Dietitians from Henry Ford Hospital’s Heart & Vascular Institute periodically award HeartSmart® emblems to healthy menu choices from 40 different vendors.

Quick & Healthy: Quite a few menu items from the Mediterranean Grill pick up HeartSmart® emblems, giving the hungry traveler lots of choice from Tabbouli to a warm Almond Rice Salad made with garden veggies to a Vegetarian Stir Fry. Location: Concourse A, Gate 54

Runner Up: With good quality sushi and sashimi (there are vegetable rolls if you don’t eat raw fish), Sora Japanese Cuisine & Sushi Bar makes a healthy, if more expensive, choice. Go easy on soy to keep sodium in check. And add a side of edamame for a healthy vegetable nibble. Location: Concourse A, Gate 35
