Airlines in America are in a race to improve their meals

Finance
IN THE 1950s—when the International Air Transport Association (IATA), a cartel of airlines, used to set fare levels and service quality on international routes—there were few differences between major carriers. One way to persuade passengers to choose one airline over another was to offer better meals as entertainment on board. And so an arms race to serve fancier food on transatlantic flights began.

Try this recipe: Wedge Salad with Shiitake "Bacon" The old-school American starter isn’t hard to whip up; it’s typically just iceberg lettuce that’s been topped with crumbled bacon, chopped tomatoes, and onions, and a blue cheese dressing.

A buttermilk dressing made from avocado oil mayonnaise and a light dusting of blue cheese bring down the dish’s fat content too.Let's block ads! (Why?) Food - Health.com

Here's exactly what to pick (and skip) to save on calories and carbs. "What should I eat when I'm on the go, and need to grab something fast?" That's one of the most common questions I get from clients. My typical response: look for a nearby Chipotle.  Right up front, I want to say that I have no affiliation with Chipotle, and never have. But as a nutritionist, I believe ingredients are the most important factor in deciding what to eat. And that's why, in my opinion, Chipotle's menu surpasses other fast-food joints.Just take a look at all the recognizable ingredients listed on Chipotle's site—from avocado to yellow onion—and compare them to the ingredients used by traditional fast-foo
