Fly the Veg-Friendly Skies

Airplanes at Seatac airport

Every year the PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) reviews the veg friendliness of airport food around the country. 2014 marked the first year SeaTac was included in the survey. In its debut on the list, Seattle takes off in second place.

With 90 percent of restaurants offering at least one healthful option, travelers won’t have to look far to find nutritious meals with a Northwest flair throughout the airport. Vintage Washington serves fiber-packed oatmeal to early morning travelers and antioxidant-rich pecan apple salad later in the day. Seattle sports fans can visit Seattle Seahawks 12 Club for steel-cut oatmeal with fresh berries and chopped walnuts. Or they can try a vegetarian fiesta salad made with roasted corn, black bean relish, diced tomatoes, leafy greens, and salsa. Kobo offers vegetable sushi, garden salads, and miso soup.

Seattle visitors who crave coffee can head to Starbucks for prepackaged hearty veggie and brown rice bowls made with roasted butternut squash, beets, kale, red cabbage, steamed broccoli, and garden peas, topped with a lemon tahini dressing.

About Vegetarians of Washington

Vegetarians of Washington is a large non-profit vegetarian society based in Seattle, WA. We encourage people to discover the advantages and experience the pleasures of vegetarian food. We welcome everyone, whether you're an experienced vegetarian, a beginner or just curious. You don't have to be a vegetarian to join our organization, or to follow our blog! We run the largest vegetarian food festival in the country, Seattle's Vegfest, held in the Seattle Center in March each year. We also host monthly dining events and give free nutrition and cooking classes. We've written several nationally published books, including our latest book "In Pursuit of Great Food: A Plant-based shopping guide", which provides valuable information on what to buy and how to choose great food. Our other books include "Say No to Meat" which gives the information and real-world advice that new vegetarians need the most, in an easy question-and-answer style, the fact-filled "The Vegetarian Solution", and a wide range of delicious recipes in "The Veg-Feasting Cookbook". All our books are available in local bookstores, and via our website or Amazon.com.
