    If you'd prefer hummus over a hamburger as you dash through the airport this holiday season, you may be in luck.
    A survey to be released today of 15 major U.S. airports finds that 83% of restaurants have at least one vegetarian item on the menu — low in fat, high in fiber and good for your heart. That's up from 57% a little more than a decade ago.
    "There's certainly a higher demand for healthier options, and restaurants are attempting to meet that demand," says Susan Levin, nutrition education director for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which has been conducting the survey since 2001. "And while some restaurants might be still a little confused about what a healthy meal looks like, at the very least they are trying more and more every year."

    Glad to see the options getting more health conscious. Hate having no healthy options and feeling disgusting after eating the garbage that is offered.

    It was actually very goof and pretty large portion. Do not remember the price, but was very reasonable.
