With it’s Southern influences of BBQ and gulf seafood, DFW Airport isn’t loaded with healthy options but there are enough to keep your diet clean. Fortunately, the Skylink train makes transfers between terminals relatively quick, so if you have some extra time on a layover, don’t hesitate to change terminals. Banh Shop is a favorite for flavorful clean eating with some great vegan options. There are also a few good sit down restaurants for ethnic food like Mexican and Sushi.
