San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

Quick and Healthy: Airport eats go local and organic at The Plant. You’ll find salads, smoothies, grain dishes, and sandwiches made exclusively from 100% organic ingredients grown and raised in the San Francisco Bay area. Satisfy a burger craving sans guilt with their vegan Plant Burger, made from lentils, bulgur wheat, beets, and cashews. Location: Terminal 2, Boarding Area D, Gate 51B.

Runner up: With its homemade fresh and frozen yogurts, Fraiche elevates healthy snacking to a whole new level. Choose from non-fat, low-fat, and whole milk fresh yogurt or fat-free, low-fat, or soy frozen yogurt. Then crown it with tasty, wholesome toppings like local honey, freshly cut fruit, toasted nuts, or homemade granola. Location: Terminal 3, Boarding Area F, Gate 81.
