Good morning! How was your weekend? We had a great time on Saturday: we went to the farmers market, ate lunch in our favourite place (click, click) and finish the day with a concert. Sunday was for cooking. So let’s get back to our healthy lunches and start the week with good intentions. This recipe is a modified version of the tradicional Spanish lentil soup, which is delicious, but quite strong. We have made it vegan and lighter.

We discovered The Yellow Bird coffee, a hipster style, Instagrammable goldmine café at the beginning of the Summer and we’ve been going back almost every weekend. The coffee is spectacular, the atmosphere is lovely and the breakfast options are healthy-ish and absolutely delicious. Plus, we finally have avocado on toast in Bremen!!
