How to Keep your Vegan Diet at the Airport
Eating healthy on the fly is never easy. Even though the US has seen a 600% increase in veganism within the last three years (that’s right, 600%), it can seem nearly impossible to find vegan- and vegetarian-friendly airport dining options. Well fret no more! Sometimes you just need to know where to look in order to find healthy hotspots that appeal to a wide array of dining accommodations. Next time you fly, keep your eyes peeled for these healthy options!
Almost everyone is familiar with Chipotle’s fast-casual mexican dining, but not everyone realizes how many dietary restrictions they are able to cater to.

With airport locations all over the country, Chipotle is both cheap and accessible.
