Ready for some seriously amazing, HEALTHY Instant Pot recipes? These are the kind of Instant Pot recipes that make you enjoy cooking and eating, all while forgetting it's actually good for you. That's my kind of cooking!
When I decided to go sugar-free and cook with wholesome ingredients as much as possible, my husband WAS NOT happy. To his credit, it's hard to take a man who grew up on “meat and potatoes” his entire life and try to convince him that quinoa is a great substitute for steak.
It took me many years of trial and error and some adjustments to our palate to finally come to the place we are now. Our home-cooked meals now are loaded with veggies, whole grains, and a huge variety of ethnic flavors.
It also took many years for my husband to say, “You were right. Now stop with the smirk and pass me the salad.” Haha! I won him over, again!
My sister Cami once said to me, “You make healthy eating enjoyable” and I took that as a very great compliment and made it my mission to continue to do so.
So to show you how amazing healthy, wholesome eating can be, here is a roundup of THE BEST HEALTHY INSTANT POT RECIPES, you'll actually want to eat, again and again.
Often times people will tell me they want to cook healthier food, but they just don't have the time. Well, PROBLEM SOLVED!
The benefit of using the Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker is that it makes cooking quicker, more convenient, and a lot of fun compared to other methods that might feel daunting to someone after a long day. I do believe these recipes here will prove that to you.
My secret to creating healthy meals that actually taste amazing is all about SPICES! When you know how to use spices, you can easily cut down on added fat, salt, and sugar, and never feel like you have to sacrifice flavor and enjoyment of your meals.
Also, be willing to try a wide range of fruits, veggies, protein, etc. You may not like the taste of roasted butternut squash, but you might find that butternut squash soup is your new favorite food! Keep an open mind and a flexible palate and over time you will find more enjoyment in more wholesome food.
Are you ready to find out how good healthy food can be?! I'm excited to show you!
