Fresh and healthy airport foods do exist but who has the time to pre-plan and search? Here at Vane we are obsessed with finding healthy meals to make any trip a happier one.
The airport can throw off your healthy eating game because your options are often limited. Even when there are healthier restaurants and cafes at an airport, you may not know where to find them.
Sometimes a healthy spot you’re looking for is in another terminal or its inaccessible from the part of the terminal you’re in. Or maybe it’s pre-security and you’re already past security.
Our latest airport food journey has resulted in 8 foods that may make your next travel day a healthier one.
