my hometown of Fargo, N.D., for lectures on Power Foods for the Brain. I’ve noticed that even with all the new TSA standards and safety regulations, airport travel still feels the same as it did 10 years ago. Except that now my carry-on’s just a little bit lighter. I used to pack enough snacks to last through a long wait in the terminal—with some extras in case of a layover—because I couldn’t count on the airports having any healthful options.

But this Cibo sign is just one example of some of the excellent changes airports have implemented in the past few years:

When the Physicians Committee first started examining airport food for our annual review, the options were abysmal. However, with 36 percent of consumers requesting meatless entrees, the demand for healthful plant-based meals has increased.

Of course, places like McDonald’s, Dunkin Donuts, and that fried chicken place are still common fixtures in terminals, but I’m certainly pleased with the progress. Even if you encounter delays, long lines, and bad weather, at least you know there’ll be something to eat that won’t raise your blood pressure!
