ask the nutritionist: eating at the airport

Finding a healthy, decent-tasting meal at the airport is like playing the lottery. Will I have time to grab something before grabbing my connecting flight? What restaurants will they have? Since I live in Minneapolis, I am lucky to have a lot of good airport dining choices and I usually am able to pick up a great salad to go – my favorite?  French Meadow Bakery & Cafe (a Minneapolis local) which offers organic, fresh, delicious food. (gasp! I know, it hardly seems possible)

While recently at Midway airport with about 5 minutes to spare I quickly scanned what was there and managed to find a “Pub” with to-go salads. I grabbed a Greek salad and fruit cup along with some raw onion crackers that I had brought along. Was it the best salad I’ve ever had? Obviously not, but it sure beat McDonalds. 
Score: B (I would have given myself an A but there was a lot of plastic waste that I was feeling really guilty about)
