Get your Instant Pot to do the hard work on Meal Prep Sunday with these 31 Healthy Instant Pot Recipes for Meal Prep! The pressure cooker will save you time by cooking your food quicker, and also has the benefit of freeing up your hands so that you can multitask in the kitchen.
Friends, there was a time when I thought my Instant Pot was 'overrated' and was disappointed in it's inability to cook my food 'instantly'. It sat in my cupboard gathering dust for almost a year before I gave it another chance, and BOY am I glad I did!
The Instant Pot may not actually cook food 'instantly', but it is now my go-to hands-free device when it comes to cooking so many recipes these days. From steel cut oats to sweet potatoes to chicken breasts and so many more recipes, when it comes to the 'hands off' factor, the Instant Pot is where it's at.
