The Dallas-Ft. Worth Airport has launched a marketing campaign entitled "Eat Healthy at DFW" to support the effort of its concessionaires in providing healthy eating options. The concessionaires are participating in the campaign, each offering at least one low-calorie, low-fat, low-sodium, cholesterol-free, plant-based, or high-in-fiber entree or menu item.
"Although we are very proud to be the fourth busiest airport in the world, we are equally as proud to be one of the healthiest," says Ken Buchannan, executive vice president of revenue management at DFW Airport. "Providing our customers with healthy, diverse and nutritious dining options is another sign of our commitment to making our customer experience exceptional and supporting those who strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle, even while traveling."
Examples of healthy items being offered by DFW concessionnaires include
• roasted corn and lime crema tacos and black bean and roasted red pepper quesadillas from Urban Taco;
• enchiladas de avocado (vegetarian enchiladas with artichoke and avocado) from Cantina Laredo;
• veggie-packed teriyaki bowls from Blue Bamboo Xpress;
• "Tofusion" whole-grain brown rice bowls from UFood Grill;
• gourmet veggie plates such as the Southern Classic at Cousins Bar-B-Q, with baked beans, corn-on-the-cob, green beans, black-eyed peas and okra; and
• the award-winning Martha's Vegetable Plate at Reata, an expansive raft of simply grilled and roasted asparagus, zucchini, yellow squash, red bell pepper, tomato, sweet potato, spinach, balsamic-glazed Portobello, sweet onion, ranch beans and Spanish rice.
