Traveling to, from or through Denver soon? If you are worried about plant based options, this article includes our top Denver Airport vegan options!

For as long as I can remember I have loved traveling. I love the airports, the flying, everything. But once I adopted a plant based lifestyle it became a little bit trickier to find things that fit my needs.

Now with the ever growing population of vegans out there, you can find meat free options everywhere, including the airport!

Denver itself turned out to be a vegan foodie’s dream! More on that later, but I should not have been surprised when I went to the airport this weekend and noticed my many options.

For breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between, here are my favorite stops:

Root Down
Located in Concourse C, this eclectic little place has quite the assortment of options.  From sweet potato waffle fries to loaded salads, you are sure to find something that pleases your little vegan heart!

If I were eating all three meals there, this is probably what my day would look like:
Breakfast: Tofu scramble with veggies and they even add plant based chorizo!
Lunch: Roasted Beet salad with sunflower pesto
Dinner: Veggie Burger with jalapeño jam
Snacks: Edamame Hummus plate

Other notables are their steel cut oats and “Traveller’s Bento Box,” which has a tofu option!

Modern Market
Located inside Concourse B, this place had a great diverse menu! A cooler lined with fresh pressed juice is always the way to get my attention.

Here they also have a Tofu Scramble, with a southwest twist! Seasoned tofu with black beans, corn and home fries, perfect fill up before a long flight.

Their steel cut oat options were caramel apple or peanut butter, hello delicious. They also had KIND bars and a fresh fruit salad.

Notable salad was a spinach kale blend with quinoa pilaf, grapes, carrots, almonds and champagne. You can even add avocado or organic tofu!

For you soup lovers, aka my mother, give their curry split pea a try. It is vegan and gluten free!

Pour le France
What caught my eye here was their grilled eggplant, zucchini, tomato panini.

Add their lemon hummus and dipping veggies on the side for a near perfect meal!

Their notable salad was a mix of greens with olive, sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms, garbanzo beans and tomatoes.

Cantina Grill
For a little something different, give this a try! Cantina Grill has made to order burritos, tacos, bowls and more.

Any place I can get chips and guacamole is alright by me.

Their veggie tacos and burritos include red onions, peppers, carrots, zucchini, corn and guacamole. Score!

Wolfgang Puck
Here I had to modify things a little more, but they still had great options! Their breakfast burrito came with eggs on it, but if you subtract those you still got hummus, roasted peppers, onions and crispy potatoes. Still great by my book.

For lunch options they had a hummus wrap with arugula, tomatoes, red onions and olives in an sun dried tomato wrap.

And their most intriguing salad was a blend of baby kale and quinoa, raisins, apples, fennel, tomatoes and lemon vinaigrette.

They even featured a classic spaghetti with garlic, tomatoes and basil.

Jamba Juice
I cannot leave out Jamba Juice simply because their smoothie bowls are to die for. Always a go to for me when traveling. Healthy and light. Their acai bowl is my fav!

If you are looking for light fare don’t worry, you can find options everywhere. Their convenience stores were loaded with trail mixes, granola bars and even hummus and pretzel cups!

In concourse B there was even a dried fruit and snack stand, how cool is that! Healthy vegan travel is easier than ever.

with love,
