Healthy Airport Food For Bodybuilders

You don't have to blow your nutrition while flying as there are healthy choices available everywhere if you are willing to look beyond the ubiquitous McDonalds. I now have a layover in Tokyo and although I was momentarily tempted by the deep fried tempura I opted for this incredibly healthy sushi. OK, I know brown rice would have been better than white rice but I didn't want to cause an international diplomatic incident by asking a professional sushi chef to use brown rice. My guess is that would be about as well received as asking for a bottle of catchup at a five star French restaurant.

I perfectly planned my protein powder and protein bars. I ran out of protein powder last night and I have one protein bar left for the 13hr flight to Seattle.

Anyway, I digress. My point is that you can always find healthy, high protein options at airports all over the workd if you are willing to expand your comfort zone a bit.

I am really looking to finishing up my "staying fit while traveling" series!!

  1. Ha! Sushi IS great. But a question arises. Sushi in Japan? In an Airport? I fear it must have been 5 $ a-piece.

    I think the big deal is that the companies can't be hassled to package and care fore diverse menus, and they level the choice to what is "yummy and tasty", that is, the stuff you normally would have to spit out, so good it tastes. Sure, they add the vegetarian meal, I imagine it is a legal requirement, but that's about it. Sad.

    Airports AND Airlines are the worst for finding true healthy alternatives. Some half hearted attempts..usually marketing as low fat (usually means high sugar) or natural (laden with sodium). What I don't understand is that many business travelers are trying to be health and fitness conscious. I would think there would be a market for "real" food that is low fat, high fiber, low sugar, whole grain, high lean protein and low sodium; if there was I would definitely buy-it.

    Love the Blog Scooby…You keep us honest to the truth!
