Airports aren’t the easiest place to find healthy food. My colleague Shannon who works across the hall blogged about it recently on her fitness blog (in addition to being a journalist, she is a spin instructor. She may be the most fit person I know) and I am adding my voice to the chorus.
I normally don’t think about it before I get to the airport, but luckily, I happened to read Shannon’s blog and decided to plan ahead. I usually eat at Chili’s if I have time to sit down and eat before my flight, but I have looked at their nutritional content before and decided that maybe I should go for something healthier the day before the biggest eating day of the year.
Last year, Forbes wrote about the best/healthiest places to eat in the country’s busiest airports.
I had this whole great plan of stopping at Subway, home of Jared, but I got a late start today and didn’t make it. Total fail. I wound up getting a sandwich at Atlanta Bread when I got to Atlanta instead.
But, I did make a stop at Freshens in the Jax airport! I always get a smoothie when I’m in that airport. No idea why, just a habit.
OK, time to do some work and read a little bit. Ninety minutes until my flight leaves for Pittsburgh! Should get in at about 9 p.m. So excited!!
