Our first week of Whole30 is over! Let me tell you, I decided to start on the most stupid weeks of them all - Dylan flew to Christchurch to play a show on Friday and I went out to brunch with my friend, Zoe, on Saturday.

Why are we doing Whole30? I'm sick of feeling bloated and need a kick up the ass, really. I've heard so many amazing (and not so amazing) things about it, so why not try it? And document it while I'm at it. Dylan is also partaking in my experiment, but he's also still having protein shakes like some mad bodybuilder.

Not to sound completely like my Grandmother, but pickling is one of my favourite things to do. There is nothing more satisfying than opening a jar of your own chutney, sauerkraut, preserved lemons or jam and being all "hells yeah - I made this!". I've never made my own pickled gherkins before, so I spent the last month or so researching recipes to inspire my own concoction when our gherkins starting to come into fruition.
