Intercontinental a Xanadu of Healthy Food, Group Somehow Says
But it appears there's one area where we are not totally in the grip of the fried-food cabal: The airport.
Bush Intercontinental Airport came in fourth in a nationwide survey of healthy airport food offerings done by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which certainly sounds like a very important committee.
Fifty of the 60 restaurants at Bush "offer at least one low-fat, cholesterol-free vegetarian entrée," the survey says.
Worst among the dozen airports were Las Vegas, Atlanta and -- in last place -- Ronald Reagan National in DC, where apparently they're still trying to convince people ketchup is a vegetable.
Susan Levin, a dietician with PCRM, says travelers always have options.
"Even in the lowest ranking airports, it's easy to find a bean burrito or a veggie burger," she says.
Yes, but then you have to eat the thing.
