Do you have an Instant Pot? Well, it’s time to jump in and start making some healthy recipes! Don’t be intimidated; your electric pressure cooker can save you time in the kitchen and is safe and easy to use.
Why You Need an Instant Pot
An Instant Pot is a device that combines an electric pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, and yogurt maker all in one handy unit. Oh, you can sauté with it, too!
It’s easier to use than a traditional pressure cooker–just press a few buttons and you’re good to go.
The Instant Pot is great for one-pot meals or staples like rice and quinoa. I will ONLY use my Instant Pot for hard-boiled eggs.
I love my Instant Pot so much, I wrote a cookbook full of healthy recipes using just your Instant Pot! With this cookbook and this list of 150 Healthy Instant Pot Recipes, you’ll be ready to use your electric pressure cooker every day of the week!
