Quick & Healthy: While Au Bon Pain can be found at many airports, its presence in Dallas is huge. One of our favorites is the Chicken Caesar Asiago salad (260 calories, 490mg sodium). Ask for yours with the Light Olive Oil Vinaigrette (110 calories, 10 g fat, 420mg sodium). One more plus: many locations will let you design your own sandwich from healthy picks like multigrain bread or baguettes, all natural chicken, oven roasted turkey, and guacamole. Locations: Terminal A, Gates 13, 25 & 38; Terminal B, Gate 20; Terminal C, Gates 22 & 33; Terminal D, Gate 27
Runner Up: Pajama-clad servers at Cereality dish up cold and hot cereals with your choice of milk (skim, 2%, or soy) and add ins. It’s a great, light meal. Try the 280-calorie small “Health Kick” with skim milk, a mix of two popular dry cereals, dried cranberries, and walnuts for 2 grams of fiber, 13 grams of protein, and plenty of vitamins A and C. Location: Terminal C, Gate 6
