Healthy Airport Food: Denver Airport

Denver International Airport (DIA) is one of the few airports in the world where I am happy to have an extended layover. I’ve even changed my travel so that I end up in Denver around dinnertime – it’s that good! When you spend a lot of time on the road, you start to really appreciate healthy, high quality and good tasting food and Denver has plenty of options to choose from. Check out more healthy tips for DIA here.

ModMarket (B Gates – Center & C28) Menu

With a mission “To serve amazing, healthy food to as many people as possible” it’s not surprising that I am obsessed with this place. ModMarket has gluten free, vegetarian, vegan and dairy-free options on their menu, which also has nutrition information so you can easily select the best option for you. Check out either of the two locations and you won’t be disappointed.


Other Great Options

C Gates

Root Down (C Gates – Center) Menu 

Root Down is my absolute favorite place to eat at DIA and potentially my top airport restaurant. They describe their food as “Globally influenced cuisine that features an abundance of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options using locally-farmed, sustainable and organic ingredients as much as possible.” I can’t recommend this place enough – great tasting, healthy and extremely high quality food. This is an outpost of an insanely popular spot they have in the city which I was turned onto by a friend. Root Down
