Y’all know how I feel about the keto diet. It’s my jam. I lost over 90 pounds on the ketogenic diet & I have maintained that weight loss for six years. The keto lifestyle is legit. If you want to know more about it, you can do that here. But today I want to focus on how these healthy, low carb Instant Pot recipes can help you lose weight!
About The Instant Pot
In case you haven’t heard, an Instant Pot is a multi-tasking cooker that does the job of a crockpot/slow-cooker, electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, saute & browning pan, yogurt maker, and warming pot. All in one! Instant Pots offer a more convenient energy efficient way to cook. (Electric pressure cookers are the second most energy-efficient cooking appliance. Microwaves are #1)
The Instant Pot may be your new best friend and secret weapon on the keto diet. While it can’t force you to make healthy choices, it can make cooking healthy ketogenic meals at home super easy. And affordable! Most of these keto instant pot recipes yield leftovers which means you will get a couple of dinners and maybe lunch for the following day!
All of this is fabulous, but my favorite thing about the Instant Pot is how fast it cooks everything!
For example, my Instant Pot DUO cooks a chicken thigh recipe that takes 6-8 hours in the slow cooker in 30 minutes. Boom. Instant Pot Gratification. Also, a big win for folks who wait until the last minute to answer the What’s for Dinner question that haunts every woman-everywhere.
Ready for me to shut up & give you those keto Instant Pot recipes? Fair enough. Whether you’re a meal planner or a last-minute Mama, these keto diet pressure cooker recipes will save you time and keep your diet on track! Enjoy!
