5 Ways an Instant Pot Can Streamline Your Meal Prep — and Help You Lose Weight
Meal prep is essential when you're trying to lose weight, but it can also be a time challenge. Among recipe research; grocery list planning and shopping; and all the chopping, cooking, and subdividing, prepping can eat up an entire day. And whether you're new to meal prep and cooking or a master of the culinary arts, not many of us are willing or able to give up a Sunday.
Fortunately, I started taking Instant Pot lessons with my mom last year (my cooking shaman) and was introduced to the infinite number of recipes this single appliance can conjure up. It's honestly mind-blowing and has taught me a lot about how to expedite meal prep.
Not only does the Instant Pot cut down on cook time, but in certain recipes (even simple ones!) it can yield better results (in my mother's words, "pressure-infusing maximum flavor and tenderness"), all while reducing cleanup (heck yeah) and allowing you to multitask more easily. So, I'm sharing the top five ways the two of us use the Instant Pot to prep healthy meals at home without sacrificing hours and hours every week. Try them for yourself, and see how much easier it is to stick to your plan and unlock your weight-loss goals.
