There’s Good News for Travelers Looking for #TastyTrainFood
 

From the Capitol Limited to the Coast Starlight, plant-based meals on Amtrak trains are helping passengers keep their health on track, according to Physicians Committee dietitians who recently reviewed a selection of Amtrak menus loaded with veggies, beans, and grains.

The Silver Meteor Dining Car, for example, offers several tasty and healthful options including Vegetable Lasagna with Vegan Mozzarella and Chinese Rice Noodles and Veggies with Cashew Sauce. Passengers riding the high-speed Acela can power up on the Layered Quinoa Veggie Salad, and several train lines offer the Black Bean & Corn Veggie Burger.

Please tweet your photos of vegan #TastyTrainFood @Amtrak and include the name of the train line. The Physicians Committee will include the information in its compilation of healthful options for travelers.

Numerous scientific studies show a plant-based diet can help people prevent and even reverse diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
