When it comes to healthy cities, Seattle tops the list (It’s true; the Google said so!). We’re super green and we eat lean. Hey, even our kids love kale chips as a snack. But sometimes, you just need to indulge your taste buds. So, go bike the Burke or SUP the morning away on Alki, then take the fam (and your appetite) for a tour of some delightfully delish food fads that are truly drool-worthy. But maybe not so skinny jean friendly. Nosh on!

Artisan Toast

In case you haven’t heard, the best thing since sliced bread is here. And it’s, well…sliced bread. Gourmet toast is all the rage these days. Thick pieces of homemade bread, spread with sweet or savory homemade toppings, straight from the oven. Are you drooling yet? Find this tasty comfort food fad at Toast in Ballard, where owner (and Seattle mom), Ashlie, has dreamed up some oh-so-yummy family faves. We recommend the mixed berry for the tot lot and the pesto toast for their parents. A little bit of gooey warmness on a misty spring morning? Yes, please!

Find it: Try this new twist on an old favorite at Toast.
