You’ve just started your business trip or holiday, you’ve reached the airport and you’re starving. Unfortunately you are at the mercy of airport fast food chains that provide you with processed food, full of sodium and calories. To make the most of the situation, here are the healthiest airport meals.
Starbucks perfect oatmeal – This oatmeal packs a low 150 calories, 5g of protein, no sodium and just 3g of fat. Packed with calcium and iron this is a good, less processed option.
Mcdonald’s Premium Bacon and Ranch Salad with Grilled Chicken – This salad packs 230 calories (without the dressing) with 30g of protein and 30% of a daily vitamin C. But the chicken has 400 mg of salt, therefore if your looking to reduce your salt intake, order the salad without the chicken.
Au Bon Pain Garden Vegetable Soup – A medium sized serving is just 80 calories and includes 3g of protein and 3g of fibre. This soup provides a good dose of vitamin A and C but is high on the sodium (1,120mg).
Starbucks Multigrain bagel – The fat free bagel has 290 calories with 14g of protein and 6g of fibre.
Dunkin Donuts Egg white with veggie flatbread – This flatbread is a filling option and is just 280 calories with 16g of protein and 3g of fibre. This meal includes bell peppers, potatoes and onions.
The above options are great for those looking for meals under 300 calories. However some of these choices are high on sodium. Therefore those who are looking to reduce their sodium consumption, should bring some healthy snacks from home.
