When was the last time you had a healthy meal at the airport? Limited options mean we often default to fast, processed foods when we fly. But healthy restaurants, cafes and juice bars are now making a much grander entrance into the world of air travel.

For those flying through Los Angeles International Airport, organic superfood cafe Beaming is now open at LAX in the brand new Terminal 1.

Los Angeles’ mayor described the new terminal as a “destination in its own right,” that “reflects the creativity at the heart of our city.”

We’re so delighted to see LAX providing travelers with healthy plant-based options before takeoff at the new terminal. It’s the kind of modern approach to eating on the go we can get behind.

What is Beaming cafe?

Beaming cafe elevates the experience of the traditional juice bar into a complete organic superfood cafe. As with their other California locations, LAX’s Beaming cafe is a destination for organic cold-pressed juice, superfood smoothies, and delicious, healthy takeout.

Some of the mouthwatering temptations include things like Ginger Kelp Noodles, Roasted Veggie Salad, and Raw Mushroom Wrap. They also offer chia pudding and overnight oats to-go.

The goal of their healthy grab-and-go cafes is to simplify the journey toward healthy living. This is particularly valuable at airports where we are the most rushed and stressed of all.
