The wraps are back, but McDonald’s has yet to answer the outraged cries of McSalad Shaker fans, and while they’re trying their best to offer better nutritious options, fast food chains still aren’t entirely cutting it with their healthy alternatives. After all, who will pick Wendy’s Apple Pecan Salad when there’s a Pretzel Baconator next to it on the menu?
So, if you’re looking for healthy menu options that look just as appealing as their bad-for-you counterparts, it’s safe to say that fast food isn’t the way to go. Instead, get your healthy eating cravings where the rest of the menu is just as wholesome as it is tempting at these local healthy restaurants in Everett.

The Valley Organic Deli
2805 Colby Avenue, Everett
Eating right and healthy comes naturally at The Valley Organic Deli. Owner Luis says the name came to him when he was hiking up to Goat Lake, pausing momentarily to marvel at the radiance of the valley’s sweeping views, thus naming the restaurant after the breathtaking valley. The restaurant itself was a dream that had been building in Luis from a young age as he held on to fond memories of growing up in his grandmother’s wonderful garden, gathering vegetables, and creating incredible meals together.
Now, he aims to bring the same love and care to the meals he humbly serves patrons in his deli. Though initially told an organic restaurant wouldn’t make it in the food industry, it seems The Valley Organic Deli is proving that healthy eating is becoming quite important to more and more people.
The Sisters Restaurant
2804 Grand Avenue, Everett
Cooking up cravings since 1983, with many delicious vegan and gluten-free options to choose from, along with their classic, wholesome, scratch-made fare made with quality ingredients and lots of love, is The Sisters Restaurant.

The girls’ mother had established the restaurant shortly after the waterfront lumber mills closed, during a time when downtown real estate was cheap and the city core was vacant. Since then, the beloved local favorite for dinner has built a following among locals with its no-nonsense, from scratch, all-American comfort food, pastries, and pies.
