Weekly meal prep started to happen on my quest to live a healthier lifestyle. What is weekly meal prep? Well, it’s part of my Sunday morning in the kitchen making sure I have healthy stuff to eat for the coming week.

Spanish pickles are crazy vinegary (is that even a word?) and I don’t like them at all; I usually buy German dill pickles. I’d been seeing lots of blog posts about making quick pickles however I never found the little pickling cucumbers so I just forgot about it. That is until I was in the El Corte Inglés (Spain’s answer to Macy’s) supermarket and I found little mini cucumbers. Logically I snatched up a few little boxes and set out to make pickles.
