Strawberry Coconut Sugar Cookies - delicious vegan summer cookies. We love this recipe! They're chewy, sweet, full of strawberry flavor and absolutely heavenly. Gluten-free, vegan, and without any processed sugar. | thehealthfulideas.com

Summer is almost here and I couldn’t be more excited because summer means fresh berries, cherries, tomatoes, and amazing tropical fruits!

What’s your favorite season? Mine is spring/summer. The transition between the two seasons is the best time of the year because the fresh produce starts coming in and the days are warmer, yet not as hot as they are in summer.

Toronto - Monthly Favorites: May 2016 | thehealthfulideas.com

Last month has been a pretty busy one. I flew to Toronto on the 13th and before that I rushed to finish my How to Make the Best Healthy Vegan Popsicles e-book in time before I left. I’m so excited about the e-book guys. Hope you like it!

I really enjoyed my time in Toronto. I went to a Justin Bieber concert on the 18th which was so much fun. I was on the floor level and it was magical. The food in Toronto was also great (nothing compares to New York, though) and I hope I can put together a post for you about where to eat in Toronto. I didn’t really take any pictures of food with my DSLR but I’ll try to put the post together anyway because I know some of you may find it helpful. I was kind of surprised there was only one Wholefoods in Toronto! Such a bummer. But there were a lot of small grocery stores with healthy food so that made up for it. More about that in my Toronto blog post! Anyways, let’s get to the favorites! I also share a couple of pictures from Toronto with you. :)

Maple Banana Granola

June 2, 2016
Maple Banana Granola - delicious easy to make granola full of nuts and seeds. Gluten-free and refined-sugar free! I love this granola, it's so simple yet so heavenly. | thehealthfulideas.com
Granola time!

I wish I had Anita’s coconut yogurt right now which I bought a few times while I was in New York and completely fell in love with. Can you believe there is no coconut yogurt being sold in the Czech Republic? Granted, there is one brand but it has xantham gum, tapioca starch, and it tastes more like a weird pudding than like yogurt.

I tend to always make a big batch of granola when I’m leaving for a holiday for some reason. I mean, in December, I made my Gingerbread Granola and then left for New York for two weeks and last month, I made a big batch of this granola and flew to Toronto for 9 days. See the patern? I can never enjoy my granola after I make it. First world problems if you ask me.

This is the simplest granola you can make and it’s super versatile, too! You can add basically any buts/seeds you like (or skip them and add more oats instead) it’s really up to you. I really liked the cashews in this. Next time I’ll probably skip the almonds and pecans and instead add more cashews and hazelnuts because they’re delicious so why not! You know what would be a great addition to this granola? Cacao. Why? Because chocolate makes everything better, duh.

Raw Maqui Berry Buckwheat Porridge

Raw Maqui Berry Buckwheat Porridge - raw soaked buckwheat, maqui berry powder, cacao, frozen berries, and a couple more delicious ingredients. I love this recipe, it's my go to breafast! So easy, healthy, and satisfying! | thehealthfulideas.com

Hey there, long time no see! I had so much fun in Toronto you guys. I’m always bad at uploading when I’m traveling, I don’t know why. But I’m back and I have a lot to tell you!

Well, first off, you know I went to Toronto to go to Justin’s concert and I gotta say it was amazing! It was such a great show, I’m glad I went. I actually have tickets for his concert in Prague this November and I can’t wait! (because apparently one isn’t enough for me)

And then there’s the working holiday visa I applied for. I got a response from the embassy while i was in Toronto that it got approved which means I can move to Canada and work there for a whole year!! I have a year from now to get there and then I can stay a year in any Canadian city I want, though I’ll probably choose Toronto. I still don’t know when I’ll move out there but it probably isn’t going to be sooner than the beginning of next year because I just got a job here in Prague at Raph Lauren which I want to keep for a bit.

And last but not least, there’s the ebook I created and posted a week ago! Right now, I’m actually in a process of redesigning it (the front cover and a few things inside) but you can still check out the first version HERE if you want. So many exciting news, right?! Well, at least for me they are!

So many exciting news, right?! Well, at least for me they are! I’m actually also planning to start a Youtube channel so that you can visually see how to make each recipe which is gonna be so much fun!

Now that we got all the news out of the way, let’s get to the recipe!

Monthly Favorites April 2016

Monthly Favorites: April 2016 | thehealthfulideas.com

April was definitely the month of popsicles for me. Sometime in March an idea to create an e-book full of popsicles struck me and I’ve been coming up with recipe ideas ever since. I’m going to tell you more about it in an upcoming post but I’m almost done with it, it’s definitely coming out this week, and it contains 17 healthy vegan popsicles! :) I couldn’t be more excited about it and I hope you guys love it as much as I do because I honestly love every single popsicle recipe in it. I probably made over 200 popsicles in April so you can imagine what my freezer looks like. I’m actually eating a popsicle as I write this.

I was actually planning to create a breakfast recipes e-book but as I was brainstorming recipes, I came across a popsicle recipe I wrote down months ago and before I knew it, I was writing down all my popsicle recipe ideas instead of breakfast recipes. I had so much fun creating it and then eating the popsicles. There is definitely going to be also a breakfast recipes e-book in the future, but I decided to do the popsicle e-book first because summer is around the corner and we’re all craving popsicles (well, I know I am). Anyways, about that later, now let’s get to the best of April!
