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. :)
